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

The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W arrives in a stunning looking package, which has a reflective gold stripe across the middle of the box.

The bundle is extensive, containing mounting screws, cable tidies and a power cable for your region. There is also a product overview pamphlet and a user manual.

The majority of the connectors come pre-fitted to the chassis, but Silverstone supply an additional set of cables to cater for specific system builds (giving more SATA cables).

Silverstone have also added 2200uF capacitors to the PCI-E connectors to reduce electrical whine/buzz which can be associated with high performance graphics cards when dynamically loaded. They claim it helps with ripple and noise performance.

Connectors supplied are:

1 x 24 / 20-Pin Motherboard connector (550mm)
1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector (750mm)
1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector (550mm)
4 x 8/6-Pin PCIE connector (550mm)
4 x 6-Pin PCIE connector (550mm / 150mm)
16 x SATA connector (600mm / 150mm / 150mm/150mm)
6 x 4-Pin Peripheral connector (600mm / 150mm / 150mm)
2 x 4-Pin Floppy connector (600mm / 150mm / 150mm / 150mm)

    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?

  • Uriel

    Spectacular ! the box alone is worth the money :p
