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?

a dagger through my heart! https://frinkiac.com/caption/S09E02/612711

maybe splitting the rails to make the cleanest 12v?
