    Default Preview: Silverstone Strider Titanium 600 W @ HWI

    We have recently informed about the newly launched Silverstone Strider Titanium 600 W (SST-ST60F-TI) unit. And here we have a sample! The unit is both the smallest Titanium unit on the market, and also the one with lowest rated power to yet achieve this efficiency. The Chinese Great Wall already has 550W unit certified, but I don’t think it was ever on sale; similar situation is with 600W unit from Super Flower. This model is already on sale and with square dimensions of 150 × 86 × 150 it is almost of the original ATX size. It is not yet on Czech market, but in Germany it can be found from 140 Eur (255 AUD in Australia or 180 USD in the US). The warranty from Silverstone however only is three years.

    Since this unit's OEM is Sirtec, i'm very interested to see the results from the Power_OK signal tests! (*Sirtec has created a bad tradition on this sector!!)

    This model could be Enhance made. I don't think it's Sirfa.

    Yes it is Enhance as has been later found I guess. But it is a disappointment for me being Enhance, I expected much better results being all high-end and Titanium. The built quality is bad, I have not seen so many solder balls ever, not even in chinese el-cheapo units. The hold-up time is as bad as with Sirtec units. And the voltage regulation, oh my. Here goes.

    I see that you finally decided to change your scoring methodology and remove the "%" scale from your final score.
    This is a move towards the right direction i believe, but also a rather delayed move as well !!

    Voltage regulation is more than appropriate and ripple is just fantastic according to your test.

    BTW I started to think that hold up time tests (your one as well as Aris test) might be rethinked, given the fact so many units fail: is it really important?
    I mean, are there evidences of hw failures due to rails out of specs in blackout/brown out scenarios?

    Outright failure would be rare, since undervolted silicon will simply error out but physically remain fine. The trouble is that VRMs in hardware will attempt to work with too low input voltage and that does strain the components as the duty cycle will be increased causing more heat to be produced. Rapid changes in the current flow through the VRM silicon will also leave a mark. How many of those each individual regulator can take is anyone's guess. Could be tens of thousands of DC brownouts, could be hundreds. Care to donate some random modern hardware for us to abuse?
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Hold on a sec The -12V rail, which already has more than enough margin of error by having +-10% regulation, not being able to maintain even that, is more than appropriate? Wut? That is the worst I have ever seen from high-end unit

    As for the HUT, when it is dangerously low there is a chance that at least older and somewhat worn-out UPS won't help keeping the PC running when there is some micro blackout. That would mean restart of the PC. I think that setting the minimum to 10 ms while the spec calls for 16/17 is more than generous, isn't it?

    sith'ari: you may want to check reviews back since october 2015

    As you wrote there:
    ...the unit showed great load regulation as the voltage stayed the same basically the whole time. This is the best load regulation I have ever seen... the -12 V rail to start low. Damn too low… It does not even meet ATX specification... am aware that this rail has basically no use in the real world anymore...

    Well, to me that's enough to call it "more than appropriate".
    Best, Luca
