    Bottom Line: X-Finity was always a capable power supply at a fair price, JonnyGuru reviewed the 500W and 600W with FlexForce cables, they both faired well and one almost got 10 out of 10, read on to find out which one .....

    Conclusion

    If the 500W had active power factor correction, I would give it a 10. It has plenty of power, looks good, stays cool, is efficient and I absolutely LOVE the FlexForce cables. But due to the lack of power factor, I'm going to give the 500W X-Finity with FlexForce cables a 9.5, which still earns it an SL Central Editor's Choice award.

    The 600W could have faired as well, if not better, because of the additional power available and the incredibly stable rails even during crossloads. But because the efficiency was not as good and the two 80MM fans were a bit louder than the 500W's single 120MM, I'm giving the 600W X-Finity with FlexForce cables a strong 9 rating.
