SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 1200-watt Power Supply Review
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 4:50P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite a while since we have taken a look at any of the power supplies that SilverStone offers and we have missed a few of their offerings. The last time we took a look at one of their units was back in 2010 when we reviewed the ST50F-P which we were quite pleased with. That is why we jumped at the offer to take a look at their new Strider Gold Evolution power supply. The new unit is available in four flavors ranging between 750W to 1200W. SilverStone claims that the Strider Gold Evolution series is the golden standard for PSU performance, efficiency and quality, so we will be taking this into consideration as we look into the 1200-watt unit."
