SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 1000-watt Power Supply Review - Cabling Arrangement and A Look Inside

We take our final look at the SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution series to find out if the 1000W model is a good compromise between the 850W and 1200W models.

Cabling Arrangement

The ST1000-G Evolution remains 100% modular. It has the standard 20+4 pin Main connector as well as dual ATX4+4 connectors. PCI-E Connectors come in the form of two 6+2 pin cables and two cables with one 6+2 pin and one 6 pin connectors. Peripherals connections are handled by a total of 8 SATA, 6 Molex and 2 FDD connectors over four cables. Those seeking shorter cables will be interested in the PP05 short cable kit.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail.

 

 

A Look Inside

SilverStone uses the same heatsinks that are used on all models in the series and provide more than sufficient cooling for this unit.

A pair of Nippon Chemi-Con caps covers the primary side of the SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 1000W.

Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.

Cooling for the unit is provided by the same SilverStone's HA1425L12F-Z fan. SilverStone claims the grill increases airflow and reduces fan noise. We could not discern the power supply above the noise of our test equipment and never had any problems with temperatures during testing.
