Lee reviewed the Corsair SF600 back in June but you might not have been shopping for a new PSU, especially a SFF one.  Take another look at the performance of this PSU over at [H]ard|OCP, which should be enough to power an RX480 or GTX1070 based system if you are eyeing a new system build.  They agreed with our results, giving out a Gold Award but also mentioning the SilverStone SX600-G, an older PSU with a smaller price tag and a feature or two that might interest you more than Corsair's new PSU.

"Corsair has gotten into making computers smaller lately with its Bulldog 4K Living Room Gaming System, and now it is going to share its SF600 power supply that follows the SFX standard form factor, which is tiny for a 600 watt PSU. Given its diminutive stature, has Corsair packed it to the gills with good power?"

Is there a fanless SFX yet? Why can't they make one?

Heat. There's no such thing as perfect efficiency; it's literally impossible. Everything the PSU does with the electricity before it sends it out to your components releases energy in the form of heat, and that heat has to be dissipated.

They might be able to make a fanless SFX power supply. It'll probably be about 150 watts.
