If you are on the market for a new computer power supply then you will be hard pressed to match the quality and price of the Antec VP450. It is part of a range that has been designed specifically to give you everything you might possibly need in a power supply at a fraction of the price of other models. Interested? Then be sure to keep reading our antecvp 450 review.


So what gives the VP450 the bang for its low buck? Here are the cables and features that this minimalist black box comes with:

– A main motherboard cable with 20/24-pin connector

– A six-pin connector cable for video cards

– Three SATA power connectors

– One standard peripheral power connector

– A floppy disk drive connector

– A minimalist black box design that will complement any setup

– A 120mm cooling fan


The VP450 has a range of features that will entice users looking to update their power supply, here are some of the most notable ones:

Entry-level Power Solution 

If you want a simple power supply without the glitz, glamour and price tag of other models then this is the choice for you. The VP450 is cheap at half the price and an outstanding deal that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Don’t Let ‘Entry-Level’ Deter You

Now we know ‘entry-level’ sounds basic and unattractive but the VP450 has been crafted to give a quality and performance to rival all other power supplies. Its dual +12V rails ensure that the user is getting stable power and quality heavy-duty circuitry protection for safety from short-circuiting and over current/voltages.

Quiet Performance

The addition of a 120mm fan provides the system with quiet cooling and this keeps the system’s temperature down and safe.

Suitable For All

No matter the needs of your business or home computer, the VP450 is capable of providing a top quality power solution to any user’s needs. If you are looking for a basic but reliable model then this is the one for you.

Antec’s 2-year guarantee

It’s likely that you will never have to use Antec’s 2-year product quality warranty but it is a nice feature to have just in case.


To say there are downsides to the VP450 would be unfair, Antec have designed a model that gives users a high level of performance at a tiny price and is a great entry-level power supply that can be used by anyone. Of course it doesn’t have some of the more glamorous features that might attract a user to other models but then this means the price doesn’t sky rocket either. With that said here are a few of the things you won’t find in the VP450:

– No PFC circuit

– No 80 Plus certification


If you don’t know what you are after in a computer power supply and you are on a budget then you will be hard pressed to find better value for money than with the VP450. The model is suitable for pretty much anyone’s needs and won’t give you the additional features that some power supplies have but won’t leave you wanting either. It truly is a product that gives you great quality for a low price and these kinds of products don’t come often these days.
