Thanks for the insight. Much appreciated.
Don't hesistate to recommend the VP450 in certain circumstances it is a good basic unit.http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Antec-VP450-Power-Supply-Review/1487/11
I recommended it a couple of times last week when posters where looking to replace oem units in pre-builts or low power builds.
It was on for $30 at a Canadian retailer = terrific value!
And you're correct it is much better then the majority of CM's low end offerings with fake labels.
Just not in this particular case.
