Enermax Revolution SFX 550W review

The SFX power supply market must be growing, because it seems like every few months now there are companies announcing new PSUs aimed at SFF enthusiasts. It was late last year that Enermax announced their Revolution SFX series, and today we’re now looking at the Revolution SFX 550W. While Enermax is no stranger to power supplies – and has even sold SFX units in the past – this...

Segotep RexGB fans 1200 – A Quick Review

Firstly, a disclaimer. While it may seem like this review comes about a bit too soon after my ‘RGB can be ok’ rant, this review item was not a sample provided by the manufacturer, and thus the rant was not just me redacting my opinions so that I could get a freebie. I legitimately purchased this product for my own use, and have chosen to review it. I just wanted to play with shiny...

SilverStone SX550 Review

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...

An In Depth Review of the Enermax SteelWing

We would like to thank Enermax for providing us with a review sample of their Enermax SteelWing chassis. Without their generosity, this case review would not be possible. Originally announced back in May of last year, Enermax released the Enermax SteelWing chassis in October of 2016 with little-to-no fanfare. In fact, a quick search around the net reveals that this case hasn’t even received...

Hauteware Black Angel – A Community Review

This review has been written by forum member IntoxicatedPuma, and reflects their views, not necessarily those of SmallFormFactor.net. Only minor edits for readability have been made.  The next case from The China Desk is also from a Taobao seller with their own unique design. This seller only has one case however, and that is the “Black Angel.” When I purchased it from them for 499...

SilverStone ST30SF V2.0 and ST45SF V3.0 Review

Welcome to this special double feature PSU review! On the docket today are the SilverStone ST30SF V2.0 and the ST45SF V3.0, which are non-modular, Bronze-rated units with 92mm cooling fans of 300W and 450W capacity respectively. As the revision number at the end signifies, these are updated versions of previous SilverStone SFX power supplies and as such, they retain the old naming scheme. After...

Metal Fish’s Metal Book – a Community Review

This review has been written by forum member IntoxicatedPuma, and reflects their views, not necessarily those of SmallFormFactor.net. Only minor edits for readability have been made.  Since a lot of people don’t have access to cases and computer components inside China – or at least it is difficult to get them – I figured I would start a series to review some of the unique cases...

SilverStone SX800-LTI Review

It hasn’t even been a full year since the SX700-LPT came out, and yet Silverstone has already one-upped themselves on both wattage and efficiency with their just-released unit, the SX800-LTI. For those not familiar with Silverstone’s current SFF PSU model number scheme, that amalgam of numbers and letters translates to a 800W, SFX-L form factor, Titanium-rated efficiency, fully...
