How good is the 1000Watt SilentStone?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have upgraded to a 1000watt silentstone powersupply to withstand through future upgrades. I'm probably using a minimum of 600 already, but anyways does anyone have these or know that they are pretty good? or have you heard bad things about them? i can still return it and get a different one if there is one for around the same value that is worth it. Got it for $275.

SilentStone? Never heard of that brand. Silverstone maybe? And which model is it exactly, there a couple Silverstones around that price range.

How on earth are you using 600W? If you refer to your sig rig.. I'd say 450W is the power draw at peak.

If that . It's probably closer to 350W.

Oh I see, that was just a guess. So you think 1000watts is overkill? One thing I was particularly going for is modular setup and I pretty much paid another 100 bucks to have 350 more watts. If I ever get 2 gpu's in the future, then the extra power would help. Planning to step the 9800gtx up to Gtx 280 soon as well.

I am sorry it is the Silverstone instead of Silent lol. Here is a link. It is called the Strider model SST-ST1000.

Well the Silverstones are great power supplies but really, you're only using about 350watts of power so why would you get a 1kw?

Complete overkill. What are your future upgrades going to be?

For any rig short of TRI-SLI/Tri-Fire with the highest end cards you can find, a solid 750W PSU is more than plenty.

But, regarding this PSU, I do not recommend the Strider series. They're the lowest quality series from Silverstone (Still ok, but there are better ones for the price).

Here is a nice Silverstone DA750 that should be plenty for any rig with SLI/Crossfire:

Get a DA650 for half the price. You'll still be good for a long while.
