It sounds promising so far but I want to see a review from JohnnyGURU or a site of that caliber. Shouldn't be too long I'm guessing.
IIRC he doesn't do the reviews on that site anymore.Would be kind of weird seeing a reveiw from jonnyGURU no? Considering he works for corsair now and may have had a hand in testing or designing this psu.
They sell power cables that fit opposite way on the ncase website.I also received my SF600 today.
I am impressed with the overall packaging, better than Silverstone.
The 24pin atx and the 8 pin motherboard cable are exactly the same length as my Silverstone 45sf-g. I thought it would be longer.
However the power inlet on SF600 is upside down compared to Silverstone so the power cable in my Ncase has to bend around, and this is the only way you can fit in Ncase M1, fan intake facing outward.
The cables are quite stiff. Especially the ATX 24pin, there isnt much room for the cable in Ncase M1 so it is pusing against my radiator now. Some shorter/softer aftermarket cable definitely would help.
It is very quiet, but I do observe the fan will sometimes kick in below 50W (web browsing with 6700K oc 4.5G @1.28V with iGPU.
I'll see how is the noise under load when I get my GTX970 tomorrow.

Did anyone see the price update on these? It seems they raised the price for the PSU.
So it looks like I'll have to RMA my SF600 already. The fan will give out vibration noise when it start spinning fast. Imagine the noise that the harddrive will give when it is reading/writing, very distracting.
I have no idea, but I guess it is quite warm inside Ncase M1 as the fan is on most of the time.Do you have an estimate of what temperature or fan RPM the PSU is at when it starts making that noise?

The noise started to kick in few minutes in Witcher 3 and after playing for an hour then quit the game it was very audible because other fans quiet down. The case of the PSU was just little warm throughout though.
In which orientation is the PSU fan? Facing outwards or inwards?
And what is opposite it within the case? HDD cage, 120mm fan?
I am going to build this evening and am thinking of facing the PSU inwards with a 120mm fan blowing at it instead of the 3.5" HDD cage.
Facing outwards, I believe this is the only way with the stock M1 PSU cable.
The back of the PSU is a 240mm radiator blowing in.
I was unable to install 2 SSDs in the front of my M1 using the Corsair cables. Eventhough I fliped the SSDs and managed to get the cabling in, the lid just wouldn't close.
Now I have the two SSDs on the rear side of the front panel.
Maybe some custome cabling would be a sollution. Any suggestions?
Can't think of any suggestions (other than flipping the orientation of the drives, like you tried), but just wondering.. are the Corsair cables longer than usual, and there's just too much to cram into that spot - or is it the position of where the cables connect to the PSU that is interfering with your dual SSD placement?
Iirc, even for my shortest combo of cables for the Silverstone SX600-G, I still had to fold a couple of them once or twice and squeeze them between the backside of the PSU and the 3.5" HDD rack.
Can you post an example?
How big is the SF450 and SF600 compared to the Silverstone SFX (not SFX-L) 450W psu?
Looking at getting one to quiet everything down. Not sure which one to get though, I don't need the extra capacity of the 600W unit though I am wondering if it stays fanless for longer than the 450W one
Amazon has a few: one , two, three.
Out of those, three looks the most promising.
I'll be receiving my SF600 this week, so I can't help with any hands on experience.Update regarding the SSDs in the front of the M1 case:
I can't even get a single SSD in the front of the M1 case as the Corsair power cables don't allow the bend without a lot of force. Has anyone else had any success?
It's not a huge deal for me as I can fit both SSDs on the inside of the front panel...
