The Super Flower SF-550R14N 550W power supply has a maximum wattage output of 550W. This is a mid-range capacity, and should be fine as long as it is part of an equally mid-range system build. Always make sure that a purchased PSU is capable of powering your system. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.
The Super Flower SF-550R14N 550W has an 80 Plus rating of Platinum. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 89%, 92%, and 90% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Platinum is the best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the Super Flower SF-550R14N 550W is exceptionally efficient and comes very highly recommended. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 90.99%, 92.88%, and 91.64%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.
The dimensions of the Super Flower SF-550R14N 550W (LxWxH) are 16.5cm x 15cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The Super Flower SF-550R14N 550W is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.
The Super Flower SF-550R14N 550W is not designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on could potentially be noticeable and irritating, though this may only be a problem for those that require silent environments.
