be quiet! Introduces the SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 PSUs

be quiet!, market leader of power supplies in Germany for eight consecutive years, announces the new SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 power supplies, which are suited for high-performance yet compact systems because of the optimized technology based on two strong 12-volt-rails. The German market leader sets great value upon a high efficiency: The TFX Power 2 reaches up to 91 percent, which conforms the 80PLUS Gold standard. In addition be quiet! significantly improved the cooling performance compared to the successful predecessor models.

Small form factor for space-saving systems
The latest power supplies from be quiet! conform the space-saving SFX and TFX format and efficiently provide power for high-performance systems. Despite the small dimensions the models SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 are equipped with sleeved cables in a length of 35 to 50 (SFX) or to 65 centimeters (TFX) and with more than enough ports to power a modern Mini-ITX system. This includes the implementation of a graphics card, due to the fact, that compact power supplies from be quiet! have a 6+2 pin PCIe connector (6 pin via Adapter for TFX) - natively or via adapter. With this features it is an easy job to build a potent Haswell-based Mini-PC with dedicated GPU.

Excellent efficiency
Both PSU series are characterized by a particularly high efficiency, which is up to 89 percent and therefore conforms the 80PLUS Bronze standard. A second special version of the TFX Power 2 reaches up to 91 percent and is 80PLUS Gold certified. Thanks to the high efficiency be quiet! is able to realize a extremely silent and effective cooling, which is ensured by a high-quality, temperature-controlled 80 millimeter fan.

Two powerful 12-volt rails
Especially because the models SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 provide support for graphics cards, be quiet! relies on a stable 12-volt dual-rail design, which provides rock solid performance values. Therefore these power supplies are a great choice for office- and web-clients, but are just as well suitable for demanding application such as HTPCs with gaming suitability.

Latest safety- and energy-standards
The new small form factor power supplies from be quiet! are equipped with all major safety standards such as OCP, OVP, UVP, SCP and OPP. They also support the C6 and C7 stand-by modes for the latest generation of Intel processors. In addition TFX Power 2 and SFX Power 2 fulfill the newest European regulations ErP 2014.

The TXF Power 2 is available in two versions: with 80PLUS Bronze or Gold certificate and an output of 300 watts each. The suggested retail price incl. VAT is 55 respectively 67 Euro. Interested buyers are able to choose also between two models of the SFX Power 2 series: the 300 watt version costs 55 Euro, while the 400 watt model will be offered for a price of 67 Euro.

If you consider that both products are low volume products and that it's hard to get quality SFX and TFX power supplies, well, then it looks to me like it's a fair asking price.

For USA (at newegg), Silverstone has a 450W sfx gold that has an adapter plate that allows it to mount in a regular atx case. It's modular but the cables are short (as intended for small cases). Jonny Guru approved. Newegg has the latest version with the updated fan controller than makes it quiet (so ignore the "loud" comments about the previous revision.)

The fan is still loud thats why me and others have changed them out for the noise blocker fan also doesn't change the buzzing sound coming out of the unit.

Huh, mine is really really quiet and no buzzing. It's about 3 feet away in a Prodigy case here. Are you sure you have the latest rev?
