Is it 80 plus?
How good reliable is it?

Edit: will be used in UK :)

It should be enough to power every component in your computer. 80 plus is fine, I would only recommend that you get something silver rated and up if you have really expensive electricity were you live.

If you plan to overclock the CPU+GPU I really would advise going larger with your PSU. I recommend going with 600w Corsair/Antec/PC power and cooling/Seasonic PSU. Bronze/silver/Gold certified.

460w will be fine for stock, but not overclocked. Also you would be pushing the 460w PSU too much in my opinion. Even if not overclocked you would be around the 400w range while stressed. It's generally not recommended to run that close to the maximum PSU wattage if you want good efficiency and a longer lifespan overall on your PSU/System.

It can be overclocked XD the total watt usage of that computer is about 360 un-overclocked... overlcocking will hardly use another 100 more.

So is this ok and a reliable powersupply?
Can anyone confirm if its 80 plus?
Also is it as good as CX430 or better?


It doesn't have any 80 PLUS Certification since it's not in the certification database.

I wouldn't consider it to be any better than the current CX430 version.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 670 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

The FSP HCN Series 460W (FSP460-60HCN) power supply unit, with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 34 Amps and with one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector, is electrically sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 670 graphics card. It is deficient by one PCI Express supplementary power connector so you'll need to use a dual 4-pin Molex peripheral to PCI-E adapter cable.

I understand the it doesnt have the 80 certificate on the 80 plus site but this http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?dept... Shows its 85% efficient @ 50% load! How come?
Since im looking @ load 300watt pull non 80 78% means I will be only about 5 watt more waste right compared to 80 plus.
Well 80 or not it is reliable in terms of usage right? I mean end of theday it is a FSP right?

It cost money to get 80 PLUS Certification. FSP must have felt that the cost benefit wasn't worth it based on the market segment that they were marketing/selling to.

80 PLUS Certification has nothing to do with reliability. The certification test doesn't even subject the power supply to real world ambient operating temperatures.

Reliability is not guaranteed just because of its brand name. You need RMA data to determine that. You could try asking FSP Group, if they're willing to provide that information, but you can probably guess what the answer to that will be.
