It's about time I took a crack at a power supply review, since James has covered this market segment up to this point. FSP has been a manufacturer of SFX power supplies for some time now, with most of their units being supplied in OEM form to case manufacturers such as In-Win and the like. It is in this form that I first tested a FSP power supply, namely a 300W SFX unit that was bundled with an In-Win BK-series chassis. My experiences with this unit was (and continues to be) good, with reliable and quiet operation appearing to be a FSP hallmark across this and the other SFX, ATX, and TFX power supplies from them I have used in the past few years. Will the FSP Dagger 600W hold true to this reputation?

Moderately. They do put up some resistance, but on the positive side, this means they hold their shape when formed.

I hope SFX PSUs transfer to 92mm or ideally 100mm fans soon, I get a strange sensation when I see a wee 80mm fan inside an SFX PSU.

Measuring the pictures it does look like it's actually 110mm deep.

I'd still classify it as SFX though since it's closer to that than SFX-L which is 130mm.

I guess that's how they got the connectors flush, they just made the housing bigger.
