I find the SFX standrad pretty strange, but some companies like Silverstone are trying really hard to push it forward. I welcome this one as well. The more, the cheaper :D. I ain't paying 50-80 euros for SS version anyway :).

Had to actually look up what a Berg connector was. Couldn't they have just said floppy power? o_O

Man that sends me way-back... The inclusion of the "floppy connector" is so late 80's- early 90's. PSU's really need to dump that, if I had a need for one today there's just a molex to floppy adapter.

Yea, while not offering an efficiency compliance/label/approval, and some modular at this stage comes across like serious "ho-hum" even if they're just starting to put their toe in the SFX waters.
