"Perfect *for me* :)"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I managed to get this on sale so it was only $70 and so far it has worked perfectly for me in my new gaming desktop. It's also nice and quiet

"Great value from a trusted brand."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Corsair have provided a solid power supply for the low cost market. Mine is reliably powering my low-to-mid end ghetto SteamOS machine.

"Excellent budget PSU"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought this PSU for my recently built PC. Quiet, has all the plugs you need for future proofing. Got it via price match, so thanks Mighty Ape! Well worth the money. But then it was on sale few days after I bought it which was a lot cheaper :( Still happy nonetheless!

"Very quiet PSU"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very quiet, hardly notice the fan when it's on.


VS550: the entry-level 240V power supply with high-end features.

The Corsair VS550 is a great choice if you’re building a home or office system with lower power demands, but you still demand the compatibility and reliability that Corsair is known for.

Real power.
The VS550 delivers a guaranteed 550 Watts of continuous power. With 0.99 Active Power Factor Correction, you get the peace of mind from knowing that your components are protected from uneven power delivery. And, a dedicated single +12V rail saves you from the hassle of balancing your components across multiple power cables.

Low noise, high efficiency.
The 120mm fan is thermally controlled, so it only spins at maximum speed when it’s pushed hard – and even at full load, it’s pretty quiet. Smart design features like this are why VS550 offers up to 85% efficiency. Your PC system will generate less heat, and you’ll enjoy lower energy bills.

Sophisticated design.
The black powder-coated enclosure and the black-sleeved cables give any system a polished look. You’re building a PC, not a battleship, and with the VS550 you can avoid that look of unpainted steel that you’ll find on so many entry-level power supplies.
Reliability you can count on.

VS550 is backed with a three-year warranty, and you get lifetime access to Corsair’s legendary technical support and customer service.
