Silverstone Zeus 750w ST75ZF Quad Rail PSU

Introduction

Introduction

Silverstone are fairly new players in the PSU market, but have already made a great name for themselves, using only the best manufacturers to build their units whilst also managing to keep costs low.

Today I'm going to be taking a look at the recently released Zeus 750w unit, which looks and feels like a total beast!


Packaging

Silverstone have clearly spent some time (and money) making their packaging stand out and also look professional at the same time. You can almost tell by the box alone that this is one serious PSU.

Both the front and top of the box display the same vital statistics: Quad +12v rails, Dual PCI-E (it's actually got 2 extra add-in PCI-E connectors too), 4 SATA connectors...you get the idea. Also on the box are a couple pictures of the unit, Cleary slowing off some of its beefy internals through the honeycomb ventilation.

The sides of the box give a little bit more in-depth information about the specs of the unit. Here we see 4x +12v rails each rated at 18a (with a max combined output of 60a), a +3.3v rail rated at 28a and a +5v rail rated at 30a.

With the noise level rated at 24dBA minimum this could prove to be a fairly noisy unit - but we'll find out for sure later on in the review.

Open up the box and the first thing you will be presented with is the PSU manual and a separate sheet of paper explaining the layout of 4 +12v rails on the Power Supply (see Page 2 for close-up).

The unit itself is sandwiched in-between two cardboard layers, each padded out with Styrofoam shapes to protect all corners of the PSU. Also included is a small cardboard box containing the power cord, screws, cable ties, an 8-pin to 4-pin PV-12v converter, and two additional PCI-E connectors.

The bundle of cables are contained within a bubble-wrap sleeve and tied together with a large cable-tie.

Jesus - that is rated with twice as much power as my current PSU!

I'm liking the current idea of only needing to plug in the connections you want - leaves a nice tidy box (as the actress said to the bishop).Quote

Yes, i'm a big fan of Modular too (my last 3 PSU's have been).

Coming up soon is a Silverstone Strider 600w Modular review - should be a nice bit of kit Quote
