Zippy Emacs GSM-6600P G1 600w PSU

Conclusion

Conclusion

Without a doubt, the GSM-6600P is one very impressive unit. Zippy Emacs have set a new standard in computer PSU design, showing that stable power and looks can co-exist in one package.

What's more impressive than the GSM-6600P's looks, is its ability to produce rock solid power output with little to no fluctuation exhibited on all of the rails. In addition to this, the voltages are actually set very close to the rail standards (+3.33v rail @ 3.35v, +5v rail @ 5.01v, +12v rail @ 12.04v) unlike many other manufacturers that set their rail voltages as high as possible to compensate for potential droop.

To top the package off, the GSM-6600P is also one of the most efficient power supplies we've ever tested here at Overclock3D, managing a very respectable 84.5% efficiency rating.

At present the Zippy Emacs GSM-6600P isn't available in the UK (or anywhere for that matter). However, I have heard that several UK retailers will be obtaining the unit shortly, and once the unit is in stock this review will be updated.

Zippy Emacs units are now being stocked over at Specialtech with the GSM-6600P retailing for around £95.

"Zippy Emacs are a name that only the most informed computer enthusiasts among us would have heard of. Today I'll be taking a look at their 600w GSM-6600P(G1) PSU as they make their way into the mainstream market."

EDIT: Oh, and it would appear that this is a world exclusive too
