Many manufacturers showcase their upcoming products at Computex and among the wave of new products spotted is the SilverStone Strider ST1500 PSU. The ST1500 has an extraordinary power rating of 1500W although it can rise to 1600W under optimal conditions. The Strider is modular and includes four 8 pin PCIe connectors, eight 6 pin PCIe connectors, 12 SATA connectors, a 24 pin and 8 pin motherboard and CPU connector respectively and a handful of molex connectors. Eight 12V rails (25A each) provide plenty of power for hungry systems. It is worthy to note that the Strider has attained the 80PLUS Silver Certification according to SilverStone. One 135mm fan cools the unit, although that seems under-done to me. The ST1500 measures 8.7" x 5.9" x 3.4" or 220mm x 150mm x 86mm (WxHxD). The Strider will retail for around $US450, although I'm not sure who would actually need 1500W of power from an in-case PSU.
