XFX have rounded out their Pro Series with two very capable units at the lower end of the price spectrum. Both 450W and 550W supplies are well designed with fantastic build quality. We don’t always comment on the packaging of a product, but XFX really excel at attracting the eye within a store environment.
Technically, both supplies have stable regulation and cope well with varying loads, as our crossloading results verify. Ripple results are equally impressive and efficiency levels are also very good, exceeding the 80 Plus Bronze certification they have achieved. Noise emissions are reasonably good with the large ADDA fans keeping the temperatures well within check, even under high continual loads.
As we said last time, this series from XFX is not released to break any performance records, but they are a well priced range of supplies with good internal design and high reliability. UK pricing has not yet been confirmed with us, however as the 650W unit was retailing for £65 you should expect to see the 550W for around £55 and the 450W for £45 or less.
KitGuru says: Quality products at great prices, the Pro Series has been a great success for XFX.
