With small form factor systems growing in popularity, the market for SFX PSUs is increasing as well. FSP have just released their new Dagger family of SFX PSUs with two models, a $100 500W and a $110 600W. Both of these PSUs feature single 12V rails and are rated 80 Plus Gold, the internals are based off of server quality PCBs and offer DC to DC power.
They ship with a removable backplate to allow them to be used in full sized builds as well, with the small size of the PSU leaving more space in your case for cooling solutions and air flow. The PSU itself is cooled by an 80mm fan, about as large as you can fit in the 125×63.5×110 mm shell.
The Dagger is fully modular, with flat cables to make cable management even easier. The PSU ships with two PCIe 6+2 power connectors, five SATA, two molex and a floppy plug in addition to the motherboard power cables. You can check out the video below, or click through to read the full PR from FSP.
FSP’s SFX Dagger PSUs Powering Compact Enthusiast PC Builds
80Plus Gold-Rated 500W/600W Power Supplies for SFF Gaming Computers
1st March, 2017 – Taipei, Taiwan – FSP, the performance power specialist, is eager to announce its Dagger Series SFX power supplies. Available in 500W and 600W models, these PSUs offer PC builders high-wattage, high-performance options for small form factor (compact-sized) builds.
Efficiently Power Small Form Factor Builds
Using the convenient SFX form factor, Dagger PSUs pack double the power density of a standard ATX PSU. Both models are 80 Plus Gold certified – over 90% efficiency under typical system load. At 500W and 600W, these power supplies are more than capable of meeting the demands of even high-end enthusiast hardware: ideal for Mini ITX or Micro ATX VR gaming systems.
Hassle-Free Modular Connectors with Space Saving Flat Ribbon Cables
The Dagger series is completely modular; all of its connectors are flush with the back panel for a clean, polished look. Its flat ribbon cables save users space and hassle, ideal for space-constrained SFF enclosures and making installation less of a headache. Plus, fewer and thinner cables improve overall airflow performance.
DC-to- DC Design and Premium Components for Reliability
The single 12V rail design uses DC-to- DC modules for optimal efficiency, voltage stability, and compatibility, especially when crossregulating an unbalanced load. These PSUs use high-quality Japan-made electrolytic capacitors, improving their overall lifespan and reliability. With a 5-year warranty, the Dagger series is guaranteed to keep SFF PCs running well into their prime.
The FSP Dagger Series is now available in 500W/600W versions at a MSRP of $99/109 USD, respectively.
