Silverstone Strider 850w ST85F PSU

Cables & Connectors

Cables & Connectors

The ST85F uses exactly the same type of cables as the ST75F. As a result, all cables on the ST75F are professionally sleeved in black mesh right up to the first connector. The sleeving is then held in place with sticky tape and finished off with black shrink-wrap.

With 850w on tap and two high-amperage +12v rails, there is no reason why the ST85F wouldn't be capable of powering any kind of high-end SLI or Crossfire configuration. For this reason Silverstone have included 2x PCI-E cables, each with 2 further PCI-E connectors 'piggy-backed' to give support for the latest line of 8800GTX GPU's. Also included in the box with the ST85F are two 8-Pin PCI-E cables in a similar configuration, for compatibility with future PCI-E cards.

The ATX connector on the ST85F is native 24-pin. However, as you can see above, a small block of 4 connectors can be broken off to switch the connector to 20-pin, and thus make it compatible with older motherboards. As many motherboards still make use of the P4-12v 4-Pin connector, Silverstone have chosen to include two separate cables for P4-12v (4-pin) and EPS12v (8-pin) standards.

"Just over 3 months ago we had the oportunity to review Silverstone's upgraded 750w model of their original 600w Strider PSU. Today we're back again to see what their latest 850w model has to offer."

I like the idea of having the 8pin cables(for future GPUs) But I am kind of sad that they dont aim higher.

I think in the 800Watt and higher market the PSs should cater to "Enthusiast" not the penny pincher bookeepers that seem to run the companies.

The PS 510 I just got has external adjustable pots for voltages. I think they should go 1 step further and add a digital gauge to it.

When I think of Silverstone I think "High End" its a shame they dont feel the same way.
