    Arrow Corsair SF600 Review

    The world of the small form factor PC has gone rather neglected over the years when it comes to decent power supplies in the form factors required for these tiny cases. For too many years now, we either had our choice between one good brand with decent but underpowered stuff or total overrated junk. It was much like the early days of the ATX power supply, actually. Then, Silverstone came along and offered us a way to get a decent amount of power into a little bit of space. That was a vast improvement, but still we were dealing with only one decent company among a sea of junk. Well, folks, all that changes right now. Corsair has decided to jump on board and actually compete. The SF600 promises a boatload of performance in exactly the same amount of space as Silverstone's unit. Let's see what this upstart of a unit can do.

    If you buy from Corsair's website directly, they offer a free SFX to ATX mounting bracket with the purchase.

    My respect for Corsair has increased lately, with their AX, AXi, RMx, and HXi series, and now this - the new king of SFX. Waiting for their lower watt Titanium series, which is surely coming, to compete with Seasonic's Prime series (if they would ever make it to retail). Come to think of it, Seasonic could be the OEM on their next Titanium series, since CWT may not be good enough and Flextronics may not be cheap enough.

    Corsair prefers CWT, Great Wall, Flextronics or many other OEM's over Seasonic because Seasonic doesn't let them change anything. Seasonic just sells standard platforms to manufactures and only allows a fan change or some other really small changes, but almost nothing on the PCB it self. All new Corsair PSU's have custom designs, don't think they're gonna switch back to a standard platform from OEM x. And I like that to, the new CXM, RMx, RMi, HXi , AXi and this new SF series are all great PSU's based on custom designs.

    Yeah, I've been noticing that a fair bit.

    Are they commissioned designs or are they all in-house designs with farmed out manufacturing?

    Care to weigh in on this Jonny?

    Albeit, since the early announce of that Prime lineup some months ago, I got the feeling there's something going on between Corsair and Seasonic.

    Why, oh why would you use the PS229 at all?!

    And what's the chip behind that 50V capacitor on the modular PCB?
