Silent PC Review likes the value behind the CX400W

At $50, an 80 Plus-certified, rock solid power supply that is quiet at low power draw is quite a value and a good candidate for fan modding in a silent PC enthusiast's special project. The CX400W cleanly rounds out the lower-end PSU offerings from Corsair.

Hardware Secrets gives the CX400W their Golden Award

Costing only USD 50, it provides an outstanding cost/benefit ratio. If you are building a mainstream PC and are not thinking of installing a very high-end video card you can buy this power supply with your eyes closed.
