The Chieftec APS-450S power supply has a maximum wattage output of 450W. This is a very low PSU capacity, and should only be used when powering a low power system. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.
The Chieftec APS-450S has an 80 Plus rating of Standard. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 80% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%. Standard is the lowest 80 Plus certificate available, but with 80% load efficiency minimums, the Chieftec APS-450S is still reliably efficient and is by no means a bad PSU choice. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 80.96%, 83.69%, and 83.55%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.
The dimensions of the Chieftec APS-450S (LxWxH) are 15.5cm x 15cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The Chieftec APS-450S is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.
The Chieftec APS-450S is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
