PRICING & AVAILABILITY

SilverStone’s FX600 is priced at US$189.99 or €159. The FX600 can be purchased via Amazon in UK, EU & US. It will also be available from other online retailers.


DESIGN & FEATURES

The chassis and cables are all black and use lead-free paint with long enough cables for easy routing. There’s no included power switch, however the PSU will power down under no load scenario. The FX600 features many safety features and connectors. SilverStone have opted to include Molex, Floppy & 4 SATA connectors, along with essential connectors.

Molex and Floppy connectors is almost unused in modern PC and non-existent in high-end SFF PC, which is the target audience. Having additional unnecessary cables in compact PC restricts airflow and makes cable management more difficult or impossible in some instances. We’d like to see modular cable options in future but understand this would significantly increase pricing.


FAN PROFILE & NOISE

SilverStone’s FX600 was progressively tested upto 600W for 25 minutes per cycle in 20°C ambient room temperature.

The stock fan in the SilverStone FX600 can be replaced with Noctua’s NF-A4x20, which can support upto 420W (our recommendation) without cooling issues. Powerdraw above 420W may result in your overheating or longevity issues. Note: opening your PSU may void your warranty.
