Examination:

With the SilverStone Strider Essential series being lower-cost power supplies, there are no modular cables or any other special features to this power supply unit. There is a 120mm fan on the bottom of this 500W power supply, which does operate very quietly, and a matte black fan grille to match the rest of the power supply covers it. At the rear of the power supply is an open honeycomb mesh along with the power plug and switch.

Again, the 500W Strider Essential uses Active PFC, sports 80 PLUS certification, is RoHS compliant, and has all of the standard PSU features you would expect. Its +12V power is on a single 34 Amp line that provides a maximum of 408 Watts. The +3.3V line has a 24 Amp max and the +5V line tops out at 20 Amps.

The cables for the ST50F-ES PSU is a 500mm 20/24-pin motherboard, 550mm 4/8-pin EPS/ATX12V, one 500mm 6/8-pin PCI Express, one 650mm 6-pin PCI Express, four Serial ATA starting with a cable length of 400mm and longer, three 4-pin molex at 400mm cable length and longer, and one 4-pin FDD connector.
