    Default Silverstone Strider Gold S Series 850W PSU and PP07 Cable Extensions

    One of the most common questions we ask when working on a new computer build is "what power supply (PSU) should I get?" Often times it can be a tricky decision, as many manufacturers make the same claims as one another. What can compound this decision-making process is the amount of space you have to work with in your rig. If you are building a smaller form-factor PC, the size of your PSU can limit the total wattage you can get in your PSU as well, which can confound you even more. Silverstone is here to tell you that size doesn't mean everything, and that you can have your cake and eat it, too. Enter their Strider Gold S series power supplies, which are labeled as not only the world's smallest ATX power supplies, but are also rated to supply as much as 850W of peak output power. For today's review, we have their top dog on hand: rated at 80 Plus Gold certification and being fully modular with a silent operating 120mm fan and 850W of total power output, we'll see if this PSU lives up to Silverstone's legendary quality. We will also be taking a quick look at their new line of PP07 braided cable extensions for those of you who are simply not satisfied with plain looking cables, but lack the skill/time/patience to do your own custom braiding. First, a word on Silverstone for those who are new to the brand:

    Very nice review Mike. Good job on your first PSU review. Love those cables. They did a great job of making them look good. Not that cheap plastic sleeving crap.

    Thanks all. This review was actually extremely challenging to write up... but mostly because of technical difficulties I had with WordPress. BIG HUGE GINORMOUS thanks to Sandy for helping me figure out that WordPress doesn't like certain things because it derps the herp x-).

    You all haven't seen the last of those cables, either. They are going into a mod project that I will be working on as I get the supplies in for it. Still calling out to all hands on deck for any cable grommets anyone has lying around that will fit a Graphite 600T or are of the same size from another case! I need four if ya got 'em... just trying to avoid paying for all 8 or so that you can order from the Corsair site x-)
