Cabling Arrangement

While there isn't a lengthy list of cables here for the CX430V2, it isn't short on what you'll need by any means. Of course, we find the 20+4 pin Main and ATX 4+4 connectors. The single PCI-E cable has only one connector and is of the 6+2 variety. Peripheral connections are handled via three cables. Two of the cables have dual SATA connectors on them while the third has three Molex connectors and a single floppy connector.

As you'd expect, the CX430V2 uses a single 12V rail. Moving on.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening up the power supply, we find what should be ample cooling for a low end power supply.

The primary capacitor is a single Samxon cap rated for 85C. It would be nice to see at least Taiwanese capacitors here instead of Chinese.

Taking a look at the secondary capacitors, we find a mix of more Samxon caps with a few Teapo capacitors. At least all of these are rated for 105C.

Keeping everything nice and cool is the 120mm Yate Loon fan, model D12SH-12.
