Today, we get a chance to look at Silverstone’s latest power supply. The power supply is the Strider Gold Evolution which comes in various wattages which would include: 750W, 850W, 1000W and 1200W. The model we were sent was the 850W unit which is plenty large enough for most. But for those that do need than Silverstone has you covered. The entire series is modular which I know everyone will love and very quiet.
The Strike X line is aimed at the hard-core gamer. And looking at the Strike X 800W power supply is evidence of that. This new “X” themed power supply offers many of the protections that other manufacturers offer but in a casing that is on another level. A blend of red and black makes the Strike X perfect for those that are into case modding or simply want their PC to stand out visually.
Thank God we have companies like OCZ and many others that is dedicated to giving the consumer what they want. We have reviewed many of OCZ’s power supplies over the years and have yet to be disappointed. Today, we got a hold of their newest power unit which does boast 1000 watts of available power but that is not the only good point of this new beast. Besides all the numbers we will be talking about in the review, the cables themselves are what we like.
Enermax dedication to excellence has continued on through their products since then. We have seen it in the MaxRevo and Platimax, hopefully in our next review subject, the Revolution87+. When building high-end machines, the power supply is often considered the heartbeat of the machine. And with that being said you cannot go cheap or use inferior units when investing a nice sum of money into a PC.
Thermaltake is claiming that the new Smart series power supply is just that. The Smart series is only offered in a non-modular version for now. But the power range within the spectrum of everybody building a system from basic web browsing to gaming that reason is 430 to 730 watts.
Many of you many remember back when we reviewed the NZXT HALE90 Gold rated power supply. An awesome modular unit that came in a nice white paint job. The high quality parts as well as the efficiency rating made it a big winner but also made it a bit on the expensive side. Well, NZXT is at it again with a new Bronze rated PSU that should be easier on everyone’s pocket.
