SilverStone Strider Platinum PTS World's Smallest Kilowatt-class PSUs

SilverStone today released what it calls the world's smallest Kilowatt-class PSUs. The new Strider Platinum series ST1200-PTS and ST1000-PTS are fully-modular PSUs with a physical depth of only 14 cm. You typically find 650~750W PSUs this small. As their model names suggest, these units pack a wallop, with 1200W and 1000W continuous outputs, respectively. Both units are HEDT-friendly, with two 4+4 pin EPS power connectors, in addition to a 24-pin ATX, and eight 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors. You also get up to eight SATA power and six 4-pin Molex.

Under the hood, the units feature a single +12V rail design, with 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, active PFC, ±3% regulation and low ripple, and most common electrical protections, against over/under-voltage, over/under-current, overheat, overload, surge, and short-circuit. The units are cooled by a 120 mm hybrid ceramic bearing fan, which spins below 1000 RPM up to 50% load, with a minimum noise output of 18 dBA, and only then begins to ramp up. SilverStone is including a dust-filter to go with the air-intakes of these PSUs. The 1000W model is priced at USD $209.99, and the 1200W model at $239.99.

SilverStone Starts Shipping the SX700-G SFX Power Supply

SilverStone began shipping the SX700-G, the most powerful power supply in the SFX form-factor, with a nameplate capacity of 700W. This unit is designed for compact builds with bleeding-edge hardware, including up to two high-end graphics cards. Its fully modular cabling includes four 6+2 pin PCIe power, one 4+4 pin EPS, a 24-pin ATX, six SATA power, three Molex, and a Berg. Under the hood, the SX700-G features a single +12V rail design, with 700W output rated just for this 58.4A rail; and 110W for the +3.3V and +5V rails. The unit boasts of 80 Plus Gold efficiency.

Besides active PFC, you get most common electrical protections, against over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. Keeping things cool is a 92 mm fan with fluid-dynamic bearing, with a minimum noise output of 18 dBA. SilverStone will first release the SX700-G in North America around mid-December, with availability in Europe following two weeks after that. In the US, it will be priced at USD $159.99, AUD $179.99 Down Under, and 139.99€ (excluding VAT) in the EU.

SilverStone Intros FW124-ARGB Slimline 120mm Fan

Continuing on its streak of releasing slimline 120 mm fans, SilverStone rolled out the FW124-ARGB. This 120 mm spinner is 15 mm thick instead of the usual 25 mm, leaving you with more room in SFF cases. The fan features the same 9-blade impeller design with blade-integrated guide-vanes as the FN124 from last week; but backs it with a more premium fluid-dynamic bearing instead of sleeved. The impeller is made of frosted, translucent polycarbonate instead of opaque black, because it has to diffuse the six addressable RGB LEDs studded in the impeller hub. These LEDs take in standardized 3-pin addressable RGB input. The motor is more advanced, and takes in 4-pin PWM input instead of 3-pin DC. The fan spins between 800 to 2,000 RPM, while pushing 13.1 to 32.6 CFM of air-flow, with a proportionate noise output ranging between 14.7 to 24.6 dBA. The fan is rated for 50,000 hours of life. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Intros FN124 Slimline 120mm Fan

SilverStone introduced the FN124, a slimline 120 mm case fan, with a thickness of 15 mm instead of the conventional 25 mm. The fan features a 9-blade impeller with reinforcing secondary blades. The motor takes in 3-pin (DC) power input. and features sleeved bearing with 40,000-hour rated lifespan. The fan spins at speeds of up to 1,500 RPM, pushing up to 25.06 CFM of air, with 18 dBA typical noise output. Expect this one to be priced around $15.

SilverStone Rolls Out Raven-Z RVZ03-ARGB SFF Case with Addressable RGB Lighting

SilverStone today rolled out the Raven-Z RVZ03-ARGB small-form-factor gaming case. With a volume of just 14 liters, and measuring 382 mm x 105 mm x 350 mm (WxHxD), the case serves up enough room for dual-slot graphics cards that are up to 33 cm in length, and oriented sideways via an included PCIe riser cable. The case holds mini-ITX motherboards, with room for CPU coolers as tall as 83 mm. A standard ATX power supply up to 15 cm in length is supported, though a 3-pin AC receptacle and riser.

