Final Thoughts and Conclusions

The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W power supply delivers good efficiency with clean DC outputs and good voltage regulation. Under normal operating conditions the power supply is very quiet. The Strider Gold 1200W comes with a very good assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards along with active PFC and universal AC input. My only minor complaint is the 3-year warranty period.

The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W power supply is currently available and typically sells for around $256 USD ( August 2011).
