Default BC1 Mini Power Supply size

In the OBT Mini product webpage, it says a 'full size ATX power supply unit' can be mounted to the Mini.
https://openbenchtable.com/mini/#psu

But, in the Specifications page, it says 'SFX and SFX-L' size power supply units are supported.
https://openbenchtable.com/specifications/

These 2 contradict each other. Which one is correct?

I would think, SFX/SFX-L only is more logical. But I still like this to be officially confirmed.

Thanks.

Just bought a BC1 Mini and am looking for a SFX/SFX-L PSU to go along with it.
This is my first entry into ITX and as I am not familiar with this form factor, what PSU (brand and model number) would be of good quality? I am interested in 600W-700W range.

Corsair has a very nice 600w sfx power supply. There's a silverstone 700w and 800w as well, however from reading reviews the fan seems to be based on load not heat and supposedly some have died because the fan didn't spin up so may want to avoid. I know that for most itx cpu benching you'll be doing the 600w should be fine. I've actually run quite a few cpu benches using corsair 600w and it's a nice little unit, although 600w probably isn't enough to really push a cpu and gpu on xtreme cooling.

Thanks, yosarianilives, for your advice.

I have read about that Corsair unit as well. However, I am not aware of the Silverstone units having fan issue. Thanks for the tips.
As I have no plan to do extreme overclocking, 600W should be enough.
