Codegen P-Case 460W - Low Price, Poor Qualityby Martin Kaffei on April 27, 2012 8:30 AM EST
Codegen P-Case 460W
Codegen is a well known brand for inexpensive power supplies. The P-Case 460W has passive PFC (no universal AC input) and no finish since most customers simply don't care how a PSU like this looks like. In addition there is no sleeving for the cables. The delivery contents of the case/PSU bundle include a power cord and all necessary screws. You'll note that there's no 80 Plus certification on this one, which isn't too surprising considering the target market. Read on to find out if this PSU is still recommendable.
The casing is very simple and grey with a length of just 14 cm. According to the label this PSU has a single +12V output rated at 25A, which is not much. +3.3V and +5V are specified at 26A and 20A. Those outputs have no combined power rating, which is quite bad for our calculation but we tried to focus on the smaller rails since they are stronger. The total power is 460W.
