  • SilverStone ST1200-PTS Strider Platinum 1200W Power Supply Review



    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 enough 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.  We reviewed this PSU several years ago and in terms of features it isn't much different.  1200W 80 Plus Platinum rating with a fully modular cable system, magnetic fan filter with an iconic black paint job and expertly designed modular plugs indicating where every cable goes.  So, what is the difference?

    This version is smaller.  MUCH smaller, in fact this is the first 1200w PSU to fit in a 150mm chassis which is a size normally reserved for smaller 500-750w PSUs and honestly a form factor that seemly had gotten lost when SLI and Crossfire hit the market.
