Silverstone Zeus 850w ST85ZF Quad SLI PSU

As with all power supplies that pass through Overclock3D, I'll be taking a look inside the Zeus. By doing this I should be able to get a good idea of the overall build quality of the unit and how it is likely to perform in our tests.
It will also be interesting to see exactly what has changed between the ST75ZF and ST85ZF models.
We can see from above the internals of the ST85ZF are manufactured by Etasis, a well respected industrial power supply manufacturer. Those of us 'on the ball' will also notice that the circuit board used in this power supply is exactly the same model as that used in the 750w ST75ZF version.
As you can see above many of the components placed inside the unit are labelled EPAP-850. These components are what gives the unit the extra 100w advantage over its brother the ST75ZF.
EDIT 01/08: Silverstone have informed us that this potentiometer is not responsible for adjusting the voltages. All voltages are set at the factory and should not need adjusting.
