PRICE & AVAILABILITY

SilverStone’s FX600 is priced at US$189.99, with release period of February 2022. The EU pricing has not been determined at this stage. The FX600 should have reasonably availability in UK, EU & US.

DESIGN & FEATURES

The chassis and cables are all black and use lead-free paint. There’s no included power switch, although the PSU will still power down when no load is detected. The PSU has all the safety features & connectors one could want or need. However, we fail to understand why SilverStone have opted to include Molex connectors, Floppy connector & 4 SATA connectors (2 / 3 max is enough). Molex & Floppy is almost unused in modern PCs space and non-existent in high end SFF PCs. Having these extra unnecessary cables in compact PC, just serves to block airflow and make cable management more difficult or impossible.

NOISE & FAN PROFILE

The power supply is cooled by either 40x15mm or 40x20mm fan that stays below 4000.rpm upto 400W and increases slightly at 450W. This means the power supply remains relatively quiet upto 450W. From 450~600W, the fan rapidly increases in intensity and noise level from 4000~11000.rmp.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
