The PSU talks to your system over USB (internal USB 2.0/1.1 connector), interfacing with a neat little tool that lets you monitor temperature, power-draw, efficiency, and other parameters for each of its voltage domains; and lets you customize its fan speeds.

SilverStone SFX-L 700W PSU Pictured Up Close

Here are some of the first pictures up-close of the SX700-LPT, the first 700W PSU in the SFX-L form-factor, which is smaller than ATX, but slightly bigger than conventional SFX. This unit features fully modular cabling, a single +12V rail design, 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, and enough juice and straws for a gaming PC build with up to two high-end graphics cards. Many of SilverStone's upcoming compact cases, including those for the living room and the desk, could feature SFX-L bays. The company will include SFX-L to ATX adapters, so you can use it in conventional cases.

SilverStone Ready with a 700-Watt SFX-L Power Supply

SilverStone is flexing its engineering muscle, to woo the compact gaming PC community that the SFX-L form-factor of power supplies have arrived, and ready for multi-GPU. SFX-L is slightly bigger than SFX but significantly smaller than ATX. The company is ready with a 700-Watt PSU in the SFX-L form-factor. Part of the company's new line of SFX-L category with the SFX series, the lineup will be led by the 700W SX700-LPT, and possibly followed by lower wattage models in the future. The company pioneered this form-factor with the 500W SX500-LG, earlier this January. The new PSUs will likely have enough juice and straws for gaming PC builds with up to two graphics cards. The SX700-LPT will boast 80 Plus Platinum efficiency ratings and the company is expected to show them off at Computex 2015, this June

SilverStone Announces SX500-LG Power Supply

For small form factor enthusiasts, the standard SFX power supply form factor has excellent combination of size, power, and affordability. At 100mm deep, however, the standard SFX PSU is also limited in fan size to 80mm. While advances in engineering and components have made modern high-end SFX PSUs quieter than ever, there is still inherent limitation with 80mm fan's ability to dissipate heat at maximum loading conditions while maintaining satisfactory noise profile for users sensitive to higher-pitch sounds. With this in mind, SilverStone has released a "lengthened" variation of the SFX form factor called, SFX-L. With 30mm of added depth, a SFX-L power supply has enough room to fit a 120mm fan, thus its maximum load noise can be not only lower in intensity (via slower fan speed), but also lower in pitch (due to larger fan size).

The first model to debut in the SFX-L will be the SX500-LG, a 500W model that includes all features available from top of the line SFX SilverStone PSUs such as 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, modular flexible flat cables, and semi-fanless capability. An ATX adapter bracket is included as well to enable users to install this PSU into any small or even larger cases that do not have SFX mounting holes.

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.

SilverStone RAVEN RV05 PC Case Coming In July

The RAVEN RV05, the fifth edition in the exciting RAVEN enthusiasts chassis series continues the tradition of breaking and evolving the standards of desktop PC design. With a bold move that sees the removal of all 5.25" drive bays, the RAVEN team engineers again saw the opportunity to re-utilize the 90 degree rotated design. Previous RAVEN models with 90 degree layout often had to compromise on space efficiency due to fixed length of the motherboard in rotated orientation.

The elimination of 5.25" bays solves this issue naturally and enables RV05 to be even more balanced in terms of design than if the same were done to a traditionally-layout case. With most of the wasted space eliminated from RV05, engineers were thus able to better optimize the case for the most important performance-affecting components such as CPU and GPUs.

SilverStone Shows off Tundra TD04 "Pump-less" Liquid CPU Cooler

Among the swarm of all-in-one liquid CPU cooling solutions SilverStone, the one that stood out is its Tundra TD04. It's what the company claims is a "pump-less" liquid CPU cooler. It features a high-performance CPU water block that looks more like the DIY blocks you'd find in expensive liquid cooling setups; plumbed directly to the 240 x 120 mm radiator+reservoir assembly. We're not quite sure how circulation happens, or whether it's convectional of some sort. SilverStone claims the cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 200W.

