The Silverstone Strider 850W is a power supply designed with gamers in mind. It comes with a modularity feature and allows up to eight PCI-Express video card connectors to be used. As fan a 135mm variant is employed, together with the high efficiency of 80%+ it allows the unit to be very quiet, considering the maximum power output of 850W.

This PSU only give 4 Amps more than the Thermaltake ToughPower 750w. If you can find it for cheaper, it is a better idea.

62A with both combines and 35A A piece. I have alot to learn about powersupplies, amperage and how they calculate. For instance 420+420+180 is 1020W, but its max is 850. See, that throws me off.

However, top notch review as always W1zz. I love it. Good Psu but the price is a bit high.

Druken: It's a nice option if you want to run a dual PSU solution, there ATX connector would just be in the way.
