WHAT WE LIKED:

850W PSU: Near absolute silent operation, strong rail for consistent power delivery, plenty of cables with plenty of length, flat cables for easy management, fully modular, very competitive pricing, good component selection, clean layout, very informative manuals. PP07 cable extensions: Mostly exceptionally well sleeved, sleeving has consistent and tight weave, perfect length, universal PSU compatibility, good range of colors for most systems, easy to shape
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

850W PSU: cables were a bit difficult to place into hardware connectors on first use, blue PCI-E connectors at the PSU can be distracting. PP07 cable extensions: SATA sleeving a bit baggy
 
BOTTOM LINE:
PSU: If you need a small, strong and reliable PSU with great efficiency, the Silverstone Strider 850W PSU should always be a consideration. Cable Extensions: For an easy-to-install and reasonably priced custom look inside your case, look no further than the PP07 Braided Cable Extensions

Introduction

 

One of the most common questions we ask when working on a new computer build is “what power supply (PSU) should I get?” Often times it can be a tricky decision, as many manufacturers make the same claims as one another. What can compound this decision-making process is the amount of space you have to work with in your rig. If you are building a smaller form-factor PC, the size of your PSU can limit the total wattage you can get in your PSU as well, which can confound you even more.

 

Silverstone is here to tell you that size doesn’t mean everything, and that you can have your cake and eat it, too. Enter their Strider Gold S series power supplies, which are labeled as not only the world’s smallest ATX power supplies, but are also rated to supply as much as 850W of peak output power. For today’s review, we have their top dog on hand: rated at 80 Plus Gold certification and being fully modular with a silent operating 120mm fan and 850W of total power output, we’ll see if this PSU lives up to Silverstone’s legendary quality. We will also be taking a quick look at their new line of PP07 braided cable extensions for those of you who are simply not satisfied with plain looking cables, but lack the skill/time/patience to do your own custom braiding.
