Zippy Emacs GSM-6600P G1 600w PSU
When it comes to high-end power supplies, looks often take a back seat to performance with most companies opting for plain black or silver painted units. Zippy Emacs however, have something rather unique up their sleeves..
With its brushed and anodised aluminium housing, the GSM-660P has to be the most visually elegant power supply I've ever tested to date. Credit also has to be given to Zippy Emacs for the smaller details such as countersunk screws and polished aluminium Emacs logo. This PSU would be a great match for a high-end aluminium PC case such as a Lian-Li.
It's a shame that Zippy opted for a "punched" fan grill, as in my opinion this makes the unit look rather dated. A much better option would have been a black wire fan grill seen on most modern power supplies.
An interesting feature not seen on many other power supplies is the power cord brace seen in the picture on the right. This prevents the power cord from coming loose or being accidentally unplugged. Certainly handy for those of us who are always shifting our PC's around.
The GSM-6600P 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 on the back of the unit.
The front of the unit gives you a sneak peek at the beast within through its full sized mesh grill. We can also see that Zippy Emacs have opted to hold the bundle of cables protruding from the unit together with a large cable tie. While this is perfectly acceptable, it does allow for more movement of the cables inside the unit, which could eventually lead to a cable or solder joint breaking if the cables were moved around a lot.
