SilverStone Strider 1500W
We’ve seen a recent rise in popularity of dual GPUs, Quad CPUs, and more power hungry system components. While manufacturers are working on power efficiency for their products, the general trend has been higher energy consumption. Systems now feature more graphics cards, possibly due to their excellent output for Folding at Home, and we also see Quad Crossfire and Quad SLI setups. The need to power these systems in a stable environment is greater than ever, and the power supplies required to feed these setups are a select group of products.
Today we’re looking at the SilverStone Strider 1500W power supply, an absolute monster unit that is somewhat appropriately named if you’re a fan of the Half Life 2 gaming series. Let’s take a look at the beast and see what it brings to the mix.
