Extending Corsair’s legendary reputation in performance and quality, the new Corsair VX family of power supplies features the industry’s most efficient power management and ultra-quiet design for mainstream users.

This conservative design ensures reliable operation in today’s most demanding system configurations and adds compatibility for future platforms. The unique combination of rock solid performance and incredible value puts the Corsair VX family of power supplies in a class of its own. Ideal for home theater PCs and ENERGY STAR PCs, the VX line maximizes energy savings and minimum noise generation thanks to double-forward switching circuitry design. Each Corsair VX power supply is backed with an industry-leading 5-year warranty and 24/7 on-demand customer service.

It is not only quiet but also very efficient, claiming our number one efficiency spot with over 83%. So aside from having a quiet, stable, cost efficient system you are also helping to save the environment. Should the unit break some day, Corsair's 5 year warranty will ensure you get a replacement f
With good DC output quality under almost all circumstance, good efficiency, low noise, and plenty of power for most midrange systems the Corsair VX450W is a value product ( $79.99+Shipping & $79.90+Free Shipping ) with premier product performance.
It's with this in mind that Corsair has introduced its new VX range of power supplies. Coming in 450W and 550W variants and claiming over 80% efficiency across the complete range of load levels - not the 80% at full load many makers will quote - it sounds like it could be just the ticket.

This is a great value power supply on sale or price matched. Extremely quiet up to 250-300W loads and very efficient even at low loads. My HTPC with Core 2 Duo, GT240 and a couple of 7200rpm drives idles around 70W measured using a kill-a-watt.
Using this for my HTPC build. Would have liked a modular PSU to help with cable management and airflow, but this is a solid, reliable, well-backed PSU that I got for a good price. I seriously considered getting a fanless PSU, or one that shuts off the fan, but they are much more expensive and when you are watching bluray action movies you don't really mind the fan.
Its been powering an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550, iGP motherboard, and 2X1TB hdd office server 24-7 for the last year. Most people have to put their hand over the big 200mm top fan on the mini P180 case to believe the system actually running.
Corsair really makes some impressive pieces of equipment. This power supply is no exception. It is virtually silent, high quality and deliver enough power for a low end system. Highly recommended for small builds.
update d my 6 year old HTPC system to try to improve power usage. I was amazed to see a 50w reduction, which will translate into almost $50/year - the update will pay for itself in a little over a year!
This is my second Corsair PSU I buy and I'm still very satisfied ! I was looking primarily for a quiet PSU and this PSU is the most quiet active component in my build. The cables are long enough for an Antec 300 with the PSU on the bottom.
The review articles for this model on the computer hardware review sites are excellent. Quality components and output among the most stable. This unit is manufactured by Seasonic, which makes this my third Seasonic unit. The other two have given me several years of quiet, stable systems.
