Corsair VS450 Power Supply (CP-9020009)

Maybe Corsair needs to clarify some contradictory information.

Stumbled upon the VS450 PSU and upon further investigation found some gross errors in the technical specifications.

Firstly on the Corsair site http://www.corsair.com/builder-series-vs450-450-watt-high-performance-power-supply.html

The technical specs state a single 12V rail supply. This is listed as 22A (360W) :confused: 360W on the 12V rail = 30A. 22A on the 12V rail = 264W One of the values needs correction.

Then some further searching resulted in the following:

Same PSU, same model number and now we have a dual rail supply with 21A and 18A respectively on the 2 12V rails.

Are these two different products ? If so, why the same model number ?

 

The Corsair site states clearly

And, a dedicated single +12V rail saves you from the hassle of balancing your components across multiple power cables.

 

Would like some clarification as I am considering this one for a lower end PC.

I am sorry but this PSU is no longer in production and I doubt we would be able to update that information. However the 12 Volt rail in total will produce 360 watts and the EPS 12 Volt and PCI-E both use 12 Volt power but the rating on the label is just for the PCI-E cables.

Based on your info, you may as well close this thread.

I think you missed half my question ?

http://www.corsair.com/builder-serie...er-supply.html the official Corsair site states

And, a dedicated single +12V rail saves you from the hassle of balancing your components across multiple power cables.

That means a single 12V rail. Your response seems to indicate that the product in this link was incorrectly advertised as a single rail 12V PSU.

Your response leads me to believe that the non Corsair link is correct, and that it is/was indeed a dual rail 12V PSU.

I shall stay clear of it, as my local supplier has them but the label on the side still shows a single 12V rail, same as your site. :confused:

They are a single rail PSU Look at the chart. The 12v+ is rated for 360w. Then you add the 3.3. and 5w rails at 120w. the total is roughly 450w total.

 

If it were a multi rail PSU the 360w 12v+ would be split into two equal rails at 180v a piece..

 

Ignore the -12. that is not a "rail"

All interesting comments. 360W on the 12V rail means 30A.

Yet there is no explanation as to the following. Which one is the real McCoy.?

Same part number.

The model CMPSU-450VX has been discontinued and is no longer available from us. Now that is not to say that some resellers may still have inventory and if so would still be a viable product just we are not manufacturing that model any more.

 

However This model is a Europe/Asian only version that was made for Europe and Asia Only according to the label and I would not have any information on this unit other than that. It will only support 230-220 VAC it will not run at 110 Volts so it was not sold in Western Block Countries.
