Performance:

Due to the design of the SilverStone Strider ST405 400W we decided to test power supply in one of our systems that just happened to be housed in a SilverStone Sugo SG01. For those of you who haven't seen this ATX chassis, it is one of the smallest form factor systems we've seen that doesn't require any proprietary hardware to be installed. Running the Strider in this system, we'll be able to get a good understanding for its real-world noise level along with the cabling and performance testing. Below are the components found inside the test system.

Hardware Components
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz (C)
Motherboard: Abit SG-72 (SiS 661FX)
Memory: 2 x 512MB Ultra PC3200
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce FX5900XT 128MB
Hard Drives: Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM IDE
Optical Drives: Lite-On 16x DVD-ROM
Add-On Devices: NetGear WAG-311 & D-Link DFE-530TX+
Cooling: Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 3
Case: SilverStone SG01 Sugo SFF
Software Components
Operating System: Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger) Preview
Linux Kernel: 2.6.12-8-386
GCC (GNU Compiler): 4.0.2
Graphics Driver: NVIDIA 1.0-7667


Surprisingly, even with the limited amount of space and number of components used, we didn't have much of a problem when it came to airflow throughout the system. For testing the system under idle, we allowed it to run inside Linux with no major external processes running for 30 minutes. To stress the system, we ran CPU Burn-In v1.00 (Linux) for 30 minutes while simultaneously running Doom 3. To measure the various voltages, we had used a calibrated WinMax Global digital multimeter. Below are our findings.
