XFX Pro Series 450w and 550w Power Supply Review

XFX packaging is always very stylish and the Pro 450W box uses identical artwork to other units in this range.

Inside are 4 mounting screws and two power cables, one for the European market and the other for the UK market. They also supply a well written manual with a basic overview of the 450w and 550w power supplies.

The supply is encased in soft foam for added shipping protection. As this is not a modular design all the cables emerge from the chassis and are wrapped with a heavy duty cable tie.

The XFX Pro 450W power supply is attractively designed with the name of the product on the sides and a large 120mm fan which takes centerstage at the top. The XFX paintwork is a matt finish which doesn’t mark easily and maintains a clean looking appearance, even after rough handling.

The front of the supply is fully vented to aid with cooling and to the left is a power switch, XFX badge and power connector socket.

It can deliver 34A to the +12V rail which is quite impressive, especially considering the modest output.

For a model at this specific power output there is more than enough connectivity to sate audience demands. The cables are fully sleeved and high quality.
