Corsair recently introduced two new SFX small form-factor power supplies into their already formidable lineup of PC power supplies. The SF Platinum Series includes two SFX models, the SF450 (450W) and SF600 (600W). They are very similar to the two current Gold Series SFX units currently on the market but thanks to some tweaks in the circuit design and manufacturing process the Platinum Series SF450 and SF600 now deliver Platinum level efficiency.

Both new power supplies feature fully modular cables with individually sleeved wires. The SF450 and SF600 feature a Zero RPM Fan Mode for silent operation at low to medium power and come backed by a 7-year warranty. And an SFX-to-ATX mounting bracket is included in the box. We will be taking a detailed look at the Corsair SF600 Platinum power supply in this review.

Introduction

Corsair continues to expand their extensive power supply lineup with the addition of two new small form factor (SFX) units, the SF450 and SF600. The SF Series power supplies are fully modular and optimized for quiet operation and high efficiency. Both power supplies feature Zero RPM Fan Mode, which means the fan doesn’t start to spin until the power supply is under a moderate to heavy load. The SF450 and SF600 are 80 Plus Gold certified for high efficiency and come with a 5-year warranty.

While the SF Series is designed for use in small form factor enclosures, Corsair’s SF Series power supplies can also be used in standard ATX cases to save room via the optional SFX to ATX adapter bracket. As you can see in the photo below, the SF Series power supply is much smaller in all three dimensions than a standard ATX power supply. We will be taking a detailed look at the new SF600W power supply in this review.
