Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Failed after 2 years 06/25/2015

This review is from: Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Worked great until it didn't.

Cons: Failed severely.

Other Thoughts: Ordered this back in may 2013. Failed in june 2015.

Failure was one of the large output capacitors leaked/blew up/caught fire.

2 years seems a little short for a capacitor failure when run far below 600 watts. In an airconditioned space.

3 out of 5 eggs So far so good 06/25/2015

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB - 450-Watt ATX V2.2 Power Supply

Pros: Looks well made. What i can see of the parts inside looks ok. Nice cable wraps. Voltages look stable so far.

Cons: One of the middle of the wire SATA drive connectors is UPSIDE DOWN! this makes it impossible to connect two devices that are near each other without flipping something over.

Easily done in my case. But for a lot of setups that would be impossible.

Two of the rear screw holes are stripped out.
No big deal but still...

-2 stars total for those two things.

Other Thoughts: So far so good. Good price. Got here asap took 2 days total!

It was an emergency replacement for my previous power supply which blew a cap after 3 years of 24-7 use.

AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy install. Low profile heatsink and cooler. Quiet.

Powerful for the cost.

Low power usage.

The 'video' portion of the system seems to use 789meg out of a 4gig total installed according to cpuz/gpuz utils.

This may be changeable or dynamic but i have not found it. yet. Either way no problem for what this will be used for.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: With a board that has ati/amd chipsets. Your driver install routine is down to just installing the latest catalyst package. Video/mobo/chip all in one. Very handy.

This is no powerhouse game machine chip. But it is capable of running far cry 3 on mid+ settings ok.

Well suited for a dedicated web browsing/video viewing/music/general purpose machine.

A perfect 'normal' computer for everyone but gamers and extreme users.
