Thanks for the link. Interesting that the Platinum hit Titanium efficiency in some tests. Right now it is more of a curiosity more than anything, does the efficiency of the Platinum PSU improve the thermals enough to cause a perceptible difference? My luck has been that things always run a little hot, so could I gain an edge by springing for a Platinum PSU or would that be better allocated towards better fans/cooling solution? Or in my case, probably cable managementNo direct vs eachother, but Johnyguru has pretty in-depth reviews of both. You can compare the reviews as they follow the same structure, in particular the load testing results. He does refer to the gold in the platinum review to some degree.
*note. Just looking at the hot load testing intake/exhaust temps seems an error in the exhaust of sf600 gold.
So only of limited use for your question unfortunately. In general you can read the reviews of improvements gold vs platinum. Also different cables provided with the platinum i believe.
In my similar situation: For my new DAN A4 build was reviewing suitable PSU's. My Ncase M1 has a Silverstone SFX 450 gold and have another Silverstone ML08 case with Silverstone SFX-L 500. For the A4 wanted to stick with SFX to remain having the AIO option. Further semi-passive mode highly desired, this was the main gripe i had with my Silverstone SFX-450 (1st model year so getting 'old').
In choosing between the two Corsair SFX's, I was mainly interested in the noise behavior. Platinum might sound better on paper, but could have a more aggressive fan curve at higher load.
I went with the platinum, very happy with the build, super quiet.
