    Arrow Silverstone ST1200-PT 1200W Review

    We're visiting the Silverstone camp for the second time in a month as we take a look at their new Strider Platinum series at 1200 watts. Aside from being Platinum, this unit boasts all the promises of a high end unit - stable power, low ripple, good build quality, and lots of included accessories. We're quickly going to discover if this unit is worth the money.

    The magnetic dust filter is a nice touch.

    Why do they love the 125°C unicon caps so much? oO
    And why 125°C at all...

    It is, but it's nothing more than that - certainly not what Silverstone needs to stay competitive in the PSU race. Like Wolfy, I'm interested/concerned to see how long they're just going to keep coasting along on their name and power density.

    Not to say this is a bad unit - it's not, and I wouldn't object to having it in my rig - it's just that it doesn't have the "wow" factor like the Seasonic Prime for example.

    Do you happen to know the reason for this "camouflage", Wolfy? Since only a handful of people are ever going to actually peel apart a PSU I can't imagine it's for aesthetics.

    Such a nice clean design and they had to screw it up with so many awg18 cables from the main pcb to the modular board... ffs use thicker cables or bus bars already.

    And that lonely blue wire being stretched across the board ... ugly.
