At CES 2017 this year, Silverstone announced their new 800W SFX-L Power Supply. Beating even their own 700 Watter. If packing 800 Watts into a tiny package (4.92" x 2.5" x 5.12") isn't impressive enough. It is Titanium Rated (90-94%+ Efficiency), it has a 120mm Fan (that only runs when needed) and it is Fully Modular. And if you think they are exaggerating about that 800 Watt rating (like Diablotech might do), 800 Watts is the continuous power output rating. The peak output rating is 850 Watts! But, expect to part with between $180 and $200 (Street Price) for all that power :^) And if you need it RIGHT NOW. They are already available at both Newegg and Amazon. Here is a link to more technical information at the Silverstone Tech:
Well, the title basically sums up my question. I'm looking at either sleeving my current PSU, a ZX-850W, or buying a new PSU with better looking cables (i.e. flat stock modular cables). I've had this power supply for about 3.5 years. I've tossed around the idea of sleeving it for some time now, and every time I start to do it again, I realise how much of a mess the pin out is on this thing! It is about as far away from a one-to-one pin out as you can get. Basically I'm looking at getting about a $150 in sleeving supplies or using that money towards a new PSU. And if you're wondering, I will eventually sleeve the new one if I get one. So if you're suggesting power supplies, keep in mind I'd like to find one that is better suited to make custom cables for. If anyone has any input or thoughts, please let me know. It's all appreciated!
I haven't seen this done yet, but the concept is simple: making a Semi-Modular power supply Fully Modular by changing the front panel and adding some mini-fit cutouts with panel mounted headers. I looked on the big G (Google) but couldn't find anything on this topic. My questions to you is, have you ever seen this mod or performed it? If not I am willing to try and do a quick write up for other's sake. Thanks, 420man
