Most often when mentioning SilverStone at Phoronix, it is about one of their phenomenally designed cases like the Temjin TJ10, Fortress FT02, or most recently the Fortress FT03. Enclosures and other peripherals aren't our primary focus at Phoronix for being a Linux-focused hardware outfit, but it's always interesting seeing as what SilverStone comes up with in their new designs. Even though their products have been reviewed at Phoronix for the past six years, their new products always manage to push the envelope further. When it's not a SilverStone enclosure, it's usually a power supply, and that's what we're looking at today; up on the review block is a SilverStone Strider Gold 750W.

The packaging for the SilverStone Strider Gold was not anything particularly unique or different from other SilverStone PSU packages, such as the Strider Essential reviewed more than one year ago.
