Excerpt: Back in January of aught seven, the founder of this very site pitted two of the biggest and baddest against each other to see which of them rose to the top. Those two power supplies were the newly released Silverstone OP1000 and the PC Power and Cooling Turbocool 1kW. Well, times have changed since then and the competition has gotten tougher. Silverstone opted to deal with it by revamping their unit using a different OEM.
SilverStone offers a wide range of hardware for the PC enthusiast including a full line of enclosures, cooling solutions, and power supplies. SilverStone’s OP series of power supplies is designed for mission critical applications and comes in seven sizes ranging from 650W up to 1,200W. The new OP1000-E 1,000W power supply features a single, powerful +12V output and a quiet 120mm bottom mounted cooling fan.
Summary: Before installing the OP1000 in the test system, I wanted to first connect it to my CoolMax Power Supply Tester. This will tell us a few things. First, we will know up front if the power supply is fully functional or defective. Few things can irritate you more (and give you a scare) than installing a new power supply only to find it is defective. Also, the power supply tester will let us see if all of our voltage levels are within spec.
Summary: Endnu et produkt fra SilverStone havde fundet vej til TweakUp redaktionen. Denne gang var det deres voldsomme OP1000-E strømforsyning, som navnet så fint antyder, er en 1000W PSU. Vi har tidligere kigget på strømforsyninger fra SilverStone og hver gang har vi stødt på det samme. Der mangler generelt sleeving på kablerne.
