The SilverStone Strider Plus 850W power supply enclosure is painted matte black and is 160mm (6.3”) deep.  It uses a single 135mm fan on the bottom for cooling.  The dual ball bearing Young Lin Tech Co. Ltd. fan (DFB13512H) is designed to provide excellent airflow and cooling with minimal noise.

The Strider PSU does not have a master On-Off switch on the back panel.  There is of course an AC receptacle along with an open honeycomb grill that allows the exhaust air to exit the power supply with little resistance.

Around on the other end, the front panel incorporates 11 modular cable connectors. They are color coded and keyed so only the proper cables will plug into their corresponding sockets.
