Corsair VX450W: Quiet Value PSU

Viewing page 2 of 5 pages. Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next


The exterior of theVX450W is archetypical black.

Nothing out of the ordinary here.

No vents other than the fan intake and backside exhaust grill.

A single 120mm fan draws air into the power supply from below, blows it across the heatsinks, then out the low-impedance back grill. A wire grill protects the fan while providing a low resistance to the airflow.

The label.

We know that Corsair is not the manufacturer, but the E307858 UL file number marked on the label does belong to Corsair. The HX series are made by Seasonic; there's little reason to doubt that the VX450W is also made by Seasonic.


All the output cables are sleeved.

They are long and plentiful. There are a total of eight cable sets:

  • 22" cable for main 20+4-pin ATX connector
  • 22" cable for 2x12V AUX12V
  • 22" cable for 4x12V AUX12V
  • 24" cable for 6-pin PCIe connector
  • 2 x 35" cable with one floppy drive and three 4-pin IDE connectors
  • 2 x 28" cable with three SATA drive connectors
