Silverstone Strider Gold Evolution 750W PSU Introduction

Silverstone might be a new company, about to celebrate their 10th birthday a few months from now, yet their rate of growth has been astounding. The company started off as a high quality case manufacturer but their vast success allowed them to quickly diversify into other segments of the market. Thus, today Silverstone produces not only cases but also power supplies, cooling related products and accessories. It is one of their most popular PSUs which we will be having a look at today, the ST75F-G Strider Gold Evolution 750W, a fully modular design aiming to please very demanding users. We will find out whether it succeeds or not in this review.

The ST75F-G

Even though Silverstone initially focused their corporate strategy on computer cases and case-related products, ironically their very first products were two power supplies, the pioneers of the Strider range of products. They have come a long way since then, with many revisions and upgrades to their products.
