Sub-$75 Mainstream Power Supply Roundup

Huntkey Jumper 450B

The Huntkey Jumper 450B comes in foam-lined packaging with a handle. Except for the 450 W PSU, the box only contains a bag of screws.

The power supply's brushed metal surface gives it an elegant touch, but this high-quality impression quickly fades when looking at the only partially-sleeved cables.

Cable length should be sufficient for most computers, but the number of connectors is unsatisfactory. Having just two Molex connectors doesn't meet modern standards. The Huntkey Jumper 450B is the only PSU in this test with two PCIe connectors, one of which is a 6+2-pin.

  • That was scary seeing the AXP PSU blow up...

    I still remember buying my Corsair VX550W for $91CAD just a year and half ago. Amazing how prices have come down for cheap, capable and yet quality PSUs over time.

    Oh, and it was interesting to see a real PSU blow up :D
  • Patrick u sure the antec blows the hot air into the case?
    Looking at the picture and the fan alignment it seems otherwise.

    I wish the Xigmatek was available here. All we have are expensive 750w and 850w versions.

    How come there's no Silverstone strider 400W...

    Im glad to see that the Antec 380D won. I have bought 5 for family and friends have been solid units to date.

    I don't think the Xigmatek PSU can keep the 650W load reliable or else Xigmatek would've rated it to be 650W

    Antec is awesome as always

    Is there no way to measure how stable the power on each rail is? Some PSU's Ive seen are very efficient but their rails drops below recommended power delivery meaning components are starved. Some even fluxuate which can damage components over time. The only other thing I feel is missing is capacitor aging. Is there any way to simulate 2-3 years use? Most PSU's I use in my main machine get handed down to another rig or sold. 2nd hand PSU's could be false economy!

    great video, Ive always wanted to see a PSU explode lol.
