Specifications & Package

From SilverStone: "Reaching 1500W DC output (1600W peak), the Strider ST1500 is effectively at the limit of what an internal PC power supply can achieve in terms of wattage rating. For SilverStone, getting to this maximum power was only part of the goal for a consumer-level power supply so every desirable feature know were added to create a dream product. The list starts with unprecedented eight +12V rails with each capable of up to 25A and continues with features such as 100% modular cables, 80 PLUS Silver worthy efficiency ratings, and quietness level that matches most 500W PSUs. If there is one upgrade that will likely outlast a PC enthusiast’s interest in computing, the ST1500 may just be it."

The SilverStone Strider 1500W is packaged in a nondescript black box, complete with several photos on the box that show several major features, cables, and other such information. It’s a rather ironic result given the monster that lurks inside. The box comes with a handle at the top, and while this is a is a minor thing as you’ll likely not be carrying this thing around much outside of your case, it is a nice touch nonetheless.

When you initially open the box you’re confronted with smaller boxes that seem to fit together like a little puzzle. Everything is individually boxed and packaged extremely well, with no worries about movement or damage during transit. The accessories sufficient, with the manual, power cord, cable and screws; it’s quite an extensive bundle, certainly one of the better ones we’ve seen, and it is well presented.
