    Introduction

    When I watch people building up a gaming or enthusiast system I see most of their time and money is spent on making sure they get the most powerful video card and best processor.  This is a natural tendency since those are the things we perceive to dictate overall performance.  The thing is many people forget that performance cannot be realized unless you have power to drive everything, which means you also need a quality PSU.

    In this review we will be looking at the Silverstone Strider Platinum 1200W PSU.  As the namesake suggests the new Strider Platinum is an 80+ Platinum certified PSU that comes with everything the Strider series has to offer plus 1200 Watts.
