The following hardware was used to test the Strider Plus:

Foxconn A79A-S Motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition Processor @ 4.2Ghz 1.478v NB 2640mhz 1.4v
OCZ Platinum LV DDR2 1066 @ 1174mhz Cas 5-5-5-18-2T Memory
PowerColor PCS+ AX HD5770 1GB Video Card
5 x SATA II Hard Drives
1 x SATA Optical Drive
Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy 2 Zs Sound Card with Front Panel
Lamptron FC-2 with 4 x Yate Loon High Speed 120mm & 2 x Yate Loon 140mm Medium Speed fans
Cooler Master Hyper212+ with 2 x Yate Loon High Speed 120mm fans

USB Device:

Microsoft Zune HD
Microsoft LifeCam Cinema
Logitech G5
USB 2.0 Card Reader

To run these tests I did continuous six minute runs of OCCT's Power Supply test to ensure the same results across the board. I also used my Micronta Digital Multi-Meter to ensure voltages were read correctly, which actually put a small degree of error on the 5v & 12v lines when measured by the motherboard. So for all the results, the tests will be done with OCCT, but the results will be the measurements from the Digital Multi-Meter.

Alright, let's see what the tests show:

On idle everything is holding solid. All lines are right at over their marks, but well within the specifications laid out. Now let's see how this unit loads up on my system.

Under load we get phenomenal results as well. This unit holds strong despite its previous annoyances. This is definitely a bounce back from before. 12v & 3.3v lines barely budged and the 5v line leveled out, but it's all held very well within specifications laid out. I'm definitely going to have to give this unit high marks in that regard.

Let's move ahead and wrap things up.
