I bought this power suppply few weeks back to power 580 SLI and some heavy stuff. First thing I noticed when I connected the power cable was that the whole group in my roomshut down!!!!!!

So I had to go downstairs turn that on, that was really a terrible thing, the whole power group in my room was totally off. ROFL!
I don't know who's idea a non-power switch was but that must be one of the dumbest persons ever!

I would never buy again a power supply without power switch!
you can turn of your pc by holding the power button, though.

Which is better the SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 1200W Modular Power Supply or a corsair AX 1200

Nice product and review.. I (semi-)recently built a computer, and ended up buying a Corsair AX1200, but I also looked this line of PSUs.

The Corsair AX1200 has some crazy efficiency, is completely modular, etc.. Bascially, has all the nice features of this PSU, but also has a switch! Which is useful indeed; there have been a few times I've had to use it.

Sadly, it does not come with a cool magnetic dust filter, but my case, also a Corsair brand case, (The Obsidian 800D..) has it's own dust filter in the bottom.

I've got a funny feeling that the next revision of the Strider line will have a power switch. Or at least I hope so.

"Yank the power cord if need be"............you're kidding right? What dumb A** engineer came up with this design sans a power switch?

Well, if you don't have a power switch and the system freezes, yep, you yank the power cord. They should have included a power switch though :/

I'd rather have a power switch so that I'll know the power supply is off before I can unplug the power cord and ensure that I will not see any leaked current. Of course, I cannot be sure what will happen if you try to unplug the power cord while its running at 1000 watts under load.
