SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST70F-ES 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good Power (more than I'll ever need, probably)
Lot's of cables

Cons: Not modular, but I knew this beforehand, so no need to dock an egg for it.

Other Thoughts: This PSU is amazing. I just built my first gaming computer a couple months back, and PSUs were the scariest part about the entire build. I didn't know who to trust. Then, I stumbled upon Silverstone. I read many reviews on their PSUs stating how reliable they are and how well built they are. Everything I read is true. This thing is going strong almost three months without a hiccup.

Installation was a breeze. Pop it in the case, screw in everything, and attach the cables. Simple. The case I have allows me to put the extra cables in the front, where extra hard drives can go.

The only problem I had with this PSU was the CPU cable is quite short. If you want to route your cables to have a clean setup (who wouldn't?), then you'll probably need a CPU extension cable. I have a mid tower case, and even then, routing behind the mobo, the cable is about an inch too short. Luckily, my case actually came with a CPU extension cable, so I had no issues. Just beware for those of you with large cases, you'll probably need a cable.

My setup:
Case - Zalman Z9 Mid Tower
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
Mobo - Biostar T Overclocker TA970XE
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
RAM - 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1600MHz
PSU - Silverstone ST70F-ES 700w
GFX Card - Currently running an old Geforce 210, upgrading to an EVGA 660 FTW Signature 2
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200RPM
