Tried to find the Force 450W around, but couldn't, so it seems like your local brand
Its this one, isnt it?

I wanted to read Ampers ( especially for the 3.3V ) so I would try to find an equivalent around, but I can not find specification anywhere. Can you please supply the Ampers for 3.3, 5 and 12 Volts from your PSU?

That means it's running very ineffective, it "burns" electric power internally. Some even power off when they do not get their minimum load. Your Falcon needs less than 90 Wattsm but the power supply takes more than 200 Watt from the wall connector. It will produce more than 110 Watts of heat. A PicoATX PSU with a 120W costs (in ebay) about 40 eurodollars inclusive the external 12V adapter.
Are you sure about it? I have got a wattmeter yesterday and I'm testing whatever I find
