  • Silverstone ST850F-GS Strider Gold S Power Supply Review



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

    In this review we will be looking at the Silverstone Strider Gold S 850W PSU.  As the namesake suggests the Strider Gold S is an 80Plus Gold certified PSU with the “S” indicating small?  We say small because this PSU is dubbed as the world’s smallest fully modular power supply.
