SilverStone has unleashed a new beast for extremely power hungry computer systems, the new Strider SST-ST1500 can offer up to 1500W continuously and it's one of the first +1000W models to have 80 Plus Silver certification. This means this 1500W unit has an efficiency of at least 85 percent at 20 percent load, 88 percent at 50 percent load and 85 percent at full load.

The Strider 1500W has a 100 percent modular cable design, there are eight +12V rails that deliver up to 120A and it's capable of delivering a peak power output of 1600W.
The unit measures 150 x 86 x 220 mm (WxHxD). Under the hood are eight +12V rails, that belt out up to 120A of current. Active PFC is available. The ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI certified PSU features four 6+2 pin, and eight 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors. High-grade Japanese capacitors are used. A 135 mm fan with a minimum noise-output of 19 dBA keeps this beast cool.
