The 450 watt Antec VP450 is crafted for quality, performance and incredible value. This entry-level solution gives you everything you need in a power supply. No twinkly lights or glittery paint jobs - a 120 mm fan for effective and quiet cooling, dual +12V rails for amazingly stable power and heavy-duty protection circuitry for peace of mind, no matter how demanding your system.
All the features, none of the waste: for builders that are strictly business, the VP450 is strictly power.
Standards and Features
The connectors and power specifications of the VP450 PSU are all compatible with ATX12V v2.3 and EPS12V v2.91 specifications. The VP450 also features 450 watts of Continuous Power, the actual stable power a PSU can output continuously at maximum load level.
A variety of industrial-grade safety circuitry will help protect your computer: OVP (Over Voltage Protection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection), OPP (Over Power Protection) and OCP (Over Current Protection). Sometimes the PSU will “latch” into a protected state. You will need to power off the PSU and clear the fault before it will function again. There are no user-replaceable fuses in your VP450.
+12 Volt Rail Distribution
The VP450 uses two separate +12 volt power rails. Different connectors are hooked up to separate circuits to aid in the balanced distribution of power between devices in your computer. The +12V rails have been assigned to different connectors to prevent voltage sags in one device due to sudden demands for power by another device.
