For $60 its pretty good - what's with Silverstone and Sirfa? Should use more Enhance designs.

Good review but question, why do you want to install a SFX PSU into a Regular case?

Thanks guys. To answer first question, I think Sirfa has been used in quite a few of SilverStone's PSUs, and they generally are becoming better -- maybe not Seasonic quality, but better for sure. 

 

As for the second question, I don't think you would want to use this PSU in any larger case. However for SFF cases like the SilverStone Sugo SG13 that support the full sized ATX mount, the SFX-to-ATX bracket is handy here. There are other examples of these cases from other manufacturer's too.
