Gigabyte P450B Power Supply Review

Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Gigabyte P450B Power Supply. Now the title gives it away and this is indeed a 450 watt power supply. For us serious gamers this is not even close to the power we need to power those graphics cards. But there is still the need for a power supply of this size if you are doing a simple build. I actually like that there are still power supplies being made at this rating. Honestly there is no need to go way over your power supply needs when building a computer. You can put that money towards parts that will increase the performance. No need to have idle power sitting around. Put it towards some better RAM or something like that. So if you are in the need for a power supply of this size then Gigabyte has you covered and is still making them at this wattage!

Empower your computer with the GP-P450B 450W 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply from Gigabyte. Featuring a single +12V rail, this 450W PSU follows the Intel ATX 12V v2.31 form factor. A 120mm hydraulic bearing fan provides ample cooling and boasts a lifespan of more than four years. In addition to motherboard and CPU connectors, the GP-P450B also provides two PCIe and six SATA connectors, as well as three 4-pin peripheral connectors and a 4-pin floppy connector. Rated 80 PLUS Bronze, the Gigabyte GP-P450B delivers up to 85% efficiency and uses flat cables.

I would like to thank Gigabyte for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what Gigabyte has to say about themselves on their website:
