Silverstone Strider 750w ST75F PSU

Introduction & Packaging

Introduction

Just over a month a go I was given the opportunity to review Silverstone's 600w Strider unit. Overall I was reasonably impressed, and the unit just about managed to nab our "Recommended" award.

Today I'll be taking a look at Silverstone's latest addition to their modular PSU family - the ST75F. Boasting 150w more power than the original ST60F and an extra 5% efficiency will this unit also improve on the mediocre rail stability of its predecessor?


Packaging

Having reviewed quite a few Silverstone products on Overclock3D I was fairly confident of what to expect from the ST75F. The unit comes in a double walled black cardboard box with a design that ties in with the rest of the Silverstone range.

This standardised design makes it easy to pick out Silverstone products among the other brands, and the unit's specifications are clearly visible on all sides of the box.

In all honesty, nothing much has really changed between the packaging design of the ST60F and ST75F. The front and top of the box still show pictures of the power supply along with its vital statistics. Like it's predecessor, the ST75F also has full support for ATX12v and EPS12v standards, Quad +12v rails and a quiet running 120mm fan.

Turn the box around to the side and we can see that Silverstone have included some more detailed information on the unit. A lot of focus is on its safety features, which include OCP (over current protection), UVP (under voltage protection), OVP (over voltage protection) and SCP (short circuit protection).

As with the previously reviewed ST60F, the ST75F is protected from scratches by a clear plastic bag with no other padding to protect the unit from larger knocks included. It would be nice to see Silverstone paying a bit more attention to packaging, as there is nothing worse than receiving damaged goods.

The ST75F package includes the following items:

1x Silverstone ST75F manual.
4x Black case screws.
1x Power cord.
1x ST75F Power Supply.

"In keeping up with the competition, Silverstone have added a new unit to their modular PSU range. The ST75F boasts 150w more power than its predacessor, but will it perform any better?"

Ah great, more power, sexy looks and modular cabling to boot I love my ST60F, but if one of these bad boys had been around when I was about to purchase...I would have spent the extra moolah. Great review as usual Jim, well done

Perhaps because it takes an age to get the certification?
