Silverstone Strider 600w ST60F Modular PSU
Published: 4th September 2006 | Source: Silverstone | Price: |Conclusion
The Silverstone Strider 600w ST60F is a great unit with desirable features such as adjustable rails and a fully modular cabling system. Selling for just under £90 over at SpecialTech, the ST60F is slightly cheaper than most of the other high-end 600w modular PSU's on the market.
These excellent qualities are only let down by its mediocre performance in the voltage stability tests, which in realistic terms are highly unlikely to cause an problems - but fall short of the results we've obtained from other Silverstone units in the past.
The measured efficiency of the unit is slightly higher than the figures given by Silverstone which is a bonus, however most modern power supplies including modular units from other manufacturers have managed at least 80% efficiency and it would be nice to see a revised version of this power supply designed with high efficiency in mind.
+ Fully modular cabling system
+ Plenty of connectors
+ Adjustable rails
+ Professionally sleeved
- Rail stability not as good as other Silverstone PSU's.
- Efficiency not on par with previously tested units.
