SilverStone Shrinks Depth of Strider Platinum PTS PSUs: 1.2kW at 140mm
SilverStone unveiled a duo of short-circuit, high-performance PSUs this week. The founding members of the brand new Strider Platinum PTS household, the not too long ago launched 1000-watt and 1200-watt energy provides, are solely 140mm deep, enabling system builders and DIY lovers to construct high-performance techniques with extra compact enclosures.
Whereas high-end desktops are nonetheless extraordinarily giant with out compromise (with a few of them in a position to combine two motherboards), there are a lot of preferring smaller HEDTs. Motherboard producers are launching lovers of the category Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX which help fairly intensive enlargement capabilities. Due to this fact, there’s a want for smaller high-end energy provides and chassis. SilverStone was one of many first energy provide producers to supply high-watt Mini ITX PSUs. Final yr launched a comparatively brief 1.5 kW ATX energy provide. This week, the corporate takes one other step towards miniaturizing high-wattage PSUs, launching its 140mm-deep Strider Platinum PTS energy provides.
The SilverStone Strider Platinum PTS household – to not be confused with the Strider Platinum PT household – are ATX12V V2.four compliant PSUs designed particularly for his or her lowered depth with SilverStone 1000W and 1200 W fashions. The ability provides adjust to the 80 Plus Platinum necessities. Due to this fact, they’re required to realize an effectivity of 89% to 94% at a load of 50% or 100% and an effectivity of 90% to 92% at a load of 20%. The latter makes it potential to make use of the vitality effectivity of contemporary PC even with energy provide with excessive efficiency. In the meantime, like different trendy energy provides, the facility provides are geared up with overcurrent, overcurrent, over / underneath voltage, overtemperature and brief circuit safety.
SilverStones "small" (or brief, as you place it) Strider Platinum PTS 1000W and 1200W PSUs function a single +12 V rail design with a good voltage management of ± three% and low ripple and low noise. The ability provides are geared up with a 120 mm hybrid ceramic bearing (HYB) fan that rotates at a load of 50% or much less at 1000rpm (at 18dBA) and at larger hundreds at as much as 1800rpm. As an added bonus, SilverStone is bundling its magnetic fan filter FF122 with its new energy provides.
Like many trendy energy provides, the SilverStone Strider Platinum PTS energy provide with 1kW and 1.2kW modularity options two EPS12V connectors for compatibility with 2P server / workstation platforms, in addition to superior ones HEDT motherboards like those on AMD's X399 & # 39; threadripper & # 39; and Intel's X299 & # 39; Skylake-X & # 39; platforms. For the opposite ports, the brand new Strider Platinum PTS energy provides have eight 6 + 2-pin (Eight-pin) PCIe energy adapter plugs for graphics playing cards (simply in case you utilize 4 AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 boards) and eight SATA Energy provide connections, six Molex energy outputs and two FDD plugs. Historically, all cables are flat in the present day for higher flexibility.
Specs of the SilverStone Strider PTS collection
SilverStone will make the Strider Platinum PTS 1 kW and 1.2 kW energy provides obtainable within the coming weeks. The 1000 W mannequin will value $ 210, whereas the 1200 W SKU might be obtainable at $ 240.
