Just did this upgrade myself, also with a SF600. So far seems to be working flawlessly. 

Was a bit worried when it didn't start up the first time; I missed the part about needing to use the paperclip trick. Ended up adding a permanent connection between the PWR_ON  and GND pins to make the unit turn on automatically when the TB3 cable is connected. Thanks to @shadethegrey for the picture outlining which pins to join. Once I fashioned my own jumper, it works exactly as it did with the old PSU. 

Only thing left now is to replace the bottom fan with a quieter one. Anyone have any insight on the best (quietest) fan to use?
