Silverstone Strider 750w ST75F PSU

Appearance

Appearance

When Silverstone set out to improve upon the ST60F series their sights were firmly set on performance rather than looks. As a result, the ST75F and ST60F units are almost identical with only minor revisions being made to the ST75F's casing.

The ST75F is finished in a matt black lead-free paint and has a minimal amount of shine. As you can see from above, the sample unit I received had several scratches in its paintwork. Could this be a result of the sub-par packaging?

The layout of the ST75F is exactly the same as the ST60F and as a result sports the same 120mm fan placed slightly off centre at the bottom of the unit.

The back of the unit is vented with a honeycomb mesh and you may also notice that there is no 110/240v switch present. This is because the ST75F, like many other modern PSU's is able to auto-detect the input voltage.

On the top of the ST75F we can see one unique feature that enables you to easily distinguish it from the ST60F - an embossed Silverstone logo. This adds a nice personalised touch to the unit, but unfortunately most of us will not see this side of the unit once it is placed inside an ATX case.

Turn the unit around to the side and we can see that Silverstone have provided adjustable potentiometers (pots) positioned behind two small holes in the casing. Pot's can be used to adjust the voltage output of the rails on the power supply, and can come in handy when voltages droop outside of ATX specifications.

The front of the ST75F comes with a total of 11 modular connectors, which is significantly more than some of the other modular power supplies we've reviewed on OC3D in the past. You will also notice that the ST75F is fully modular, and therefore all cables including the ATX and EPS connectors can be removed if required.

"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

Yeah, its an Etasis afaik. The internals are a fair bit better than the previous ST60F tho.

Perhaps because it takes an age to get the certification?
