Zippy Emacs GSM-6600P G1 600w PSU

Looking Inside

Looking Inside

As with all power supplies that pass through Overclock3D, I'll be taking a look inside the GSM-6600P. 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.

To say that this power supply is 'jam packed' would be a serious understatement. Every inch of the casing is occupied by components, with two oversized aluminium heatsinks designed to move the heat away from the hotter parts of the unit.

The layout of the components and cabling is rather untidy in comparison with other units that I've seen in the past and makes me wonder just how effective the 80mm fan will be at keeping everything cool.

I'm always on the lookout for adjustable pots in PSU's that pass through OC3D, as these can come in very handy on increasing the voltages if they droop under heavy load. Unfortunately I was unable to find any on the GSM-6600P, which is a great shame - let's hope they are not needed.

As previously mentioned, the GSM-6600P makes use of an 80mm fan manufactured by Sanyo Denki. The San Cooler 80 is able to push a total of 42cfm when running at 12v, with a noise output level of 34dBA.

At the moment I'm not really sure. OC3D are personally pushing to get the unit over in the UK, and hopefully you should see them in small quantities soon.Quote
