Even though SilverStone Technology has only been at the game of creating high-end power supplies since 2003, they currently possess their Strider, Zeus, NightJar, and Gemini PSUs and have received many acclaims for their exceptional level of performance and build quality. In fact, two of SilverStone's PSUs are presently certified by NVIDIA's strenuous SLI certification program. Although the unit we're looking at today doesn't provide the necessary functions for supporting dual graphics cards and a plethora of peripheral devices, it does manage to pack a fair amount of power features and the high-level of performance we've been accustom to seeing by SilverStone Technology. The model in our hands today is the recently released SilverStone Strider ST405 400W PSU.

Features:

· Intelligent 120mm variable speed fan
· All titanium black high gloss finish
· Strong continuous power output
· Components designed for reliability
· Serial ATA support
· 400W Power output

The SilverStone Strider ST405 arrived here inside of its durable cardboard box that sported general information about the Strider PSU series. Unlike some power supplies that are encased in a wealth of Styrofoam, or other methods of protection, the ST405 and its contents were simply packaged tightly inside of the cardboard container. Even with the lack of any additional packaging safeguards, the PSU was left in pristine condition due to the properly sized packaging. Shipping with the 400W power supply was a standard US power cable, four mounting screws, and a Strider series pamphlet. This paper pamphlet simply contains some general cooling recommendations, connector types, and general operating notes.
