in Official Corsair website, I found if PSU Corsair VS 450w is no applicable by 80 plus ?

does it mean the PSU isn't pure PSU ?

No, it means that the PSU is not even 80+ certified. Its a must 'not buy'. It means the efficiency of that PSU is not equal or above 80%.

Yes that is not a 80 plus certified PSU, and not a trusted unit. Try HX or TX series of Corsair. Or go with XFX, Seasonic or Antec.

@4745 you are wrong bro, we are discussing about Corsair VS 450w Series not VX 450w Series as you were said :)

Yeah, the VS series are not officially rated on the 80 Plus scale, but it's still not a bad PSU. Honestly I'd probably go with a CX modular if you're looking for something sub $100. You get an 80 Plus Gold rated PSU that'll look good in any case because it's modular.

^I think OP meant clean current.

@ OP, if the PSU fails to provide clean current it will damage the components. And cheap/crap PSU's inflate the wattage then they actually provides, so eventually they will fail on load. Worst case scenario the PSU can/will take out other components with it too.
