    Default SilverStone Strider Gold S 1500W review @ Tomshardware

    The ST1500-GS belongs to the Strider Gold S series, which includes five units with capacities ranging from 550 W to 1500 W. According to SilverStone, this line includes the world's smallest, fully modular ATX PSUs. This seems like an accurate claim; the ST1500-GS is very compact for a 1500 W unit, while the ST85F-GS measures in at only 15 cm depth and the rest of the Strider Gold S series units are just 14 cm long. In addition, all Strider Gold S PSUs feature Gold efficiency, which might not be considered high-end anymore, but this is still high enough for the majority of users. Moreover, Gold PSUs are now offered at reasonable prices, which in many cases come out to be significantly lower than their Platinum and Titanium counterparts.

    Mediocre ripple values from this one
    Since the OEM of this unit is Enhance, can anyone compare the 2 Enhance-made platforms? :
    1.ST1500-GS http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ly,4208-3.html and
    2.Tt GRAND Platinum 850 http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory5&reid=415
    I'm asking this question because of the ripple large differences between the 2 platforms.
    -Is Enhance using an older platform at the Silverstone model compared to the one used at Thermaltake model ?

    I wouldn't call the ripple suppresion mediocre, it's good but not the best.

    The reason for the higher ripple is probably because it's a higher wattage model. More power means that its more difficult to get perfect performance.

    So the 2 platforms are of similar quality then? (*i don't think that they are identical from what i could notice )
    What do you think?

    Though they look like two different platforms, I think that there isn't any noticeable difference in ripple/noise suppression: by the way, if you look at the 50% value on Aris' review (so at about 750W DC), and to the relevant Paul-Spectre's one as well, you'll notice it's likely better than the equivalent TT figures reported by Jeremy-Wolf.

    http://hardocp.com/article/2015/02/2...1200w_review/3 gives you some better view.

    They don't look identical, but the changes looks to be minor. They changed the 5V en 3,3V VRMs from the main PCB to the modular PCB, and rearrange some other parts and of course beefed up some parts. The rearranging is probably because of the small size, otherwise they're close.
