SilverStone Releases Strider Platinum Series Of PSUs

SilverStone released the new Strider Platinum series of power supplies, targeted at users who value high efficiency and quiet operations above all else.

The Strider Platinum series shares several features across the product family, most prominently an exceptional 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency rating. The 80 Plus Platinum rating is the second highest rating that a power supply can achieve, and it guarantees at least 89 percent efficiency at 115 V regardless of load. SilverStone also claimed these power supplies will experience low ripple and noise when in use, varying at most by 3 percent.

All power supplies are 140 mm in depth and should fit inside of all standard sized microATX and ATX cases. SilverStone placed a 120 mm fan inside of all units, which is designed to turn off when the PSU isn't under significant load. This enables the PSU to remain essentially silent under light loads, but cool and efficient under high load levels. The last feature shared across all PSUs is an entirely modular design.

    Another PSU article that doesn't disclose the OEM. Really kind of useless without that info.

    Actually the small size (only 14cm) is the biggest selling point. This along with its all flat cables make it very versatile. I think they are also going to a release a Titanium version soon, just 1 cm longer (15cm).

    The OEM is High Power / Sirfa.

    Strider Platinum 550w - 750w High Power / Sirfa 850w - 1200w Enhance

    It is in the THF PSU Tier list.

    Looks like so far most High Power/Sirfa tend to be tier 2/3 while Enhance is also 2/3.
