Today, I'm having a look at SilverStone's newest modular power supply: The Strider ST75F.
The ST75F is the next model up in the Strider line from the 600W ST60F unit. Like the ST60F, the ST75F is manufactured for SilverStone by Enhance Electronics.
Upon opening the box of the Strider, we are first greeted by a manual. SilverStone manuals are nice in that they give us pretty useful information, and they're typically more detailed and technical than most power supply company's manuals. Inside we find cross loading graphs, ripple voltage test circuit diagrams... really fun stuff!
Once we remove the manual from the box, we can see the power supply. SilverStone attaches all of the modular cables to the housing when they ship the Strider units, so there's no separate box or nylon bag to hold the cables in.
The Strider comes in a black steel housing with a 120MM fan. The "SilverStone" logo is stamped into the top of the power supply. On the back of the unit is a large grill, while the front of the unit has the modular interface and a large decal displaying all of the receptacles of the interface and what each connector is to be used for.
Above and below are a couple pictures of the modular interface and the cables that come out of it.
Below I've taken all of the cables out of the modular interface so we can see the female receptacles.
Here's an inventory of the cables that come with the Strider ST75F:
