Might as well have a discussion here in case some of you guys miss out on this, especially when they only appear to have 600 made from the Indiegogo campaign.

Only on eBay, this is a limited run, with no guarantees that the case designers will get another batch made.

I got mine from hikari on sunday. Got very low scraping sound like the fan scraping the grill. Also got chirping sound when the fan is about to start. Only when i put my ears close to the intake. No coil hum heard so far. The fan is absurdly cheap-ass for such an expensive PSU.

Add 1 more, the fan doesnt stop when started after 15mins, that means the internal temperature probably already exceeded 45c. Not really semi-fanless, just delayed the fan start only tongue.gif. Eventually the fan has to start due to the internal temp exceed 45c.

Oh wait, hikari is selling the SX600? Don't see it mentioned on the WTS page...

Do you have a pic of the cable set that comes with the PSU? I might pick one up if the slim cable set suits the routing path in the case better than going with sleeved cables.

Price ain't cheap btw... US$200 not including shipping from Taiwan

Well yeah..i just ask about my order status. Maybe will ask them again. Hoping to make it as a gaming station. But im suck at cable management lol. How about you bro?for gaming or working?
*
Cable management isn't the best in the case, but you can do a lot more with black cable ties around the bottom or the top of the case, there are a lot of holes to tie your cables to.

The Silverstone SX600G PSU cables also should help quite a bit as they are pretty slim.

oh thanks for the heads up. tbh i have no idea what to do once the case arrive lol. i just need the sfx psu to make my gc fit in that case (and hopefully it will).

Which GPU? I once had a reference 290X in the case, and it fit just fine. Was really messy with WC tubing though, so it got replaced with a GTX 970 in the end.

Not quite the final build, as I've added dust filters to the radiator fans, and tucked away the radiator fan cables + the front panel cables away into corners to make them less visible.

QUOTE(E-J@1 @ Aug 7 2015, 12:22 PM)
if u looking for silent psu

do consider the Silverstone SX500-LG over the 600 watts unit

it running 12 cm fan, setoff is: it will be 3 cm wider & 100 watt lesser

QUOTE(zinniur @ Aug 7 2015, 07:54 PM)
i read many complaints about sfx 600w,whining issue,but never had chance to try one myself...since sfx 500w-L using bigger fans,i think no issues for noise...

only experienced using sfx 450w version 1.0,got whining...later rma n replaced with version 2.0,problem settled.
*
Using a 450W 2.0 here. It still have some rare coil noise though.

The fan isn't great, but the numerous reports on the fan noise I've heard aren't really present in my machine (unless I use a 290X on load, and even then the 290X fan still stays louder than it).

Some of the silent PC guys on HardOCP did remove the SFX PSU fan and replaced it though, try checking the HardOCP thread for more info on that.

I got the case recently and haven't got the time to move my stuff over from Elite130.

Just wondering which CPU cooler will be the best for the case?

So far I've only found the Noctua LH-C14. Replace the 140mm with 120mm so can use 2 fans on side panel. Anyone had experience with it?

I have:
i5 3570K
Asus Z77-I
980Ti Ref.
CM Seidon 120V (Plan to ditch water so I can bring the rig onto aircraft cabin)

Are you referring to this one? http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=103986...&postcount=2686
