FSP's Dagger Line of SFX PSUs Now Available - 500 W, 600 W, 80+ Gold

Several months have passed since the original announcement, but FSP's Dagger line of SFX PSUs are now finally seeing the light of day. These are fully modular, highly efficient (80+ Gold), small form-factor PSUs, which look to deliver outstanding power quality to your small form factor experiments. The Dagger's platform uses DC-DC converters for the generation of the minor rails, and FSP announces the usage of Japanese electrolytic capacitors. Connector-wise, the Dagger PSUs deliver 1x EPS; 2x PCIe; 5x SATA, 2x Peripheral, and 1x Berg connectors, whose numbers are reasonable for a SFX PSU.

Dimension-wise, the Dagger PSUs come in at 125 mm (W) x 63.5 mm (H) x 110 mm (D), and both models are cooled by a 80 mm Dual Ball-Bearing Fan. The Dagger line of SFX PSUs will be embodied, at least at first, by the Dagger SDA500 ($99) and Dagger SDA600 ($109), both carrying 5-year warranties.

Bonus points if you knew what "1x Berg connectors" was without having to actually look it up! (Like I did, no one calls them that, jeesh. :laugh: )

I guess you don't read Johnny Guru's excellent power supply reviews, they hate the now useless floppy drive power connector, and score points against it if it's hard-wired into a cable (as opposed to a separate adapter). And yes, they call them Berg connectors...

Can anyone explain me why some psu manufacturers go 18+10pin instead of 24pin?

maybe splitting the rails to make the cleanest 12v?

Because 24 pins would be less then the current 28 and not enough. ;)
