Earlier this year, we looked at the SilverStone ST75F-GS power supply. It proved to be a good unit, but it just didn't have anything that really made it stand out. The unit provided decent power at a decent price and that was about it. SilverStone obviously knew that the ST75F-GS PSU just needed a bit more and that's why they've already revamped the unit and brought the ST75F-GS V2 to market.
The Strider Gold S Series ST75F-GS V2 is an entirely new platform despite sharing the same series name as the original. It has many of the same features as the original, but has a smaller footprint and better build quality. The output specifications for the unit are also slightly different, which is to be expected since the unit is of a different platform.
We'll go over all of the differences one at a time as we go through the review, so let's just get started with the paper specs.
Specifications, Availability, & Pricing
The SilverStone ST75F-GS V2 features a single 12V rail rated for 62.5A or 750W. This is a .5A gain over the original. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for 22A each with a combined maximum output of 120W, which is down 30W from what we previously saw with the V1 unit. The 5VSB rail is rated for 3.0A or 15W, which again is down from the first iteration of the unit. Maximum combined output for the ST75F-GS V2 is 750W.
Nothing changes for the ST75F-GS V2 when comparing features to the original. The ST75F-GS V2 power supply features a full suite of protections including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP, and OTP. The ST75F-GS V2 is rated for 80 PLUS Gold efficiency. The power supply is fully modular and all cables are of the flat ribbon type. Finally, the ST75F-GS V2 series is not rated for 100% continuous output at 50C, but is at 40C.
SilverStone has an MSRP of $134.99. Again, this places the unit right in the middle of the 750W crowd. This doesn't give it much of an edge against the competition, as it still doesn't have any special features or specifications that make it stand out from everything else. SilverStone stands behind the ST75F-GS V2 with a three-year warranty.
