Over the past few years we have really seen the Small Form Factor market grow, especially when it comes to small easy to transport gaming PCs, or what we call LAN Rigs. Early in 2013 I upgraded our Lunchbox 2 by upgrading the cooling and opening up room for airflow with a new SFX power supply from Silverstone. Later when I built Lunchbox 3 I used the same model of power supply. Why didn’t I change it up? Well not only did the first 450 watt SFX power supply perform reliably for me, but also frankly there just wasn’t any other competition. Silverstone had the highest wattage in the form factor not to mention the only SFX power supply with modular cabling. Well today we have the chance to check out the new top dog in SFX power supplies, Silverstone’s 600W SST-SX600-G.

LanOC Reviews only covers the features of power supplies due to not having the equipment to test them up to our standards. Because of this you will not see a performance section, a final verdict, or awards. Therefore we prefer to call this a preview rather than a review. Thank you for understanding; we keep our standard to the absolute highest for you, our reader.

yeah the 450w version we covered previously was the older Bronze rated version, the gold model I think came out along side of this 600 watt model

Good read. I would like to add/correct something in your article. The 450W version also carries a Gold rating. There are 2 different 450W models. One is the ST45SF-G which is what I have and it is a Gold. The less expensive ST45SF is also a 450W, but is only a 80+ Bronze. BTW, I have been running my PSU since June of 2013 and it has been a solid unit with not one issue. I certainly will be looking at buying the new 600W if I need another SFX PSU.
