    Japanese PC hardware maker Dirac launched its Tesla Cube line of high-wattage PSUs in the SFX form-factor. The series includes 550W and 650W models, which should splash your build with enough juice to run single high-end or two performance-segment graphics cards. The two feature single +12V rail designs, efficiency that meets 80 Plus Gold standards, and a fully modular cabling design. The two also come with adapters that let you install them on standard ATX cases. Cables for both models include 24-pin ATX, 4+4 pin EPS, two 6+2 pin PCIe, six SATA, and one Berg. The 650W Tesla Cube displaces Silverstone's SX600-G in being the most powerful SFX power supply. Silverstone's unit was showed off at Computex 2014, and is headed for launch later this month.

    Why can't they just make a 350W Bronze SFX PSU that's modular ;-;

    Why would you need 350W to be modular? You're going to have the 24pin, the 4/8pin and the molex and sata power cables being used, so what's left to be modular and not used?

    Not quite SFX: (W)125mm-(D)120mm-(H)63.5mm (Source: http://www.dirac.co.jp/tesla-cube-sfx-series/)

    Better wattage, but also larger. SX600-G still the most powerful within SFX specs; obviously, if you can afford the extra mm, then great, but depending on your build, thinking this is actually SFX could get you into trouble.

    These are 25mm wider than the actual SFX specs (SFX = 100w x 125d x 63.5h). Even assuming that the screw holes line up in a standard SFX case, you'd have to make sure your case could handle the inch or so increase in width. Personally I don't think the form factor is adequate for so much power and heat, you have to have very loud fans to cool a high-end graphics card and CPU in such a small case, water cooled or not. Until the cooling technology is smaller and more efficient (and quieter), high-powered SFF builds will always be a compromise. I prefer relatively low-powered components for mini-ITX builds, where heat is not such an issue. I agree with Debat0r, a modular 350w SFX would be a lot more useful to the average builder.
