SFX power supplies?

Post by silentbobbo » Mon Sep 26, 2016 12:25 pm

The smaller SFX power supplies are coming back, maybe because it can save some precious centimeters in small cases while still delivering a lot of power. Silverstone, Corsair and many other high-profiles manufactures sell SFX PSUs. Some of them are even "semi fanless" and all of them say they are "silent". :lol:

Will SPCR review this new wave of SFX PSUs?

I guess no.

At least, after 2012 (when there were 9 PSU reviews) SPCR neglected PSUs testing (0 PSUs tested in 2016, 0 PSUs in 2015, 1 PSUs in 2014, 1 PSUs in 2013): I think Mike and Lawrence are no more interested in that wearying task.

Support SPCR, use these links when you buy: NCIX, Amazon and Newegg

Would like to see this, as well; even if they just tested the noise levels. I only need ~200W but I'm still using my Rosewill SilentNight because I've not read good things about these new higher power SFX PSUs.
