SilverStone has expanded their lineup of small form-factor power supplies with new, high-power SFX models and a powerful new compact 140 mm ATX PSU.

First we have the updated SFX lineup for 2016, featuring a higher power 80 Plus Gold rated 650W standard model and a 700W SFX-L unit. All standard SFX models now feature larger 92 mm fans (up from 80 mm) for quieter operation. Moving up to the longer SFX-L form-factor, with their 80 Plus Platinum rated 700W power supply SilverStone has reached a new high for power density, and the new SFX-L power supply also features fully modular cables and a quiet 120 mm fan.

They’re hedging. They want
They’re hedging. They want to be sure that if someone goes and fries their motherboard by hooking a PCI-e 8-pin to the 8-pin EPS (or fries their GPU by hooking an 8-pin EPS to the GPU’s power port), they can place the blame (rightfully) on the user – “See how easy we made it for people? We even color-coded the plugs! This is all you, not us, man.”
It would be awesome if we could trust people to be smart enough to plug things in correctly, and had enough character to own up to it when they do it incorrectly. But SilverStone has to cater to the lowest common denominator, and assume that *someone* is going to screw up and try to sue them.
Small correction, the caption
Small correction, the caption for the first pic is incorrect. The middle unit is 650W not 600W.
Yep, you’re right. Fixed!
