    Super Flower PSU - Conclusion


    (Page 6 of 6 )

    Upon receiving this PSU I was a little hesitant. With four fans, the name “Super Flower,” and the relatively cheap price, I didn’t expect it to do as well as it did. I tested it along side a brand new Antec, one of the better known companies, and it not only kept up, it performed better.

    There are a few downsides, though. There are no SATA power connectors. I run a SATA hard drive, and they are slowly taking over the market. It would have been nice to see a few, but this issue was nothing a little adapter couldn’t fix.

    The four fans on turbo mode can sound very loud. You can set them to low and get the same results on these tests. With a retail price of $39.99, it is half the cost of the Antec, and provides same performance. If you need a PSU, I would buy this one. I am giving the Super-Flower Silent TT-450SS the DevHardware Recommended award. I have a brand new Antec, and this Super-Flower -- but the Super-Flower is running my computer.

    Pros

    • Cheap
    • Adjustable fans
    • Great quality
    • Holds its own against Antec

    Cons

    • No SATA connectors
    • Four fans at turbo is loud
