Its not the greatest psu but it has enough power to run your setup, or maybe not.

Quote:
Cooler Master Elite Power 460 W is simply an Elite Power 400 W with a new label. The two units are absolutely the same (the only component that was upgraded was the rectifying bride, but this change didn’t make any difference in performance). This is simply unbelievable. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this kind of thing still happening in China, but here in the United States? C’mon…

Another example of false advertisement is the manufacturer listing over current protection (OCP) as a feature available on this power supply: inside the unit the space labeled “OCP control board” is empty.

This unit can’t deliver its labeled power – like Elite Power 400 W, it can only deliver up to 420 W. To make things worse, this unit is sold for USD 10 more than Elite Power 400 W – an extra 33% profit for Cooler Master for counterfeiting their own power supplies.

95w cpu, 50w board, 130w gpu = 275w

If the psu actually only supplies 420w - 130w(3.3+5V) = 290w

It does have a 6 pin pci-e, its up to you, Malmental would you use it on your components?? (be honest)

Ok, all I'm saying to Comp Guy is IMO its not worth using it and frying your other componets....maybe.

You could use it and be fine but its pretty close to its limit anyway so a bit of extra wouldn't do you any harm.

$50 is piece of mind for your $100's worth of other equipment but the choice is yours, just tryin to help. :)

Are you seriously gonna change your card so you can use that psu.

Just change your psu and stick with the 450.

yeah ill see if i can return it what do you think about this running a 5770 off this psu? http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/how_build_awe...

tell you how important a good psu is then they tell you to use a crappy one...cmon people!
both the cooler master elite power and extreme power and junk.
cooler master's other series are mostly decent and/or actually quite good. but stick to brands like seasonic, antec, corsair, etc, and you wont have any problems with your pc.
