    Default VP450P Lifespan

    How long will an Antec VP450P last with an Overclocked A10-7850k and a GTX 960?
    On average, obviously, anything can happen at any second

    There is no way to honestly make an estimation. All that can be said is that the unit would easily out last it's warranty.

    I would even hazard to say that the unit will last more than 5 years.

    Thanks for the answer, I can say this is enough information for me to feel safe for now, didn't even get the GPU yet, and I probably won't keep this PSU for a lot over 3 years from when I bought it if I buy the GPU, thanks!

    Hi, that depends on the actual average load you have and the temperature inside the case. (That goes for any PSU)

    I would conservatively say 3-5 years.
