Silverstone Zeus 850w ST85ZF Quad SLI PSU

Appearance

Appearance

The ST85ZF shares exactly the same dimensions as its brother the ST75ZF, coming in at 150 mm (W) x 86 mm (H) x 180 mm (D). This is a pleasant surprise that Silverstone managed to pack an extra 100w into the unit without the need to make it any bigger.


ST85ZF Front ST857F Back

Silverstone seem to have a tradition of keeping their power supplies very plain, and only spraying them in matt black paint. This is certainly true of the ST85ZF which is very similar in appearance to the ST75ZF.

The back of the power supply has the usual mesh grill, which allows for the air pushed over components by the 80mm fan to exit the back of your PC case. Also included is an LED which shows you the current status of the unit. When switching the Power Supply on the LED turns from Red to Green. Only when the LED is Green is DC power supplied to the rails.

It's good to see that Silverstone have opted for a black fan grill on the front of the unit, as the silver one used on the ST75ZF looked somewhat out of place.

The sides of the unit have also been kept very simple, with only a specification sticker containing the usual warnings and information about the power supply, along with its rated output for all of the rails.

"Probably the most power hungry component in a PC is the graphics card. Put 4 of them together for Quad SLI, and you need a seriously beefy PSU. Do Silverstone have the goods?"
