Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The SilverStone Strider Plus ST60F-PS power supply is one of the smallest modular ATX power supplies on the market today. It easily delivered 600W combined DC load with good voltage regulation and good AC ripple suppression, even at full load. The ST60F-PS also delivered 80Plus Silver efficiencies while operating on 115VAC line voltage and easily met the 80Plus Gold criteria when operating on 240VAC.
The Strider Plus ST60F-PS PSU is currently available and comes with an MSRP of $105 USD ($95 with mail in rebate at Amazon.com, March 2013).
