Silverstone Strider 850w ST85F PSU
Published: 30th January 2007 | Source: Silverstone | Price: |Introduction
Back in October, Silverstone gave me the first look at their latest 750w modular power supply named the ST75F. This PSU proved to be a big improvement over its predecessor the ST60F, but still suffered from some of its original flaws. Today we're back again, and this time looking at the ST85F. In case you hadn't already guessed, the ST85F is the latest in the line of Silverstone's modular units, based around the ST60F and ST75F but with a total power output of 850w and a few extra tweaks along the way.
Visually the ST85F is the same as its predecessors in almost every way (externally at least), and for this reason I'd suggest that anybody who has already read our ST75F review should turn to pages 5, 6 & 7 to avoid a severe case of Déjà Vu. Over these few pages I'll be finding out what changes have been made internally, and if they have had any effect on the power supply's performance.
Having reviewed quite a few Silverstone products on Overclock3D I was fairly confident of what to expect from the ST85F. The unit comes in a double walled black cardboard box with a design that ties in with the rest of the Silverstone range.
This standardised design makes it easy to pick out Silverstone products among the other brands, and the unit's specifications are clearly visible on all sides of the box.
The ST85F package includes the following items:
• Silverstone ST85F manual.
• Black case screws.
• Power cord.
• ST85F Power Supply.
• Canvas cable bag.