Storage options of the RVZ03-ARGB include three internal 2.5-inch mounts. Cooling includes three 120 mm vents, from which two are populated by 1,500 RPM, 18 dBA fans. Front panel connectivity includes USB 3.1 type-A ports, and HDA audio jacks. The star-attraction here of course is the addressable-RGB LED diffuser that dominates a somewhat X-shaped embellishment along the front panel. The light strip is either controlled by a small PCB cycling between presets, or can plug into your motherboard via a standard ARGB header, for software control. The case comes in two color options, matte black and white.

SilverStone Intros Strider Gold S (2018) Line of PSUs

SilverStone today expanded the Strider Gold S line of PSUs almost five years since the series made its debut with 750W and 850W models. The company today got around to launching new 550W and 650W models. Both 80 Plus Gold-certified PSUs feature fully modular cabling, and a body length of just 140 mm. Some of their innards have modernized since their older siblings, including ATX v2.4 support, and support for the latest processor lower C-states. For both these models, only the +12V is counted toward their nameplate Wattage, and both come with 100W +3.3V and +5V.

The 550W model comes with two 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, while the 650W model comes with four. The 650W comes with a few more Molex connectors than the 550W model. Both offer single 4+4 pin EPS, and eight SATA power, besides the obligatory 24-pin ATX. The units are cooled by 120 mm fans. Under the hood, you get single +12V rail design, active PFC, and most common electrical protections, against over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. The company didn't specify pricing.

SilverStone Intros Tundra RGB Series Liquid CPU Coolers

SilverStone today introduced the Tundra RGB series all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, with the TD-02 RGB and the TD-03 RGB. These aren't mere RGB refits of the TD-02 and TD-03, but complete redesigns to the Asetek platform. You now get the swivel fittings that Asetek holds patents on, along with completely redesigned pump-blocks and radiators. The TD-03 RGB features a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator, while the TD-02 RGB comes with 240 mm x 120 mm; both with 32 mm thickness, and a ridged aluminium radiator-fin design that improves heat dissipation. RGB LED lighting extends to not just a company logo on top of the pump-block, but also the included radiator fans. The included fans spin between 600 to 2,200 RPM, take PWM input, push up to 83.7 CFM of air, with a noise output of 15.3 to 34.8 dBA, each. Among the current-generation CPU sockets supported are LGA115x, LGA2066, and AM4.

SilverStone ECM23 is an M.2 Riser+Heatsink Letting You Slot-in Your Drives Like Cartridges

The ECM23 from SilverStone is one of the more interesting M.2-PCIe SSD risers to come out in recent times. It looks like a game cartridge from 1980s, and slots into one of your PCI-Express x16 slots, which it then uses to wire out an M.2-2280 M-key slot with PCIe x4 wiring. The riser itself has x16 interface, but beyond x4, all the other lanes are blank, and only serve to add retention, since the riser doesn't feature an add-on card bracket to hold it in place. The main PCB has no logic of its own, other than link/activity LEDs for the four PCIe lanes.

It's more optimal to use drives with all their hot components on one side, since that side has access to the chunky ~40 g main heatsink. Heat from the other side is drawn from a copper mesh printed on the PCB, which supposedly conveys it to the back side, which has an aluminium back-plate, which bolts onto the main heatsink, sandwiching the PCB and drive in the middle. Measuring 105 mm (W) x 11 mm (H) x 44 mm (D), the ECM23 weighs 52 g (excluding the weight of your drive). The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Intros LSB02 Addressable RGB + Fan Controller with Remote

SilverStone introduced the LSB02, a box that you tuck away behind your motherboard tray to control not just your addressable-RGB lighting, but also fans, using an RF remote control. The controller puts out six 3-pin ARGB ports, which can each address up to 72 LEDs; and four 4-pin (PWM) fan control channels. Power is drawn from a 4-pin Molex connector. There's also an included thermal probe that can be tucked into your CPU cooler. For those apprehensive about using magnetic mounts behind the motherboard, SilverStone has included adhesive Velcro pads. Measuring 65mm (W) x 23mm (H) x 109mm (D), the box weighs about 72 g.

SilverStone Intros Fans and Fan-Frames with Addressable RGB Illumination

SilverStone this Computex released a trio of fans, in addition to fan accessories, which feature addressable RGB LED illumination. The lineup begins with the FW124-ARGB, which is a 15 mm-thick 120 mm fan with a 9-blade impeller that's frosted white, diffusing light from LEDs located in the fan's hub (rather than the frame). Next up, are the AP142-ARGB and the AP124-ARGB (Air Penetrator series). Both these are are 25 mm-thick fans, with clear fan blades, addressable RGB LEDs located in the frame, and an air-guide that's characteristic of certain SilverStone fans. Lastly, there are the FG121 and FG141, and FG142 and FG122 fan grilles, which you strap onto your non illuminated fans for added bling. These now come with addressable RGB LEDs.

