Summary: Not much to complain about this product. It does what it was meant to do and that's to provide power. If you're looking for an SFX power supply, this is pretty much the only one that's a Gold Standard. It's fairly quiet as I have version 2.0. If I had to nit-pick on this, I would have preferred flat cables as working with an ITX setup, rounded cables makes it much more difficult to route the cables.
Pros: Quiet, small, decent price point, Gold Standard, modular
Summary: The model I received had a wire routed into the fan blades causing a terrible noise on power up. Luckily I was able to push the wire out of the way without voiding the warrenty seal, but it means that Silverstone is not testing these units before shipping since there's no way this unit would have passed. I was dissapointed to receive ver 1.1, it really is more noisy than necessary during idel - see other reviews about this problem.
Pros: Modular wiring helps reduce clutter. Small size. Relatively low noise but could be better, see cons. Fits in ATX case with supplied adapter.
Cons: Fan is more noisy than it should be during idel useage. NCIX is shipping ver 1.1, while ver 2.0 has supposedly fixed the fan noise problem.
Summary: Got this for a SG05 case and I found that some of the modular cables are so snug that they don't "clip" into the thing they should and just dangle at the edge of it. Beyond that it works perfectly. When I first got it I had issues with the PSU because it made ticks but I shook it and the obtrusive fan noises stopped.
Pros: Small, tiny, modular, powerful
Cons: Modular cables are too snug, fan rattles initially
This power supply is excellent if you are building a small mini itx computer ...

Summary: I have purchased this from somewhere else and i noticed the rewiews on this product are a bit one sided mostly due to the supplier. This power supply is excellent if you are building a small mini itx computer or home server it is completely modular helping you reduce the clutter in the case and it can deliver a decent ammount of power. Now the cooling fan is a bit on the noisy side however if you have it hidden away or in the attic you will never notice.
Summary: First lets say, Do not buy from this seller Packetwalk Systems Ltd. I have emails that prove they are a bunch of liars, they sold me a faulty product and when I contacted to get it repaired they just told me no problem sent it back, spend £6 from my own pocket. They refund me (not the postage) saying that they couldn't repair it, silverstone couldn't do it and at last the product is not with us (i contacted silverstone and was told to rma it to the seller).
Summary: Company that sells this is a joke. Advertised a used product and sent me a USB connector rather than psu, then sent back and got told I would get discount on new product as they took so long to return my money and then nothing.
