Default vantec delta's, will my PS handle them?

I have a 450watt PSU wilth 23 watts on the 12V rail. I am think of getting a couple of vantec delta's (220CFM) for my case.

Can my PSU handle it?

well sorry this sounds so stupid. I ask this because of how much more power these draw then a typical fan. and with all my other compenets I wanted to know if I will be under powering my pc with these new fans.

as far as i know it should be fine, they do draw a lot more power than a typical fan but i think it is still fairly insignificant. just don't attach them to your motherboard because the circuitry relating to the fan power outputs isn't designed to draw as much current as they will

they are regular fans just 2 of them. One is a little slower than the other. There will be 2 power connections with them, just do not connect then to the mobo headers. Connect them to the CD-Rom power supply wires.

yep, but do you really want to spend that much money for a fan?

There are others for a lot less

O I dunno just the weather around here is scorching and my comp. is running really hot. Just was weighing my options.

I have also been looking at some variable speed 110 CFM fans on newegg for $15 apiece

I use the silverstones sometimes, they are very good fans. Even if its hot a fast fan just pushes hot air...
So for all the noise(a LOT of noise) the Delta is not worth it.

And for that money(2 deltas are $100)you could start thinking about Water Cooling...

Here is a excellent starter kit,(using top of the line componants)
