I'm still having doubts about those high-wattage 80+ Gold PSU's in combination with a 80mm or 92mm fan. While it proved to be more quiet than the ST45SF-G it replaces, I suspect that to be because of the 150W extra headroom allowing a lower load and thus reduced heat output to affect it. But I guess this is something Aiboh might confirm with running dual GTX 980's on one :)

I'm expecting the most out of SFX-L due to the increased fan size and larger volume (for components), since the SFX 450W 80+ Gold already has trouble performing at high usage.

The SX600-G fan ramps up even at idle but I think this is more an issue with the overly simplistic fan controller rather than a fundamental issue with dissipating the waste heat in such a tiny box. A platinum-rated 600W with a good 92mm fan and advanced fan controller should be very quiet at most loads.

LOL incredible how they just copy anything. Not that you aren't right but that they not just round it down. But your image might have turned up in Google I'd guess.

I also occasionally find my own images when I'm looking for more info on something I've discussed. No escape.

What I don't get is SFX is a spec. It's advertised as a SFX PSU so you'd think it'd follow the spec and not actually have these wacky numbers I estimated. Oh well.
