Default Tagan Silver Power SP-1000W

It seems that with each new advancement in hardware, the power requirements increase twice as fast... that power has to come from somewhere. Tagan sent us up the Silver Power 1000W to evaluate so thats what we did.

You can read the review here and discuss it here.

Comparing the 12 volt rails, which I think is the most important factor, the silverstone strider 1000w comes in with 2 rails at 32 amps, also modular and peak wattage is 1100w at max load.

  • 1 x ATX 12V 4-pin P4
  • 4 x 6-pin PCI Express
  • 8 x 8-pin PCI Express 2.0
  • 6 x SATA
  • 6 x 4-pin Molex
  • 2 x 4-pin FDD
  • Power Input:
    • Voltage: 90~264VAC
    • Current: 12~6A
    • Frequency: 63~47Hz
