The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W is a power supply that delivers solid features and performance and does it in style as well. From a functional standpoint, the Strider has excellent voltage regulation and efficiency, requiring an insanely hungry system to tax this beast. With a single +12V rail and 100 Amps available here, you’ll need a system with components worth a small fortune, along with an insanely insatiable appetitie for power and speed, just to make this Strider stand up and take notice. And stand up it does, easily handling its workload like a vacuous hole, sucking up everything you toss at it.

The Strider Gold 1200W is also very user-friendly for daily 24/7 operation, running very quietly when idle and load, with the fan managing to keep noise levels impressively low. A wide assortment of sleeved modular cables that support the latest multiple SLI/CrossFire setups, an easy-to-use connection design, a unique scratch-resistant finish further add to the positives here. The cable lengths here are also very generous, notable for those who have full tower cases and are very particularly about their cable management. And with an 80 PLUS Gold rating, this beast is impressively efficient.

This quality and performance doesn’t come cheap, as one can expect, with the Strider Gold 1200W retailing for approximately $290 at major online vendors, making it one of the more expensiveunits in this power range that are 80PLUS Gold certified. However, you do get top performance and SilverStone’s impeccable reliability for that. A purchase like this is indeed an investment, so the mindset is entirely different from mere mortals who "only" need something like a 750W power supply.

The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W is an monster power supply in just about every conceivable manner of criteria: it’s feature-rich, strong, durable, and sexy. It can handle anything you can muster, and will provide rock solid stability and power for your most precious system. The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W is an elite power supply for very demanding users, and if you’re one of the lucky few who has the need and budget for one, congratulations to you, and you won’t be disappointed here.
