Corsair SF450 Platinum SFX PSU Review: Best of the Best

The SF450 Platinum doesn't replace Corsair's 80 PLUS Gold-rated SF450, but rather improves upon it with higher efficiency and better performance.

  1. I run a SF600 Gold in one of my setups. To improve on that is awesome. Thanks for the review Aris!
  2. Nice to see more quality PSUs available for small form-factor cases. The included ATX-to-SFX adapter is welcome addition, but I prefer the flat non-sleeved cables found on the SF450 Gold in small cases where space to bundle cables is limited.
  3. I've been running for 3 years in a row, almost every single day with the PC on, a FSP FSP300-60GHS-R SFX PSU in my custom-made mini ITX system. It is rated at 300W, 80 plus, 80mm fan with sensor, completely silent, comes with an ATX bracket+cable+screws, user manual plus nice box, a total marvell. I think it is a very respectable PSU (good internals) if you ignore the standard satin gray color.

    Well I'm here to say that the Corsair SFX PSU is very impressive but for that price you'll have to justify the buy with a very specific purpose of your own. I can only recommend the FSP SFX PSU, the 300W model (the 450W model is said to be loud), it is more than enough for HTPC and low power ITX parts (and midrange hardware as well: I5 + GTX1060).

    Disclaimer: I do not work for FSP ;p
  4. Great review. Amazing these SFX's getting so good even with less room.

    May I suggest the latest Rosewill Capstone M lineup by Andyson for a future review. The previous Superflower and Enhance units were well reviewed but they switched to the Andyson GX platform. Thanks!
