Power supply installation is very straightforward, and the compact size of the modular ST75F-P makes it a great fit in any case! Finally, a modular power supply that will fit just perfectly in a M-ATX SFF case. Use the Silverstone short cable kit and you'll see the space inside your small case start to grow. Including both thumb screws, regular screws and two forms of cable ties (velcro and plastic) was a beautiful touch. I always notice how Silverstone includes the same great accessory bundle with both their most expensive and most in-expensive products alike.
Testing Disclaimer: To truly test a computer power supply to it's fullest extent would require equipment far beyond the budget of any part time reviewer. For that reason, our power supply tests are simple real world tests done by measuring it's performance when running in an above-average computer system. Since any good power supply should be able to regulate it's voltages under regular use, I never expect to see much of a change in that regards. Therefore, take our power supply tests as providing some overall feedback on how I felt all aspects of the power supply performed.

As the results show, the voltages on this power supply were tight, being no more than 1.1% off from exact values. An average power supply allows for a difference of +/-5% on each rail, but Silverstone tightened that to an impressive +/-3% on this model. For the great price of this power supply, that's another great feature and sign of quality to see.
Noise levels were also exceptionally low, which is always plesing in a system that sits a mere meter away from me on my desk.
