The Strider series of power supplies is one of Silverstone's longest running product lines. Some of the first power supplies they made fell under the Strider name and although there's been quite a few new product lines of power supplies since then, the Strider name still lives on in some of their highest end power nude celebrities supplies. A little over a year ago the Strider Gold line was released - this was Silverstone's first entry into the 80PLUS Gold certified market of power supplies. The Strider Gold were well made, high performing and quiet operating power supplies. I actually still use a Strider Gold in one of my systems today. Looking to keep the Strider Gold as their 'king of power supplies', Silverstone has recently released the Strider Gold Evolution. The Strider Gold Evolution is quite simply an 'evolved' version of the original Strider Gold. Silverstone has upgraded a lot of the internal components and re-designed the cooling system to make the Strider Gold even quieter and higher performing than it was before. Today I'll be putting the new 750 watt Strider Gold Evolution up against my original Strider Gold to see if these upgrades are worth it!
