Pros Value, quality, Bronze certificate, CM warranty
Summary The unit itself isn't much suprise, standard of what you would expect. However, when I look at the 12v rail on the chart, it gives 35A. This is uncompareable by some cheaply made 600W PSU that goes on sale for less than $30. At least with this 450W unit, I can run a nice video card plus a decent cpu overclock while running 4 HDDs without too much worry.
Cooler Master releases a whole new mid-range power supply, GX-450. This power supply is specifically targeted at systems in the upper-mid range, yet reasonably priced. The Cooler Master GX Series of power supplies feature a single highly robust 12 V rail, proficiently delivering power to the most demanding components including the processor, drives, and cooling fans. Now including a double-layer EMI Filter, an intelligent 120 mm controllable fan and an active PFC/PWM combo controller for increased efficiency, the GX Series will keep the power in your hands.
Single 12 V Power Rail Tackling challenges from the most power-intensive peripherals head on, this solitary 12 V power rail provides ample power and strong resistance to any overloading.
Double-Layer EMI Filter Dual protection from electromagnetic interference, thus restraining noise and interference for greater protection for you and your connections.
