With Mini-ITX motherboards becoming overclockable, more enthusiasts are making small gaming builds where every inch matters.
I ordered this for my Mini-ITX system with a Lian Li PC-Q18, i5-3570K, Asrock Z77E-ITX and an old GTX 260.
The reduced cables with the PP05 cable set (bought separately) shaved ~3C off the GPU/CPU temperature because of the increased airflow.
They came with the original long cables which is clutter in a system people usually buy this short PSU for.
No power button.
-Quiet - can't hear it over the case fans or the fan in my TV
-Short 140mm depth makes it work well in small cases
-Modular - reduces clutter
-34a single +12v rail adequate for most mid-level video cards (Not GTX680 or HD7970)
-Only one PCIe port
-Included cables are entirely too long for small cases
If using this PSU with a small case, I would also recommend the PP05 cable kit. This will clean up the inside of the case. You will still need to use the original CPU power cable. Also, if you intend to use a video card that requires either two six pin or a six and eight pin PCIe connector, you will be limited to using the original cables as the PP05 kit only comes with single six pin PCIe cables.
Overall, this PSU has been trouble-free and quiet. Alone, it is a great value and remains a good value even with the additional cost of the short cable kit.

- Fully modular, though I'm using it an ATX case so this didn't matter too much to me. This may wind up in an HTPC case in the future, so the modularity will be greatly appreciated if/when that happens.
- Very QUIET operation!
- Lots of power on the +12V rail to support power-hungry graphics cards (34A on a single rail).
- Cables come wrapped with mesh and seem very sturdy/high-quality.
- Includes several zip ties and velco to wrap up the cables inside of the case.
- No ON/OFF power switch on the back.
- The inputs to connect the power cables had some give to them and seemed a little flimsy but they snapped in just fine.
I wouldn't use a 500W power supply for an SLI/Crossfire setup but for a single card this should be plenty. It is powering the following in my system:
- Intel i5-4570S CPU
- Nvidia GTX 650 Ti
- 2 SATA SSDs
- 2 SATA HDDs
- 1 SATA optical drive
I had always purchased Corsair PSUs before, but this particular Silverstone model had an optional short cable kit, which ended up being great for my micro ATX case. I'm currently using this to power a Core i5-2500K (overclocked to 4.3), a GTX 560Ti overclocked video card, plus the usual complement of hard drive, SSD, RAM, and 3 fans. I'm quite happy with the stability and build quality of this unit. Add Silverstone to my list of trusted power supply makers.
I won't ever go back to a non modular power supply.
I have used mine over 2 years now!
I added the short plug set and it made this a DREAM UPS arrangement.
UPS runs beyond QUIET and COOL.
I have had NO problems with mine and do NOT expect to have any.
This was one of my best purchases ever!

I love the size and the idea of 100% modular. Not to mention I love the company, but the product came dead on arrival (DOA). Read morePublished 8 months ago by Andrew

Bought this PSU for silence. It is easily the loudest component of my sound optimized system. On startup you hear a jet engine. Then it lowers down to an audible whoosh. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Matthew Tse
It is a great power supply. You can also buy short modular cables from SilverStone which is nice if you have a smaller case. The fan was a little bit noisy.Published on May 11, 2014 by Duncan Idaho
This power supply is quiet and easy to install.
I recommend it for all replacements because the modular plugs are a worthwhile upgrade.
