The CX is much better than it was at first. Still, I am using a first Gen to power a GX2 and E7300. Not too shabby really,

^^Hopefully I will never experience a PSU like that.

To expand without going off topic, I also have no issue with the corsair cx (I put the first 430w version in my parents build, but its only an i3 running integrated). The older 400w were supposed to be very good for the price (seasonic based if I recall correctly). The newest ones (at least as far as I know) are fine and definitely better than the OPs, but not to the same standard as the others I mentioned.
