Overview

The SilverStone ST1000-PTS packaging is very much like what we have been seeing from SilverStone for some time now when it comes to their Strider units. The front of the package has a column of advertising that includes things such as ” Compact design with a depth of 140mm for easy integration”, “High efficiency with 80 PLUS Platinum certification”, “100% modular cables”, “24/7 continuous power output with 40℃ operating temperature”, etc.

Or, we could say everything that we posted on the last page that is part of SilverStone’s marketing blurb on their website. Among those things though, we see that SilverStone is advertising this unit as adhering to the 80 Plus Platinum standard of efficiency and a quick check of the 80 Plus website shows that this unit is indeed certified for 80 Plus Platinum. Moving to the rear of the packaging of the ST1000-PTS, we find the advertising carry over from the front of the package but with pictures, or graphs, and more text accompanying it. On the sides of the packaging, we find the power label (reproduced below) and the connector count (reproduced below). Lastly, the ST1000-PTS carries a 5 year warranty.

The ST1000-PTS is advertised as being a single 12v rail power supply with a capacity up to 86A (or ~100% of the unit’s capacity) if necessary. The minor rails (5v and 3.3v) have a capacity of 22A and 25A, respectively, and the combined capacity of those two rails is 120W. Combined with these outputs, we find that this unit has 8 PCIe connectors, 8 SATA connectors, and 6 Molex connectors.

Once we open the SilverStone ST1000-PTS packaging, we are left looking at the unit, power cord, mounting screws, fan filter, Velcro ties, cables, and user manuals. The user manuals include the usual pinout guide, power label, and the very complete electrical specifications that we typically (as well as today) see from SilverStone. With that out of the way, let’s move on to see what this unit looks like when we open it up!
