The SX650-G is manufactured by High Power, and it employs a similar platform as the one found in SilverStone's SX500-G. We find a half-bridge topology and an LLC resonant converter on the primary side. On the secondary side, six FETs regulate the +12V rail and a couple of DC-DC converters generate the minor rails.
Beyond the typical circuitry we expect to find in a PSU, there's also an 8-bit micro-controller (STC 15W408AS) that's probably utilized by the fan control circuit. Or, it may assist the PSU's supervisor IC.
The cooling fan SilverStone uses is more capable than the one in its SX500-G, since the higher-capacity model gets hotter. A fluid dynamic bearing is common in enthusiast-oriented PSUs nowadays.
The album above includes photos illustrating the SX650-G's major parts, while the following video shows the SX650-G’s internals.
