SilverStone Strider Gold S Series 1500W PSU ST1500-GS (SST-ST1500-GS)

Testing & Methodology

With most power supplies we just fire up a massive test rig and throw as many GPUs as we can at it until we hit a decent load. With the SilverStone 1500W PSU we have on hand there’s no chance of a full load in lab. We do have access to one PSU resource that can fully load and simulate full loads. We don’t simulate loads so it’ll have to be a real load on the test bench for us with some additional full load info gleaned from the power supply doctor.

Other than out-of-house testing, we load the test rig as hard as we can and test with a Multimeter. We also keep track of the voltage from the wall with a KillAWatt voltage measurement device, then measure how much voltage the rig uses. From that combination we can determine efficiency and rail voltages to determine tolerances.
