SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W PSU Review (SST-ST1200-G)

Rating: 9.0.

If you are the proud owner of a new high end SLI or CrossfireX gaming system, then you might be in the market for a powerful, future proof power supply. The product we are going to be looking at today will be of interest as it is 80 Plus Gold Certified modular design capable of outputting 1200W, with peaks up to 1300W. Is the SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W power supply good enough to be on your next shortlist?

The specification list for the Strider Gold 1200W is as good as we have seen in recent months. It is a pure modular design capable of generating 1300W+ peak power at 40c operating temperatures. The single 12V rail can deliver 100A and SilverStone claim a strict ±3% voltage regulation with low noise performance. Thankfully they have opted for a large 135mm fan to help keep noise to a minimum.

    yeah, that would do the job for hard core SLI setups. a few GTX590s, or even better four 580s 🙂

    I love the look of that PSU, good specs and the cabling is brilliantly handled.

    Quite a few good ones lately, Corsair, OCZ 1250, ADATA and this one.

    I like the way it comes ‘precabled’ although they should have included a storage pouch. no one will want all those cables hanging loose in a system.

    Very nice. under £200, thats a first for a 80 plus gold PSU at 1200W isnt it?
