    Default SilverStone SX650-G PSU Review @ Tom's Hardware,5692.html

    The SX650-G is a small form factor power supply that crams tons of capacity into its SFX chassis. SilverStone has lots of experience building compact, powerful PSUs, and this particular model wields four PCIe connectors able to support two high-end graphics cards. Despite its diminutive dimensions, the SX650-G sports a 92mm fan, which is as large as an SFX enclosure accommodates. This keeps it as quiet as possible under light and moderate loads. Of course, once you really tax the SX650-G, its fan has to spin up to keep the internals cool. At that point, it gets pretty loud.

    A three-year warranty is surprisingly short compared to the increasingly long guarantees we're used to seeing. The SX650-G's main competitor, Corsair's SF600, boasts a seven-year warranty. Although that PSU is rated for 50W-lower capacity, it serves up high performance and a semi-passive mode for noise-free operation under light loads. The SF600's most glaring weakness next to the SX650-G are its two PCIe connectors. By doubling that number, SilverStone better caters to enthusiast-oriented hardware configurations.
