SilverStone feels like a house name here at TweakTown. We have covered almost every single product they have offered to consumers in the last five years or more. They have something for everyone ranging from entry level to enthusiast, and mainstream to niche. This carries into the power supply line as well. Need an SFX power supply? No problem. Need a high-end unit for your server? They've got that too!
The unit that we have on our bench today is the SilverStone SST-ST75F-GS. It is one of the latest in the line of short but modular units. SilverStone claims it to have the same output quality of their other units, which is certainly something that we've come to like throughout the years. This means voltage regulation and ripple should be within 3% of ATX specifications when all is said and done. These are the kind of claims that I love to see manufacturers make as they are easy to test and see if they are trying to pull a fast one over consumers.
Let's start looking at this one on paper so we can get to the testing sooner.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Most of the I/O specifications for the ST75F-GS are quite typical of what you'd find in a 750W power supply. The ST75F-GS features a single 12V rail that is rated for 83.3A or 99.2% of the rated output of the entire power supply. The 3.3V rail is rate for 22A, while the 5V rail is rated for 25A with a combined maximum output of 150W. The ST75F-GS has a 3.5A 5VSB rail rated for 17.5W. Combined maximum output of the ST75F-GS is 750W.
SilverStone always makes sure that you get plenty of features when buying one of their power supplies. The ST75F-GS power supply features a full suite of protections including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP, and OTP. The ST75F-GS 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 series is not rated for 100% continuous output at 50C, but is at 40C.
SilverStone has an MSRP of $134.99. That places this priced right in the middle of the 750W crowd. This doesn't give it much of an edge against the competition as it doesn't have any special features or specifications that make it stand out from everything else. SilverStone will stand behind the ST75F-GS with their three-year warranty.
