Lee took a look at Corsair's fun sized SF600 just before the holidays, giving it high marks across the board.  You may have missed it while you were out shopping, or forgotten so this review over at [H]ard|OCP could be worth your time.  The PSU passed all their tests as well, producing almost the same results as their tests of  the previous generation of SF600.  You do have to pay a bit extra for those fancy individually sleeved wires, so if that is not necessary for your build you can check out some of the less expensive options of similar quality at the end of the review.

"Corsair is no stranger to the enthusiast computer power supply market, and most of its PSUs are built for ATX form factor cases. Corsair does however dabble a bit in the SFX end of the spectrum which tries to shoehorn as much power as possible into the smallest space possible. Let's see what the new SF600 is all about."

Is be quiet's Pure Power 600W PSU a 10?

Kilowatt class PSUs such as the Seasonic PRIME Platinum which Lee just reviewed are impressive and up to the task of powering the most powerful of systems but for most they are overkill.  For the majority of us, something in a 600W model will be sufficient for our needs as well as being more efficient.  A little while back [H]ard|OCP took a look at be quiet's Pure Power 10 600W 80 PLUS Silver modular PSU, the first be quiet! to meet their benchmarking table.  It operated quietly and it was handsomely built, however once they started testing the PSU simply could not take the heat.  If you live somewhere which never reaches 30C ambient this might be an acceptable solution but for the rest of us ... the review reveals a significant issue.

"This may come as a shock to you, but be quiet! power supplies are all about...wait for it...exceptionally quiet operation. However that is not the only virtue the Pure Power 10 series extols. be quiet tells us that this PP10 has "peerless dependability" and "best-in-class features." Let's see if we can set it on fire!"
