    By Paul Johnson   January 24, 2017

    Big things come in small packages they say, but today we are looking at small PSU in a small package. SilverStone has been on a tear lately catering to the Small Form Factor PC enthusiast, and they are looking to do it again with its SFX 300 watt tiny PSU. With a "power density" of 378 watts per liter!

    SilverStone SFX ST45SF V3.0 450W Power Supply Review

    By Paul Johnson   December 14, 2016

    SilverStone is back today with one of its "smaller is better" computer power supplies that can be used in SFX form factor systems but also comes with a mounting bracket that makes it ATX friendly out of the box. This PSU is bringing quality and value, which is a great thing in the PSU world and not often seen from the big brand names.

    SilverStone Strider Titanium ST60F-TI 600W PSU Review

    By Paul Johnson   November 02, 2016

    SilverStone has been on a fairly successful ride with its Strider series of computer power supplies. These units tout excellent efficiency levels all while packing this into an unusually tiny footprint perfect for small form factor system builds. The ST60F-TI brings with it a solid build quality, near silent operation, all while being fully modular.

    SilverStone SX700-LPT 700W SFX-L Power Supply Review

    By Paul Johnson   August 23, 2016

    SilverStone has a new take on small form factor power supplies it is calling "SFX-L." This new form factor extends the standard SFX size by 30mm allowing SilverStone to install a quieter 120mm fan than the usual higher speed and noisier 80mm and 92mm fans. How does all this work out?

Let's see how that works out today.

    SilverStone Strider Gold S ST75F-GS V2 PSU Review

    By Paul Johnson   April 02, 2015

    A lot of PC applications have been trending toward smaller footprints in the last few years. SilverStone is looking to further address this need by packing as much wattage as possible into a confined space. The Strider Gold S ST75F-GS V2 is fully modular and is billing it as the "world’s smallest full-modular ATX PSU" at its capacity.

    SilverStone Olympia 1000W Power Supply 7 Year Redux

    By Paul Johnson   March 09, 2015

    Many people ask about long term computer power supply testing, and simple truth is that it is too expensive for HardOCP to do in-house as it would require hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of resources. However, we can give the inquisitive a non-scientific look at how well a personal PSU does in our testing 7 years later.
