  • SilverStone ST1500-Ti Strider 80 Plus Titanium Power Supply Review



    Recently I put together build for a couple of events and wanted to go a little overboard when it came to the components.  I started with a fully watercooled motherboard and stuffed that inside a special edition MasterCase Maker 5T case.  To top it off I added a GTX 1080 Classified video card and some RGB lights.  Given the high-end nature of this build I wanted to do something special with the power supply.  It needed to be over 1000w with modular cables and to prove I cared about the environment it needed to be super efficient and for most people that means 80 Plus Gold.

    Well, I'm not most people

    In this review I’ll be giving you an overview of one of the most impressive power supplies I have ever used, the SilverStone Strider 1500w Titanium.  This is an 80 Plus Titanium power supply offering the highest efficiency rating available that can convert over 90% of the consumed power into usable electricity instead of heat. 

    Overall, this translates into lower temperatures and near silent operation in any system.  For those looking to build the most efficient systems possible with multiple GPUs for gaming, folding, mining, scientific calculations, or machine learning, the 1100W / 1300W / 1500W Strider Titanium series power supplies are definitely the top choices.