SilverStone Tundra TD03 Slim and TD02 Slim CPU Coolers Pictured

SilverStone unveiled its Tundra TD03 Slim and TD02 Slim, an all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. The cooler takes advantage of higher air-flow and air-flow to noise ratio of the included fans, to slim down the radiator. Both coolers are based on a common base-block design that's innovated by SilverStone; featuring a silvery tubing. The TD03 Slim features a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator; while the TD02 Slim features a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. We also spied an unnamed cooler with a super-slim 140 mm x 140 mm radiator.

SilverStone Temjin TJ12 Monstrosity Detailed

SilverStone Temjin TJ12 was the elephant in the room at its Computex booth. This jumbo cubical case is huge - perhaps bigger than Lian Li PC-D600. Unlike the PC-D600, and Corsair's smaller Carbide Air 540, the TJ12 isn't a vertically-partitioned two-compartment case. Its motherboard tray (supports ATX, E-ATX, XL-ATX, and HPTX) is oriented along the plane of its front panel, with rear-I/O facing upwards. Add-on cards can easily be as long and tall as they make them. At the bottom of the case, are four large fans, with a mesh, onto which you can latch on radiators of all shapes and sizes. The drive cage and PSU bay are suspended along a sloping panel, in a way that they don't obstruct anything near the motherboard tray. The actual "front-panel" is located at the top. So the TJ12 is essentially a case you put on your floor. and access its goods from the top.

SilverStone Unveils White Milo ML07 Chassis

SilverStone rolled out a sexy matte-white variant of its Milo ML07 compact chassis, pictured below, next to its standard sibling. The case features mostly matte-white surfaces, with a black highlight running along. Under its skin, the ML07 is essentially a Raven RVZ01, a mini-ITX chassis with room for an SFX power supply, a modern 33 cm long graphics card using PCIe risers (a GTX TITAN Black should fit just fine), leaving you still with room for a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator, a slot-in slimline optical drive, a 3.5-inch internal bay, and three 2.5-inch internal bays. Ventilation includes a 120 mm vent over the motherboard tray, and two 120 mm vents at the bottom.

SilverStone Unveils a 600W, Fully-modular SFX Power Supply

SilverStone may have solved the single biggest hiccup for compact gaming PC builders, that of quality, high-wattage PSUs in the SFX form-factor, to drive high-end graphics cards, with the SX600-G power supply. Built in the SFX form-factor, this unit can supply 600 Watts of power, letting you drive high-end graphics cards, 2-way multi-GPU configurations using performance-segment ones, and perhaps even gluttonous ones such as the GTX TITAN-Z (NVIDIA rates its typical power consumption at 375W). The unit features a single 50A +12V rail design, and boasts of 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating. Other features include active PFC, and most common protection mechanisms. The best part? It features 100% modular cabling, so you can keep out cables you don't need from your compact build.

SilverStone Milo ML07 Now Available

SilverStone launched the Milo ML07 slim mini-ITX chassis, with room for conventional (full-height, double-slot) graphics cards. Measuring 382 mm x 350 mm x 105 mm (WxDxH), it weighs about 3.71 kg. The ML07 chassis may look like something to build a media PC around, but it can actually hold gaming-grade hardware. The case features two add-on slots bays along the plane of the motherboard tray, featuring a PCI-Express x16 riser. There's enough room for full-height, double-slot graphics cards as long as 330 mm. That's enough to squeeze in a GeForce GTX TITAN Black (which is 266 mm long), all that's left would be finding a PSU in the SFX form-factor, which can safely power it. The motherboard tray seats conventional mini-ITX boards. Its storage area includes room for a slot-loading slimline optical drive, a 3.5-inch internal bay, and three 2.5-inch internal bays. Ventilation includes a 120 mm vent over the motherboard tray, and two 120 mm vents at the bottom, which should let you squeeze in a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. Front connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports (standard header), and HDA front-panel jacks.
