On the bench today is the SilverStone SX550, a 550W SFX power supply with Gold-rated efficiency, 80mm fan, and fully hard-wired cables. An interesting unit that slots in between the more budget units like the Bronze-rated ST30SF V2.0 and ST45SF V3.0 that I reviewed recently and the higher-end modular units in SilverStone's ever-growing line of SFX and SFX-L PSUs.

So without further ado, let's take a look!

Good review ! I like Silverstone keeps nudging the SFX market forward, but I can't but complain about a clear and simple lineup. I'm not a fan of the current 10 model lineup, with more incoming. Especially because they make it confusing which PSU is quiet (Marketing: all are, some are more quiet).
