Silverstone Zeus 560w ST56ZF ATX PSU

Unlike some of the other power supplies I've reviewed recently, the ST56ZF is by all means a standard sized ATX PSU. Measuring 150mm x 86mm x 160mm (HxWxD), the Zeus 560w is actually 10mm longer than its brother the Strider, but should still pose no problems fitting in any ATX case.
Weighing 2.5kg, my initial thoughts about this unit being heavier than the Strider are certainly correct.
The ST56ZF has the ability to auto-detect input voltage and switch between 110v/240v accordingly. This means there is no requirement for a voltage selection switch.
Also present on the back of the unit is an LED which shows you the current status. 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.
The sides of the unit are pretty much standard, with one side being covered with the Silverstone specification sticker, which contains the usual warnings and info.
The front of the unit is comprised entirely of a mesh grill, which provides the 80mm fan installed in the back of the unit with a supply of air to pull over the massive heatsinks installed inside the unit.
