Does this PSU Have Double Wires?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi!

I'm currently in the process of designing my next computer build and I want to sleeve the psu. I took a read through the FAQ and found some suggested PSUs, however most are over 160mm which won't fit in the Bitfenix prodigy case I want to use. The FAQ suggests the Silverstone Strider Evolution, Gold, and Plus series but doesn't specify which and says to "look for double wires." I either missed it or the FAQ fails to tell you how to look for double wires, though, so can someone help this noob out and tell me if this PSU has double wires and will be "easy" to sleeve?

SilverStone Strider Plus 750w Silver


EDIT: I forgot to check reviews on that psu, good thing I remembered, as many are saying it makes a "tick" noise. I'm thinking of this one: SilverStone Strider 650w Gold Which one do you guys think?

Thanks for the help, I greatly appreciate it!

If you've got a Prodigy, then you've got mITX and so only one GPU. So even the ST-55F-G would be plenty for most hardware you can fit in the case. (Unless we're talking GTX690 and full watercooling loop, but even then...)

To answer your actual question: silver and gold Striders have one double wire for sensing voltage droop at high load. But it isn't required, PSU will still stay in spec without it. By the way, the cable harness is pretty long for such a case, so I recommend you get the PP05 short cable kit, or crimp your own wires.

This is the answer is needed, thanks! I will look into that short cable kit, I wasn't sure how I was going to handle the length, but that sound like a nice solution. I only picked the 650 as I wasn't sure how much wattage I would need for a gtx 670 overclocked, a i5 overclocked, a full water loop and two hdds. Is 550 really enough?

Yes. Here for example review/test of an overclocked 670 in a system with an overclocked i7-2600k @ 4.8GHz.
It draws less than 360W from the wall.
