Specifications and Packaging
The SilverStone SX600-G power supply is rated for a combined, continuous output power of up to 600 watts at 40°C operating temperature. The PSU includes universal AC line input (automatically adjusts to the AC line voltage) and active PFC, which makes the unit more environmentally friendly to the local power grid. The SX600-G features a single +12V rail that can deliver up to 50A (600W) of power and can operate under no load conditions.

Packaging and Parts
The SilverStone SX600-G SFX power supply arrived securely packed inside a standard retail box highlighting the unit's main features and specifications.
In addition to the power supply the package includes a power cord, mounting screws, a detailed User's Guide, ATX adapter bracket, and a bundle of modular cables. SilverStone continues to provide one of the most technically complete User Manuals of any PC power supply manufacturer.
The SX600-G PSU comes with five relatively short modular, flat ribbon-style cables.
Note: If you find one or more cables are too short for your particular build (especially if you are installing the SX600-G in a larger ATX enclosure) SilverStone offers a complete line of full-size modular cables that can be purchased separately. All of the sleeved cables in the PP06 and PP07 Series will work with the SX600-G SFX power supply.
I am building a mITX PC at
I am building a mITX PC at the moment, and liked the size, design and layout of a lot of Silverstone’s SUGO and MILO cases, but most take SFX PSUs. The price for a SFX PSU is hard to justify. I ended up with a SG08-LITE because it takes ATX PSUs, and got a Corsair CX600M for $54, vs the $130 Silverstone SX600-G.
That is a tradeoff with
That is a tradeoff with smaller builds, you get the convenience of a physically smaller computer and the advantages of that, but the build is often more involved, and the price has a premium. It sounds like you weighed those pros and cons and went with something that would fit your needs. That being said, if you didn’t need 600 watts, and most single GPU systems won’t even come close to that, the Silverstone ST55F-G 550 watt is $115, and the ST45SF 450 watt is $80. That is not a terrible price premium for a quality PSU.
Well i do own one of these
Well i do own one of these and i got to say:
Yes it is expensive but it uses high quality components and its the only 600W SFX PSU out there.
If other manufactures would build more SFX PSUs, Silverstone might drop prices.
The number of mini-ITX cases
The number of mini-ITX cases has increased lately, so maybe more companies will start making SFX power supplies. Nexus used to make short (125 mm) ATX power supplies, but not any more. I wish Seasonic would build an SFX power supply.
The new SX500-LG power supply, a 500 W SFX-L unit, has been posted on the Silverstone site, but it has not started to ship yet. Hopefully the extra 30 mm of length that allows the use of a 120 mm fan will result in a quieter power supply that is still very small.
Nice, this might allow me to
Nice, this might allow me to use the flex hard drive bays from my Caselabs M8 with my M3. Technically they fit, but with a normal size PSU, you can’t plug in the drives since they’re too close to the PSU.
I have this power supply and
I have this power supply and it works well but I do have a high pitch squeeling noise coming from it when the computer isn’t powered on. its a bit annoying.
Is this the 430w or 600w
Is this the 430w or 600w version? and when did you buy it?

I went for this over the 600w because it had the nice cables included.
Expensive power supply but not much competition. Modular was handy because it meant I could plug in to the motherboard first and also didn’t need to use the peripherals cable.

It’s a bit of a shame they have a nice black PSU, then include a boring plain metal adapter plate for ATX in it… looks nasty in a black case.
