It's nice to see the power switch being that many companies including Silverstone went through a phase of not including switches on their power supplies but we really do prefer having them. The sides of the power supplies are plain black for the most part with there being a few air holes on one side.
On the top we have a centred 80mm fan providing all the cooling for this power supply and for some situations will give a little extra cooling performance to the CPU cooler depending on your case layout. The looks are nothing suer special here, just a punched grill in the metal. You would normally see this in more budget orientated products but I like it, it give the power supply a nice clean look with a hint of raw 'power' to it that I think a fancy design wouldn't achieve.
Turning it over and we find all the annoying but essential stickery goodness covering all the wattages and amp information as well as serial codes and whatnot. Here is also where the 'Void if removed' sticker is in case you want to open it up and void your warranty.

For an ITX/SFF case I think these lengths are pretty much perfect but for anything bigger such as if you were to use the ATX adaptor plate, you won't have much leeway for cable management. I would also maybe have preferred it coming with 3 Molex and a Molex to FDD adaptor rather than it coming already attached.
All the cables are sleeved as you can see in the pictures however not only is the weave incredibly thin and almost completely transparent but it also only covers to the first connection and on the 24 pin about half the cable length. From an aesthetic point of view they might as well not have bothered but I don't believe that is it's function here. I believe that in the scenario in which this power supply
A final and very important (personally) finish to the design section is the Molex connectors are some of if not THE highest quality connectors I have seen in a long long time. Molex connections have never been good and the design is while robust, quite frankly terrible. You will very easily come across terrible Molex connectors where pins don't line up well even from reputable manufacturers but I had absolutely no issue with these ones from Silverstone. The whole feel was superior to others.
Oscilloscopes and the like are very expensive so I will just go as far as saying this power supply even with just an 80mm fan does not get loud and stays quite, perfect for those who want to build a nice quiet home theatre or desktop pc.
Whether you want to build a tiny system or you want to use it with the included bracket for extra CPU cooler room like in the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced, this product will have everything you need to get up and running.
To sum it up, you get one of the best looking SFX power supplies with the highest wattage currently available and you get it at a price point that makes small form factor systems no more expensive than their standard sized counterparts. There is room for improvement obviously but this will most probably happen as the SFF market expands and becomes more popular.
Out of choice I have decided not to rate this prodact due to not being able to test it full but it has received our EDITORS CHOICE nonetheless for obvious reasons.
