The company continues to add SilverStone Strider series power supply units, most of which are characterized by a modular connecting cables. In June, the Taiwanese manufacturer introduced a device Strider Essential nominal value of 400-700 W, designed for an input voltage of 230 V and having neotsoedinyaemye cables. Now came the turn of a much more substantial (and obviously more expensive) Strider Platinum blocks. New items with code designations SST-ST1000-PT (1000 W) and SST-ST1200-PT (1200 W) headed aforesaid family, all models which marked 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency certificate.
According to the resource information RealHardTechX , the new ATX-compatible (version of the standard ATX12V – 2.4) power supplies use OEM-platform by Enhance Electronics, while the previous Strider Platinum series devices (except SST-ST85-PT nominal value of 850 W) based on the boards prepared Sirtec. BP length is 180 mm, weight – 3.3 kg
units support an input voltage range from 100 to 240 (from SST-ST1200-PT bottom bracket -. 115 ), have an active power factor correction mechanism, protected against over-current, overload, over-voltage, under-voltage, over-temperature and short circuit. Stated levels of efficiency in the networks 230 at a load of 20% to 100% ranges from 91% to 93%. Maximum continuous load on the 1-kW power supply for the +12 V line must not exceed 83 A / 996 watts. In older models “strength” 12-volt channel above – 100 A / 1200 watts. Allowable deviation of +3.3 V, +5 V and +12 V – no more than 3% (according to Specification )
power units have detachable flat cables in black and equipped with 139-mm fan SilverStone Air Penetrator. He is protected by a removable dust filter magnets FF141. “Propeller” starts at PSU power about 40% of the nominal value and rotates at a speed of ~ 900-1600 rev / min, making noise in the range of 18-36 dBA. Due to the nature Enhance platform at a temperature environment above 40 ° C the fan can operate in a much more aggressive mode.
Strider Platinum Models 1000 and 1200 W are different cable configuration (connectors ) supply. The younger PSU has the following set of connectors (20 + 4) pin ATX, two (4 + 4)-pin EPS12V, six (6 + 2)-pin PCI-E Power, sixteen SATA Power, six 4-pin Molex and two FDD Power. His fellow SST-ST1200-PT has two additional PCI-E Power with the same number of contacts (8 pcs.).
The cost and timing of the beginning of global sales Strider Platinum blocks 1000/1200 W information has yet been received. Both are accompanied by a 5-year warranty from the manufacturer
