SilverStone wanted to snatch the crown for highest wattage in the SFX category. It took advantage of the fact that Corsair delayed its SF750 to make this happen. But now that the SF750 is available, SilverStone’s SX700-G can’t touch its competition from Corsair (even though the SF750 is ~$20 more expensive).
If cost is your biggest consideration and Corsair’s SFX-based flagship is too expensive, consider the SX650-G over SilverStone’s SX700-G. Differences between those two models are minor, and the 650W PSU will save you some money.
As a pioneer in the small form factor power supply business, SilverStone has a rich portfolio of compact PSUs. The brand’s primary goal is to shrink its power supplies as much as possible, all while increasing their maximum capacity. The SX700-G is a solid example of its success; we managed to push it beyond 1000W in our tests, despite a 700W maximum power rating. It’s noteworthy to see such a small PSU deliver so much power without a problem.
The SX700-G power supply is rated for a combined, continuous output power of 700 watts at 40°C. The PSU incorporates a single +12V rail that can deliver up to 58.4A (700W). The PSU includes universal AC line input (automatically adjusts the AC line voltage) and active PFC, which makes the unit more environmentally friendly to the local power grid.
