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.
Left to right: SFX 500W, SFX 650W, SFX-L 700W
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.

The ATX Strider Platinum series now has a more powerful 850W option in their smallest 140 mm depth, up from last year's high of 750W in the same form-factor. True to its name the Strider Platinum 850W boasts 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, and offers a fully modular design.

Tagged: PSU, be quiet!, Pure Power L8, 700W, 80 Plus Bronze
Be Quiet! could have a value-priced winner with their Pure Power L8 700W PSU, which has enough power to handle SLI/CrossFire but with a non-modular design which should keep the price fairly reasonable. With two 12V lines capable of providing up to 53 amps you will be able to run two powerful GPUs, though perhaps not paired flagship cards. As far as efficiency goes, Legit Reviews found it to deserve the 80 Plus Bronze rating it carries and the power regulation and ripple were both very good for any PSU, let alone a value priced one. You can't buy it yet but you can see the review right here.
"Be Quiet! is an European company which, despite the strange name, is a very well-known manufacturer amongst enthusiasts, mostly for their high quality (and notoriously expensive) power supply units. We had an encounter with their very impressive Dark Power Pro 10 series a few months ago; however, impressive as it was, the price tag of such a power supply would certainly drive the vast majority of users away. Today we will be having a look at the least expensive PSU series currently offers, the Pure Power L8."
