    Arrow Silverstone ST45SF v3 Review

    In 2017, you'd think more attention would have been paid to the small form factor market by now. These builds have become more and more popular, yet the power supply side of things remains somewhat overlooked. While some of the competition has stepped up to the plate and added solid units to the SFX market space, this is still an area somewhat dominated by Silverstone, at least when it comes to actual decent options with decent value. Today, we're going to check out the newest version, 3.0, of the SF45SF, a 450 watt 80 Plus Bronze entry on the bargain side of things. We saw what the original version was like way back in 2010, so it will be interesting to see what's changed.

    In paragraph 3, first sentence, it says that this PSU is a Gold Rated PSU. It is really Bronze.

    It says the Corsair SF450 is Gold, not this one.

    Not bad. I was looking for a proper review for a couple months. It has its place. Good job.

    PC Per did a review of it and it's 300w little brother last November. Paul at HardOCP also got his review up in December.

    They're both worth a read if you have a few spare moments. Simliar results between all three though. Definitely shows that even as a "bronze" product it actually is a pretty decent contender in the SFX market.

    Thanks for another great review. I am also quite pleased that in your scope shots you have the volt scale you use, but how about showing the time domain too?

    I thought I'd never be asked. That would actually save me some time during reconfiguration for overshoot transient testing.
