    SF series.

    Apparently one of the models will include a SF500, maybe new version, maybe a typo.

    Right, and the SF400 is a 50°C rated SF450.

    So are they different or not? I mean the PSUs.

    No, same design / topology.

    They are just rated slightly higher in terms of temperature (50C vs 40C) but have a reduction in output power at that level (600w down to 500w and 450w down to 400w.)

    Sorry Tator, I wasn't clear: even if they're rated 50W less/10°C higher, are those exactly the same units as before, right? I mean, you (royal you) can't say a PSU to not push power, unless some internals are changed.
    Best, Luca

    It's the same PSU.

    It's not "throttled" to only put out a lower power. It's just labeled as to what it can put out at 50°C.