SilverStone Intros New Precision and Sugoi Series Cases

At Computex 2018, SilverStone showed off additions to its premier case lines - Precision and Sugoi. The Precision series is expanded by the new PS07-E (working title) and PS15 micro-ATX cases. The PS15 features a refreshingly simple layout - the motherboard and PSU bays are accessible from the left side, while the drive cage from the right. This way your drive cable clutter, and unused PSU cables are tucked away on the left side, taking advantage of the crawlspace behind the motherboard tray. You get familiar design elements from SilverStone, including a meshed front panel, a large top vent with removable filters, and a tempered glass right side panel. There are five fan bays in all, of which three are 140 mm capable, all 120 mm capable. The case measures 190 mm x 365 mm x 351 mm (WxHxD).

Next up, is the PS07-E micro-ATX tower. This case features a solid brushed metal front unlike the PS15, and a characteristic "hump" up top, which slides down along rails to reveal a 5.25-inch drive bay, three USB 3.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The Sugoi TJ08-Pro is practically identical to this case, but has a meshed front fascia. Inside, both cases feature an upside-down (BTX-style) micro-ATX motherboard tray, bottom-mounted PSU bay, three 3.5-inch drive bays, and two additional 2.5-inch mounts; and a staggering four 140 mm fan mounts, in addition to the 120 mm rear exhaust.

SilverStone New Lucid - Clear View Series Cases Spied

SilverStone this Computex unveiled its new Lucid Clear View series vertical cases. Available in micro-ATX (LD01 and LD02), and mini-ITX (LD03) sizes; the cases are characterized by gobs and gobs of tempered glass, with internal layouts optimized to let you show off most of your RGB LED-illuminated hardware. The LD01 and LD02 have a tower-like appearance, while the LD03 has a more cubical appearance. The LD01 is more glassy, and has glass panels on all but the rear and bottom sides. A chrome accent runs the top. This case measures 215 mm x 405 mm x 410 mm (WxHxD), and features three 3.5/2.5-inch drive-bays, in addition to two 2.5-inch mounts. Besides a 120 mm rear exhaust, you get four 140 mm mounts (two on the front, two along the top).

The LD02 is the slightly cheaper micro-ATX option, characterized by an aluminium bar running along its height, and tempered glass panels only along its front and right-side. It has the same number and configurations of fan-mounts and drive bays as the LD01, but is slightly bigger - 217 mm x 405 mm x 433 mm. Both the LD01 and LD02 orient the micro-ATX motherboards "upside-down," BTX-style. Lastly, there's the LD03. This case is more metal, less glass, and only has it along its side panels, in polygonal shapes. You get one each 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drive bays; two 120 mm and one 80 mm fan-mounts; and the ability to mount a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. The motherboard is oriented such that its rear I/O alights with the top of the case, and the graphics card stands tall through a riser. The case measures 277 mm x 415 mm x 230 mm.

SilverStone Intros Nightjar NJ450-SXL Fanless Power Supply

SilverStone introduced its Nightjar NJ450-SXL, a fan-less (silent) power-supply in the SFX-L form-factor. The unit boards of full modular cabling, and relies on a chunky, ridged aluminium body that doubles up as a heatsink, to cool itself. The unit puts out 450W of continuous power, with 80 Plus Platinum-rated efficiency. It supports the latest ATX 12V 2.4 specification.

Under the hood, the NJ450-SXL features a single +12V rail design, active PFC, and most common electrical protection mechanisms. There's enough juice and straws for a gaming PC build with a fairly high-end graphics card. You get a staggering four 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors (probably the highest ever for a 450W PSU), besides the 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS, eight SATA power, three Molex, and a Berg. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Silverstone Launches the FX350-G Flex ATX Power Supply

SilverStone Intros FG-122 and FG-142 RGB LED Fan Frames

Want to light up your performance-oriented but dull-looking SanAces? SilverStone may have the answer. The company rolled out the FG-122 and FG-142, ring-shaped fan-frames that you mount your fans through. The frames are lined with 24 RGB LEDs, which take input from a 4-pin RGB header. As you may have guessed from their model names, the FG-122 is designed for 120 mm fans, and the FG-142 for 140 mm. If you prefer not to pass bolts through the mount-holes, the frame also has an adhesive strip to latch onto your fan. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Intros Argon AR 11 Low-profile CPU Cooler

