The price is a little high.
I'm not sure I agree with such high ratings of some of the Corsair units, with as many failures as they apparently experience within the first year. It also doesn't bode well for the poor capacitors in this Silverstone either. So far though, at this level, there is no other choice.
 
The review was perfect this time, Aris. My only nitpick is the graphs are hard to read.

Well done.

As far as the PSU itself, I was turned off by the 40C max operating temp fan kicks up at 45... bah... If they would have used better caps then temp could easily been rated for 50C.

Nice to see that manufacturers are starting to take small form factor builds seriously. I especially like the direction that Silverstone is going in. First the RVZ02B now high quality SFF power supplies. Wave of the future?
 
This is a wonderful power supply, if you aren't pushing it altogether too hard.

@David Dewis, go look at the Sandia Cooler. When you're done lusting after that, look at the Id-cooling Is-vc45 Vapor Chamber CPU Cooler... which you can buy right now and use to overclock an i5 in the new Raven just fine. I've got my media PC in an RVZ01 with a Pentium anniversary edition overclocked to heck, and it does just fine. (I can't wait for the RVZ02 to put my gaming rig in and run watercooling out the back.)
 
That being said. Tom's. What are you doing.

Silverstone just released the SX500-LG, which is a very slightly longer (130mm) SFX-profile power supply that fits a 120mm fan on top, instead of a dinky, noisy 80mm fan. That's the power supply that I want to see a review of!

I will ask for the SX-500LG, however I have many samples to process till its turn comes to hit the test bench. Unfortunately a full PSU review needs lots of time and I won't do rushed reviews.

I converted my i7 920 (ATX Mobo) and 7970 to an SFF case 12"x17"x4" last year and have been powering it off of Silverstone's previous SFX450 - I know I'm pushing the power supply long and hard (and when gaming and taxing the CPU and GPU the PSU fan also really spins up).

Any way to compare/contrast the SFX450 vs the 600? I know its an extra $130 but I'm tempted to upgrade the PSU in the next 6 months just because I know I'm taxing it by running it so hard...

@Geoff C

You can read the review of the SFX450 below. It was made with the same equipment so the results are comparable.

I have this PSU in an NCase M1 V2. I've never experienced and issue with it and to me it's dead silent. It's a little on the pricey side but for my case it was really the only option for building as high performance ITX build with the NCase.
