SilverStone ST1500 1500W Power Supply

Reaching 1500W DC output (1600W peak), the Strider ST1500 is effectively at the limit of what an internal PC power supply can achieve in terms of wattage rating. For SilverStone, getting to this maximum power for a consumer-level power supply was only part of the goal, so every desirable feature known was added to create a dream product. The list starts with an unprecedented eight +12V rails, each capable of up to 25A, and continues with features such as 100% modular cables, 80 PLUS Silver-worthy efficiency ratings, and a quietness level that matches most 500W PSUs. If there is one upgrade that will likely outlast a PC enthusiast’s interest in computing, the ST1500 may just be it.

5 out of 5 eggsReview after 1 week of use

Pros: -Fully modular as advertised
-Quiet fan
-Supplies ample power to all components
-Installation wasn't too hard after some studying of manuals and sorting of cables

Cons: -None so far!

Other Thoughts: So far, this has proven a great buy, has enough power that if I upgrade later I won't have to buy a new PSU. Plenty of empty slots left to use.

1 out of 5 eggsFried 2 pins in the PSU and on the motherboard! Very limited warranty... STAY AWAY!

Pros: -Has plenty of head room for all your gadgets
-Fully Modular, makes it easy to tidy the inside of your case

Cons: -No On/off switch. Why?
-Limited Warranty only 1 year
-Fried in two locations, one on my PSU and one on my motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I would steer away from this product. It failed on me shortly after the warranty expired. Silverstone pretty much said, "Sorry about your luck, nothing we can do if its outside the warranty period". I mean, its not like you're paying $290.00 for this piece of brick. It melted and fried in two locations. One was the modular side where you plug it up into the Power Supply and the other was in the same exact location on the motherboard. Both places were melted on both sides of the 24-pin. No I wasn't running it on load, and no I wasn't even overclocking. I barely hit 800 watts because I bought this for an overkill head room. I was only running a i7 950 at the time and 2x GTX 580's. Now I'm stuck with a $289.99 brick and a useless motherboard that I cannot use due to it having friend 2 pins in my 24-pin slot on the motherboard, and also the 24-pin modular slot on my Power supply completely black and melted.. Do yourself a favor.... there are plenty of companies like Antec and EVGA that will give you at least a 5 year warranty on their Power Supplies. Its such a shame that this one failed shortly after a year and that it ruined two of my products. Kind of makes me wonder why they include such of a short warranty period on the product that you claim to be "Top of the line". Sounds a little skeptical to me. Either way this made me learn my lesson to go elsewhere when it comes to Power Supplies. But Hey! Look at the bright side, I ended up just upgrading my whole entire PC after this happened, so I guess there is a positive side to this. I also went ahead and got a Antec HCP-1000 Platinum with a "7"...... yes "7" year warranty. Thanks for nothing Silverstone.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the problems

Pros: - Worked great, until it didn't

Cons: - First one shipped DOA got an RMA
- Second survived 4 years until today when I turned on my PC to a loud audible pop and a fried PSU

Other Thoughts: Not even sure about the rest of my PC until I get my newly ordered PSU and I can only hope it didn't take anything else with it. Not even close to the maximum load.

4 out of 5 eggsWorth it I guess?

Pros: Actually uses less power than lower rated PSUs

Cons: Didn't really have any

Other Thoughts: 51 months of ownership, fan failed. I do not know if the unit is damaged due to heat. System began shutting down for "no reason."

Spent $400 on mine in 2011. Can't afford to straight replace it at this point... very bummed. Cannot find a replacement fan that I know for a fact will fix it.

2 out of 5 eggsMissing Pieces

Pros: Fits in my case quite snugly.

Cons: After waiting for 2 weeks to get all the parts to come in. I assembled my pc and went to plug my old power cord only to find out that its a different type of socket. Went through all the boxes that i had looking for it to no avail. Went online and apparently i wasn't shipped the cable carrying bag either. Now i have to wait even longer before i can use my new pc.

Other Thoughts: Super frustrating to do all that work assembling everything only to find that you cant use it yet because you weren't shipped the parts you need to get it going. Makes me wonder what kind of quality control silverstone has.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasts

Pros: Excellent for overclocking, stable power delivery, cable options galore.
The AC power cable and modular cables have a really nice thick gauge which speaks to Silverstone's excellent build quality.

Cons: I had this power supply for about two and a half years to drive a system that consumes ~1300w under full load (I do lots of video rendering on graphics cards). During that time, it was quite stable and a dependable workhorse that wouldn't start delivering unstable power under high load.
Just recently however, during a web-browsing session, it blew out with an audible pop, taking my 400$ motherboard (and potentially other parts) with it.
I had gotten a solid good working life out of; if it had died "gracefully," I wouldn't be giving it a one egg review. No, it had to destroy/damage half of the rest of my system too.
Since the warrenty on this power supply does not extend to cover damage to other equipment, it has left me completely out of luck.

Other Thoughts: I may be just extremely unlucky, but I won't be buying a Silverstone branded power supply ever again after this painful experience.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Reliable

Pros: None

Cons: I bought this power supply and it died within 45 days of using it at about 80% load. Contacted Silverstone and had to pay the shipping costs to return (International Shipping from Canada). After multiple attempts to get a status update on how the RMA was being processed I finally heard that they didn't have any replacements in stock and were waiting on a shipment from overseas.

When I finally received my replacement I hooked it back up again, this time at about 70% load and it died at around 90 days of use. Once again I need to pay international package shipping to return it to them.

Really not sure that this power supply is worth the cost of the shipping if it is only going to work for 2-3 months before dying.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this power supply, there are much better ones out there from other makers. 1500 watts at a 80 plus silver also leaves a fair bit to be desired. There are gold rated power supplies at this same price point.

3 out of 5 eggswas good for a bit

Pros: Was able to power all of my components without any issue for the 2 months I had it.
Very quiet.

Cons: I had it less than 2 months. Been trying to contact Sliverstone multiple times for a RMA, but cannot get any response from them.

Other Thoughts: I had it working prefect for 45-50 days, no issues. Then one day, I started noticing a heavy electric burn smell. It was coming from my PSU and I knew something was getting short circuited/getting fried. I turned it off and didn't use it for a week to see any difference. Turning it on again, I noticed that the smell was gone, but it wouldn't power anything more than my motherboard because I plugged in my GPU and it would turn on for a few seconds then shut off completely. I tried it again next day and the PSU was completely dead, couldn't power anything. It would turn on for less than a second and would give a small smell of something was burning. So I gave up on trying to resolve the issue. I've been using my back up PSU, but it is only powering up half of my components currently

3 out of 5 eggsGreat until boom

Pros: Running a water loop for my 980x and SLI 580s for 2.5 years this thing had all the power I thought I'd ever need. Powering 13 120mm fans, HDDs, pumps, etc., things ran great!

Cons: 2.5 years later, changed to a GTX 780 Classified, very loud pop and electrical smoke smell, dead PSU.

Other Thoughts: This power supply was awesome. I wasn't using the machine 24/7, and recently noticed the power seemed to begin fluctuating. I adjusted the speed on my fans to a higher RPM thinking the setting I had them adjusted to might have caused a fluctuation between voltages and was the issue. Less than 30 seconds after the 1v boost to each group of fans, the PSU popped and shot sparks and then everything just powered down.
