Excerpt: Need a high efficiency power supply? Think that the only way to go is to get a high end 1200W power supply? CoolerMaster just sent us there latest GX series power supply, the GX450. A 450w power supply may not seem like much but Cooler Master designed the GX450 for upper-mid ranged systems. Todays high end components are designed to use less power so, an efficient 80 plus 450 power supply may be just what you need.
Summary: The Cooler Master GX 450 W is a good mainstream power supply, with high efficiency (between 81.3% and 86.4%), very good voltage regulation, and low noise and ripple levels.
It is very important to understand that the 450 W model uses a completely different internal design compared to the more powerful models from the GX series.
The fact that the over temperature protection kicked in during our full load test can be seen as a good thing or as a bad thing.
