Chieftec Launches Smart SFX-500GD-C Power Supply

Chieftec has been always known as a quick-change artist in the hardware market. As a rule, SFX power supply units can’t boast high power or productive cooling. However, far otherwise is Chieftec that proves the contrary. Its latest Smart SFX-500GD-C solution is a combination of an astounding efficiency and a full-blown 120 mm fan. Due to this, the model has been certified to work as a part of Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX graphics configurations.

Chieftec Smart SFX-500GD-C features 125x135x64 mm dimensions. Offering 500 W power, it provides for more than 90% efficiency in the majority of workloads. Herein, there in small wonder that this model has won 80Plus Gold certificate. Reliability is the other distinctive feature ascribed to this PSU. It is backed by a single +12V rail with the output capability of 40A. An overall charging power of +3.3V and +5V rails makes up 150W.

This allows for the creation of a high-performance system with a flagship CPU and a top-tier GPU. …
