SilverStone's Strider series has been with us for quite a while and tends to be among the better PSUs around.  The new Strider Gold S provides 850W of power, with up to 70A on the 12V and four 6+2 PCIe power connectors for multiple GPUs.  All of that power comes in a package a mere 150x86x150 mm, barely enough to fit the 120mm fan.  [H]ard|OCP strapped it to their torture devices and saw that it could outperform even some of its close relatives in the Strider family.  Not only does it get a pass, it picks up a Silver Award on its way.

"Good things come in small packages and SilverStone continues its Gold S series with smaller fully modular footprints at the 850 watt power level. SilverStone claims Gold level efficiency, tight voltage regulation, a single rail design, low fan noise, and plenty of PCIe outlets. All the things that SilverStone is famous for. "

Silverstone's Gold 750W PSU

The SilverStone Strider Gold S ST75F-GS is a decent choice to power a moderately powerful gaming PC with four 6+2 PCIe power connectors able to deliver up to 744W at 62A on its single 12V rail.  As well it is a rather short PSU at 6" long making it a good contender to power a system built in a smaller casing while still sporting an efficient 120mm fan.  In [H]ard|OCP's testing it didn't take top spot in any one category but did rate very highly on all tests, arguably a better result than a PSU that is top notch in one area but lacklustre in others.  With an MSRP of $135 and an 80 PLUS Gold rating it is a good choice though a better warranty would be greatly appreciated.

"SilverStone is back today with its 750 watt computer power supply that is part of its S series. It is billed as the smallest 750w PSU that is fully modular. So this PSU should appeal to those looking to custom builds that could either have size or cable customization in mind. Does SilverStone keep with its longstanding quality traditions?"
