    Arrow Silverstone Strider Titanium 600W Review

    80 Plus Titanium is starting to become more and more familiar to us as the months go by, isn't it? We've seen a number of flagship models come out now bearing the certification, and they've all done rather well for themselves. Personally, I've been waiting for the smaller units to show up. 700 watts and up is relatively easy for high efficiency units, because they have a much wider operating range to optimize efficiency for... I want to see Titanium come in below that number. Well, it looks like we're starting to push that envelope today. Say hello to the Strider Titanium 600W unit. Not only is this the lowest powered Titanium I've seen yet, but it continues Silverstone's efforts on improving power density. To the load tester!

    I think i'm starting to lose more and more my faith to Enhance as an OEM that can produce high quality products
    I would gladly prefer to buy a top-notch Gold or Platinum PSU over this mediocre Titanium one.

    right at the 125mV line allowed by the ATX specification.
    Last time I checked it was 120mV.

    If you can give up Titanium, the Coolermaster V650 is the same depth, also fully modular, and $30 cheaper
    The Cooler Master V650 is a bit of a joke with one PEG cable with only two connectors.

    Taking the price into consideration, I'll take Raidmax's RX-700AT for $20 less and better performance.

    IMO they probably just didn't use enough filter caps. Some units have like a gazillion on the modular connector board. And with the small form factor, they had to cut somewhere.

    Not really an answer to my question but okey thanks anyway.

    I really want to write about these telling everyone to stay away but i refuse to pretty much destroy sales for an entire series just because of one bad one off.

    If i am going to do somethintg i need confirmed data i can trust and point at saying look at how bad this is and for that i need more then just one.

    It's not like it's a hazardous unit.

    Could be a problem with his PSU only. The 800W version based on the same platform did a lot better on Hexus. http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/psu/91...m-800w/?page=7
