Packaging, Bundle & Cables

Strider Gold Evolution is presented in a rather large, eye-catching box. In keeping with the name and efficiency of this PSU, gold is a dominant colour. The front of the packaging identifies the model name and key features of this PSU. The sides and rear of the box has various graphs and more details for Strider Gold Evolution.

Inside the box, foam padding and bubble wrap helps to keep all items protected during transit.

The packaging for Strider Gold Evolution

There are quite a number of items bundled with the Strider Gold Evolution. These include the following:

• 8 Screws (4x standard 4x thumbscrews)
• 4 Velcro Straps
• Power cable
• Documentation – Multilingual Manual, Specifications Booklet
• Detachable Magnetic Air Filter
• Modular Cables (Already attached to PSU)

Being fully modular the PSU has detachable cables – these cables come already attached to the PSU. It’s good to see SilverStone include some extra items you wouldn’t usually get with a PSU such as the thumbscrews and Velcro straps for cable management. They have also included a detachable air filter; the filter attaches via magnets and is useful for reducing dust build up.

Strider Gold Evolution bundle

As already mentioned, Strider Gold Evolution 1000W is fully modular – as a result all cables are detachable. Due to the calibre of PSU, there are additional cables included too. The included cables are as follows:

• 1 x 24 / 20-Pin Motherboard connector 550mm
• 1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector 750mm
• 1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector 550mm
• 4 x 8/6-Pin PCIE connector 550mm
• 2 x 6-Pin PCIE connector 550mm / 150mm
• 8 x SATA connector 600mm / 150mm / 150mm/150mm
• 6 x 4-Pin Peripheral connector 600mm / 150mm / 150mm
• 2 x 4-Pin Floppy connector 600mm / 150mm / 150mm / 150mm

All cables are covered in a black Nylon sleeve to conceal the wires underneath and maintain tidy looking cable management inside the computer chassis. The yellow wires show through the sleeves – ideally it could be thicker for complete concealment.
