Silverstone Strider 560w ST56F ATX PSU

Appearance

Measuring 150 mm (W) x 86 mm (H) x 140 mm (D) the Strider ST56F is actually one of the smallest power supplies I have ever tested. I can confidently say that this power supply should fit any standard ATX case and also the majority of M-ATX and HTPC cases. In fact, this power supply would have been an ideal companion for the Aspire X-QPack case I reviewed a short while ago.

The ST56F may be small, but it's certainly no lightweight. Weighing in at 2.2kg it rather surprised me when I first picked it up.

Keeping in theme with the rest of Silverstone's product line-up, the ST56F is sprayed in matt black paint (which was actually quite shiny - and proved hard to photograph), with a simplistic Silverstone sticker on the side displaying the vital statistics and usual warnings of the power supply.

The front of the ST56F has a honeycomb grill as seen on most power supplies that utilise a 120mm fan. Behind the grill you can just about see some of the internals, which all apart from the green and white cable look very tidily arranged. You may also notice the lack of a voltage selection switch (110/230v), this is because the unit is able to detect the input voltage and switch accordingly.

On top of the unit you can see the 120mm fan placed slightly off centre to better cover the components. The fan is covered with a painted black grill.

So you can't fit a PCP&C 1kw in your case, and the recently reviewed Silverstone Zeus 750w is just a bit too much out of your price range...well maybe it's time you checked out Silverstone's Strider range....

(ooh, and they've got adjustable pots )
