SilverStone Strider Titanium ST1500-TI PSU Review

Protection Features

Check out our PSUs 101 article to learn more about PSU protection features. Our protection features evaluation methodology is described in detail here.

Protection Features
OCP12V: 142A (113.6%) - 11.99V 5V: 34A (155%) 3.3V: 37.3A (149%) 5VSB: 5.1A (170%)
OPP1702.6W (113.51%)
OTP✓ (160°C ambient @ secondary side)
SCP12V: ✓ 5V: ✓ 3.3V: ✓ 5VSB: ✓ -12V: ✓
PWR_OKDoes not function correctly
NLO
SIPSurge: MOV Inrush: NTC thermistor & bypass relay

The OCP levels on every rail except for +12V are at their usual high levels. On the other hand, over-power protection is configured on the low side, mostly because of this PSU's already-monstrous capacity. Over-temperature protection is supported, and again, we noticed that the power-good signal is inaccurate (it drops after the rails go out of spec).

    This is the season to be mining. Its winter and those that do mine should be doing so to keep the house warm during peak winter season if not to earn extra cash to go under the tree then to at least help lower their heating bill. -evil grin- actually im trying to promote people to buy more graphics cards because when all this fake coin crashes it will be raining graphics cards cheap everywhere!

    I had not noticed the absence of a power switch, someone could have sent an uncompleted one, otherwise looks great.
