SilverStone has always been well known for their quality power supplies, and rightfully so. When the company was founded in 2003, their first products available were power supplies and shortly thereafter, cases. Since then the company has flourished building upon their strong company policies of outstanding design, perfect quality and customer satisfaction. And they now have a wide range of products to fulfill your computing needs.
Today we get to take a look at one of their latest power supplies. The Strider Plus Series ST1000-P is a fully modular 1000W power supply that boasts exceptional voltage regulation, a single 12V rail and a compact size to allow for a high wattage power supply in some of the smaller and tighter cases. Read on to see how well the ST1000-P performs in our full range of tests and if it is worthy of your hard earned cash.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
SilverStone chose to supply 12V power via a single rail in the ST1000-P and provides plenty of power on the 3.3V and 5V rails as well. With very few exceptions, the ST1000-P has all the power you will need for almost any rig under any conditions.
SilverStone packs the ST1000-P full of features and makes sure that you get plenty for your money. It lists for a price of $199.99, but a quick search will yield cheaper results at most e-tailers including Newegg which is shifting it for $184.99 at the time of writing. The ST1000-P has all the features that we look for, including all the power protections and an 80 Plus Silver certification. Note that while the ST1000-P does not have a 50C rating, it is rated at 40C for 1000W continuous output.
