    SilverStone rolled out its newest power supply for small form factor (SFF) cases, the ST45SF SFX Form Factor PSU. This PSU in its limited form measuring 125 mm (W) × 63.5 mm(H) × 100 mm(D), can give out 450W of continuous power. It has a single +12V rail design, with a single 36A rail. It boasts of 80 Plus Bronze certification, it has an efficiency of 82% to 85%. It offers most standard power connectors, including 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS (CPU power), one 6+2 pin PCI-Express, one 6-pin PCI-Express, three SATA power, two Molex and one Floppy power. It packs active PFC, over/under-voltage/current protection. The unit is cooled by an 80 mm fan, that has a minimum noise output rated at 18 dBA. The PSU supports SFX form-factor cases out of the box, but also includes an SFX to ATX bracket that lets you use it in ATX/M-ATX cases. It is priced around 60 EUR.

    You could totally build a sleeper 2000s era eMachines computer with this, if you are cheap and don't want to buy a small case. :laugh:

    The original SFX power supplies in those (like the 533MHz Celeron eMachines) only had 2 amps on the 12v rail. :eek:

    Yeah, it's not a modular psu, but I can see it coming out real soon.. Silverstone likes to make "3" or more of everything.

    That case is terrible, it's a rebranded APEX MI-100, has terrible cooling even for atom processors.

    Pretty expensive too considering an SG05 is $20 more

    $65 on newegg.

    From a review:

    I like how the Element Q looks vs the APEX MI-100 :wtf:

    I have a 120mm fan on the side, it's still pretty hot with only an atom!

    It's a d945gclf board

    Chip Temp: +42.0°C
    CPU Temp: +63.0°C
    Sys Temp: +52.0°C

    It's pretty much idle as it's a file server but as you can see it's not good.

    pic is with an 80mm fan that was replaced by a Cooler Master fan.
