The cable summary may look short, but don't let that fool you. The power supply is fully modular and aside from the main and dual ATX 4+4 connectors, it also has 8 PCI-E connectors, 16 SATA connectors, 6 Molex connectors, and two FDD. It is too bad that the FDD connectors aren't included as adapters as it ruins what would be a nearly perfect list of connectors and cables.
As there is only a single 12V rail there isn't much to say here other than 100A is quite bit of power for a single rail. We've seen it work fine before, so we aren't too worried.
A Look Inside
Opening the unit, we find that SilverStone has included a little more cooling than we usually see in a unit and with good reason. 1200W will create quite a bit of heat and sufficient cooling is the key to making these higher wattage units work well.
A pair of Nippon Chemi-Con caps cover the primary side of the SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution.
More Nippon Chemi-Con can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.
Cooling for the unit is provided by SilverStone's own HA125M12F-Z fan. The grill you see in the back side of the fan is why they call this a "penetrating" fan. SilverStone claims that this helps direct the air downward instead of it going off to the sides. It did a good job keeping the acoustics low and the PSU cool.
