Inside the Box

Pulling the CX430V2 out of the box reveals rather simplistic but effective packaging. The box is just the right size for everything to fit snugly inside and the power supply itself is protected by a bubble wrap bag.

Taking the power supply out of the bag, we find our I/O specification label and see that the power supply is finished in a rough black.

Corsair's logo and the model number are displayed on both sides of the power supply.

The front is a blank slate with the exception of the native cables that exit the power supply.

It is nice to see an on/off switch included on a budget power supply. The standard honeycomb mesh grill allows for plenty of airflow.

Cooling the CX430V2 is a 120mm fan with wire grill on the bottom.

While you're usually lucky to even get mounting screws with budget power supplies, Corsair makes sure you're taken care of with that and more. We also find plenty of cable ties, a case badge, the user manual and AC power cable.