SilverStone released the latest entry to its Argon line of low-profile CPU coolers, with the Argon AR 11. Designed for LGA115x socket, with an installed height of just 47 mm, the cooler is ideal for SFF builds on mini-ITX motherboards, as its 97 mm x 94 mm x 47 mm aren't much larger than the CPU socket area of LGA115x motherboards itself. Like most Argon series coolers, its heatsink design involves a dense aluminium fin stack that propagates along the plane of the motherboard. Four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with the CPU, pass through two ends of the fin-stack in an "S" shape. The fin-stack is ventilated by a 15 mm-thick 92 mm fan, which takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 1,200 to 3,000 RPM, pushing up to 55.76 CFM of air, with a noise output of 44.5 dBA at max speed. The cooler supports CPU TDP of up to 95W, which means you should be able to install even 6-core "Coffee Lake-D" Processors. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Silverstone Showcases Myriad of Computer Cases at CES 2018

Silverstone took to CES 2018 to showcase what they feel is their strongest case offerings for the current market. In the Silverstone booth, the company showed off their Redline RL07, Primera PM02, Lucid LD01 (MicroATX) and Lucid LD02 cases, which look to cater to all tastes - and sizes.

The Redline is an ATX form-factor case with an interesting, asymmetric front look, with interesting LED inserts in the top and bottom declinations, which bring about an interesting lighting effect. The black case shines red LEDs; the white case shines blue LEDs. Simple enough. The Primera, on the other hand, are Silverstone's "trend-setting" cases, with a bold, micro-perforated look on the front of the chassis, with a Silverstone branding LED projecting the company's name towards your desk (or floor, should you commit that particular crime). Both the Redline and Primera chassis feature a steel body design, with a tempered glass side panel.

Silverstone Also Showcases Storage Solutions at CES 2018

Silverstone at CES 2018 also showcased some number of cases and storage solutions that the company hopes to carve its way through the market with. There's an interesting 4x M.2 Drive bay, for instance, which occupies a traditional 3.5" bay but gives users the option to mount up to 4x M.2 SSD drives; there's a 2.5" SSD expansion bay (EXB01) that allows for hot-swapping of SSDs mounted on the rack; an M.2 to PCIe adapter with embedded heatsink and LEDs, as well as a PCIe Gen3 x16 to an NVMe drive adapter.

SilverStone Intros TP02-M2 Heatsink for M.2 SSDs

SilverStone rolled out the TP02-M2, a heatsink for 80 mm-long M.2 SSDs (M.2-2280). This chunky aluminium heatsink is 1 cm tall, and weighs a little over 16 g. In addition to a 3 g-ish adhesive thermal pad, it would have added close to 20 g of weight onto the various soldered components of your drive; but SilverStone is clever enough to include two silicone bands that strap the heatsink onto the drive, offloading some of that weight. The heatsink was tested by its designers to significantly lower temperatures of NAND flash chips and controllers, which pose performance penalties on faster NVMe SSDs. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Intros Essential Gold Series Power Supplies

SilverStone, which last week expanded its Essential power-supply series with an entry-level 450W model, released the new Essential Gold Series PSUs, with 550W, 650W, and 750W models. Compared to the other Essential series models, which use 120 mm fans, these ones use larger (yet quieter) 140 mm fans, without the unit itself not being much larger (16 cm long). Also, unlike the other models, the Essential Gold Series offers partially modular cabling, and as the name suggests, 80 Plus Gold-rated efficiency (the others are 80 Plus Bronze).

The PSUs feature single +12V rail designs. Other internal features include active-PFC, and protection against over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. All cables, including the fixed ones, are flat ribbon-type. The other fixed cables include 4+4 pin EPS, and two 6+2 pin PCIe power. Modular cables include two additional 6+2 pin PCIe power on the 650W and 750W models, nine SATA power, three 4-pin Molex, and one 4-pin Berg.

SilverStone Intros the Primera PM02 Case

SilverStone today introduced the Primera PM02 mid-tower case. The case is characterized by a front-panel vent design that's halfway between minimalist and brutalist, with accents of red concealed behind matte-black overalls, or gray with matte-white overalls. A tinted-black tempered-glass panel covers the left side. Inside the case has a contemporary horizontal partitioned layout, with room for graphics cards up to 41.5 cm in length, CPU coolers up to 16.7 cm in height, and PSUs up to 19 cm in length.
