SilverStone's Strider series has been with us for quite a while and tends to be among the better PSUs around. The new Strider Gold S provides 850W of power, with up to 70A on the 12V and four 6+2 PCIe power connectors for multiple GPUs. All of that power comes in a package a mere 150x86x150 mm, barely enough to fit the 120mm fan. [H]ard|OCP strapped it to their torture devices and saw that it could outperform even some of its close relatives in the Strider family. Not only does it get a pass, it picks up a Silver Award on its way.
"Good things come in small packages and SilverStone continues its Gold S series with smaller fully modular footprints at the 850 watt power level. SilverStone claims Gold level efficiency, tight voltage regulation, a single rail design, low fan noise, and plenty of PCIe outlets. All the things that SilverStone is famous for. "
