Silverstone DA1000R 1000W Cybernetics Gold ATX 3.0 PCIe 5.0 PSU Review

Efficiency

The efficiency of this unit is fantastic, consistently above 90% at all loads. It’s pretty close to scoring an 80 Plus Platinum rating too, so a big thumbs up for efficiency here.

The PFC is also excellent and some of the most consistent I’ve seen. Even at 20% load, it starts strong with just a 0.96 PFC and the closer to 1.00 the better, with the PSU scoring 0.98 and 0.99 at all other loads, it’s going to waste less power, generates less heat and honestly, this is the highest PFC score I’ve seen so far.

Voltage Regulation

Keeping with that “the best I’ve seen” theme, the voltage regulation is exceptional. For the sake of our load tester, the 12V rail was split over two simulated rails. All are under 1% deviance, and anything under 3% is pretty great, so this is just exceptionally good.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
