SilverStone Readies SX500-LG PSU in the SFX-L Form-Factor

SilverStone's latest addition to its space-efficient SFX-L form-factor PSU lineup, is the 500-Watt SX500-LG. This fully-modular PSU boasts of 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating, and enough cabling to power a gaming desktop, with a single high-end graphics card. It features a single +12V rail design, APFC, and most modern protection mechanisms. A 120 mm fan is used, to keep it cool. Cabling includes two 6+2 pin PCIe, a 4+4 pin EPS, 24-pin ATX, three SATA, two Molex, and one Berg. SilverStone is expected to launch this PSU later this month.

So I'm too lazy to look up SFX form factor specs or standards, but doesn't having a 120mm fan make this pretty pointless as an SFX PSU? What case that uses a SFX PSU would be compatible with this PSU without blocking critical areas in the case?

This isn't SFX but SFX-L.

SFX: 100×125×63.5 mm

SFX-L: 130×125×63.5 mm



EDIT: BTW, aren't these the re-called SX600Gs that overheated under constant high load? Would be interesting to know if that's the case.

Silverstone website has correctly listed it as Sfx-L form factor in specifications. Even I am interested in review of this unit as its large enough for a 120mm cooling fan yet small enough for mini itx cases to accomodate. Also with a 500W cpapcity it can easily handle single 980/970 based gaming rig.

You may be thinking of the Dirac Tesla Cube which have a suspicious provenance.
