Are you in the market for a budget priced chassis that looks like you spent more? Introducing the PS10 case from SilverStone, a mid tower case that offers a wide variety of hardware configurations and cooling support. SilverStone frequently leans toward a more budget build of case, yet their cases don't lack for interesting character which appeals to many builders. Can the new PS10 live up to both of these expectations? Read on to find out!
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. First, a word on Silverstone for those who are new to the brand:
Introduction Up for review today on our test bench is the SilverStone Tundra TD02 AIO CPU cooler. The TD02 is SilverStone’s first attempt at breaking into the AIO liquid cooling market. Since 2003 SilverStone has been bringing us unique and quality-built products like the TJ11 computer case, which is still being modded today, and exceptional air coolers. Unlike most of the AIO coolers out there the TD02 features a 45mm thick radiator instead of your standard 25-30mm and has a copper base with a nickel-plated aluminum unibody. The copper base is also unique; most AIO blocks I’ve seen aren’t a full cover, meaning there are screws on the bottom of the block holding a lid on. Unlike those blocks, as we will see later on, the TD02 is a solid piece of copper giving us full coverage on our CPU. The SilverStone Tundra TD02 comes with 2 x 120mm PMW controlled fans that have a static pressure of 3.5mm/H20 and a max airflow of 92.5CFM. Will SilverStone’s first attempt at entering the AIO CPU cooling market be able to hang with the veterans? I guess you will have to keep reading to find out. Before we jump into the review here is a word about SilverStone:
Introduction When we think of the name Silverstone, the first thing that comes to mind is their line of PC Chassis in which they specialize. They also develop other accessories, like CPU Coolers, Power Supplies and many more. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that Silverstone has expanded their product line to meet the growing demand of multi-display solutions. With today’s growing market of gamers and professionals using multiple displays as part of their work-stations, there must be a better solution for mounting, rather than simply having two large displays just sitting on your desk. Today we are going to be looking at a new product from Silverstone that will do just that. We have the Silverstone Dual Monitor Mount, model ARM22SC. This is a clamp style dual display solution that is designed to suit the gamer or professional, by freeing up desktop space. Let’s dive in and take a closer look at the Silverstone ARM22SC Dual Monitor mount. Founded in 2003, SilverStone is an established leader in its field, with an elite team of engineers; we started our quest of providing products that create inspirations. We have since expanded the lines of products as well as types of products we produce, giving our customers a wide selection of choices. With distribution centers in different areas of the globe, SilverStone products can be seen all over the world, not just for computer users but also for home entertainment use.

A few weeks ago we took a look at SilverStone's AR01 CPU cooler from their new Argon series of coolers. We were thoroughly impressed with its price, sound levels and overall performance. The Argon series is comprised of three coolers - the AR01, AR02 and the AR03. Each looks similar at first glance but is geared towards a different end user. The AR02 is the low man on the totem pole in the lineup (as far as size is concerned) but don't think that makes him not worthwhile. SilverStone kindly sent us the AR02 to check out, so let's get to it!
SilverStone is a respected name in the component industry, and we've seen some behemoth power supplies from the company in the past. Although this one isn't a monster premium power supply like some we've seen of late, the Strider Gold 650W is 80PLUS Gold certified and comes with a price of $125. Seems good so far, so let's take a closer look at this SilverStone power supply and see how it fares.
