SilverStone introduced a new 500W Strider Essential (ST50F-ES230) power supply with an all-white coating. It's a basic model, it promises efficiency of up to 85 percent but it doesn't seem to be 80Plus certified. The power supply delivers up to 500W with an operating temperature of 40°C, and has a single +12V rail with a maximum output of 34A. Cooling is provided by a silent 120mm fan.
The Strider Essential series model is a line of power supplies designed with high affordability and great performance. The ST50F-ES230 has at 80% efficiency or greater between 20%~100% load with a maximum efficiency up to 85% under 230V. A powerful single +12V rail and its quiet running fan ensures stable performance with minimum noise while its solid design and components support up to 40 degrees for 24/7 operation. The ST50F-ES230 can also fully support multi-GPU systems with 8pin/6pin PCI-E connectors. From a value and performance standpoint, the Strider Essential series is an outstanding choice.
