Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply
The Antec 450W Power Supply Review
The Antec 450W power supply didn't just surprise me, but its power impressed much more. Don't let the brand or its looks fool you; this power supply can run a full ATX tower PC.
Can handle high power demands
Can fit in small, medium and full ATX tower computers
It can fit in a full ATX tower, but the cables are too short
Its cables are short and must be placed in a small or mid-ATX tower
The Small but Powerful Antec Power Supply
I had the Antec 450W power supply installed in my full ATX PC tower for almost a year. However, It wasn't a good idea because the main power supply cable was too short.
As a result, I had to run the main power supply wire over my video card. Consequently, this can cause a short and damage the hardware. Due to this, I had to wrap a plastic strap around the cable to prevent a short.
The Antec 450W Power Supply Under Pressure
To my surprise, the Antec power supply continued to run my full ATX tower with no problems. However, I don't recommend buying it for a full ATX tower because of the cables. Most of all, don't place any wires on top of hardware like the graphics card.
I ended up buying an EVGA 600W power supply for my full ATX tower. Probably, I would have kept the Antec power supply if the cables were longer. Therefore, I do recommend this power supply for a gaming computer.
