A little over a year ago the Strider Gold line was released - this was Silverstone`s first entry into the 80PLUS Gold certified market of power supplies. The Strider Gold were well made, high performing and quiet operating power supplies. I actually still use a Strider Gold in one of my systems today. Looking to keep the Strider Gold as their `king of power supplies`, Silverstone has recently released the Strider Gold Evolution. The Strider Gold Evolution is quite simply an `evolved` version of the original Strider Gold. Silverstone has upgraded a lot of the internal components and re-designed the cooling system to make the Strider Gold even quieter and higher performing than it was before. Today I`ll be putting the new 750 watt Strider Gold Evolution up against my original Strider Gold to see if these upgrades are worth it!"
