    If they get it out around 45 quid, should sell well.

    biggest problem is if you spent 20-25 more you enter into a whole new class of PSU.

    Still saving up for a corsair 850w, ill pass on this one, but good for those who want a basic PSU for a basic system.

    I’m sure not everyone reading these needs a 1500w psu, seems pretty good low cost way to build a media system

    RS-450-ACAA-D3 = Enhance because of the D by Coolermaster.
    A= AcBel
    D = Enhance
    E = Seventeam
    J = FSP

    Transformer markings also indicate that it’s an Enhance built unit.
