There is one thing that almost all power supplies do well these days: looks. For some power supplies, that turns out to be the only thing that is right. Many of these power supplies are plagued with weak rails, cheap components, and on top of that they are often cheap. In short, they make an attractive, but deceptive buy for consumers. There are a few companies out there whose power supplies do not follow these characteristics. Amongst these companies are big names like OCZ, Fortron, Antec, PC Power & Cooling, and SilverStone Technology. Today in our testing labs we have the Cooler Master Real Power 450W. Will it fall under the category of flashy failures? Or will it be able to join the ranks of the elite?

Features:

· Fully supports the newest Intel standard ATX 12V Version 2.0
· Super silent operation with intelligent fan speed control (<20 dBA)
· Power consumption management by human computer interface
· Support dual +12V, and +12V outputs for high power usage
· Green power design to meet energy star and blue angle requirements
· More than 75% efficiency at typical load operation
· Higher reliability (MTBF > 100,000 hours)
· QVP / OCP / OTP / OLP / Short Protection
· Active power factor correction (PF > .99)
· Real power capacity satisfy hi-end system operation

The packaging for the Real Power 450W was nicely printed and the construction was very sturdy. The box came in good condition and the items inside were not damaged in any way. Included in the package were mounting screws, a Human Computer Interface (HCI), power cord, and the Real Power 450 power supply. The Human Computer Interface is used for monitoring total power consumption of the computer system from an attractive panel that can be installed into an external 3.5" drive bay.
