SilverStone shows you can pack a lot of wattage in a small size with its new Strider Platinum series ST1200-PTS and ST1000-PTS power supplies. These fully modular units have 1200W and 1000W wattages, yet have a physical depth of just 140mm, which is usually the size of a 650-750W PSU. Both models have 80Plus Platinum certification and use a single +12V rail. Cooling is provided by a silent 120mm fan with hybrid ceramic bearing. The 1000W model has a $209.99 MSRP while the 1200W edition has a suggested retail price of $239.99.
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.
