SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 1000W Power Supply Review
Specifications and Packaging
The SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 1000W power supply supports the ATX12V v2.3 and EPS12V standards and is rated for a combined, continuous output power of up to 1,000 watts at 40°C operating temperature. That’s important as some less reputable manufactures limit their power supply’s advertised capacity by specifying a lower operating temperature (25°C) in the fine print.
The Strider Gold Evolution 1000W PSU incorporates a single +12V output that can deliver up to 83A (996W). The PSU includes universal AC line input (automatically adjusts the AC line voltage) and active PFC, which makes the unit more environmentally friendly to the local power grid.
