    At Computex this year, we covered the new 700W SilverStone SFX power supply – the SX700-G. Offering a true SFX form factor at a massive (seriously) 700w, the PSU is impressive to behold.

    I like that relatively large fan it's got, much better than the old SFX psu's with those soso 80mm's.

    There are quite a number of 92mm fans in SFX units... Silverstone two years ago updated even the ST30SF (V2.0) and the ST45SF (V3.0) to 92mm. The SX500-G, SX650-G, SX700-G are all using 92mm -- curiously the 450, 500 and 550 watt Silverstone SFX Gold PSUs are 80mm still. Corsair moved from 80mm to 92mm with the Platinum series.

    No Corsair uses 92mm fans in both the Gold and Platinum, they did change to a different 92mm fan with the Platinum.

    you're right, now that I look again.
    I haven't looked at proper sfx psu's in a while, grabbed an SX500LG for my ncase build about 4 years ago and didn't do a good job keeping up with them since.

    Always happy to hear I'm wrong in a case like this.

    I guess not looking at SFX psus for so long messed up my mental image of them, and made the fan on this SX700G look bigger to me.

    This PSU has quite an aggressive fan curve, no 0 RPM mode. The fan is always spinning @ at least 1200 RPM. That's a deal breaker for me. I don't understand why, I get that components are more densely packed, but still no reason the fan should be spinning with 100W power consumption.

    I hope they fixed the OCP that prematurely tripped on the SX650. I've currently got mine in for RMA because it trips on the Vega56 unless it is put in power saver mode.

    Any hope of a dual EPS connector solution for this?
