Cases & PSU/Power Supplies by piotke @ 2006-07-17

While Intel and AMD and frantically working to keep power usage down of their recent and upcoming CPUs, we see video card taking the top power gobbling spot, two high end ATI X1900 cards in Crossfire will bring most modest power supplies to their knees. You need a sufficiently powerful unit if you plan to overclock your system, this Silverstone 750W PSU is silent and powerful, but is it enough? Let?s find out

Inside & Out

The Zeus 750W comes with an impressive arsenal of connectors and cables of sufficient length

8pin to 4pin ATX12V adapter connector
6-pin AUX connector
Dual 6-pin PCI-E

There are a few converter cables included too, with them you can combine/alter certain cables for other purposes, allowing for example to power up to four PCIe video cards!

From left to right:
  • the 80mm fan serves as an in-take for the PSU, blowing air over the components
  • the sides are completely closed ? with the full specs printed on them
  • the rear panel is a large grill which allows hot air to pass through, the small LED next to the on/off button serves as an indicator of the power status. Off = no power (duh), Orange = Connected to power grid but computer turned off, Green = PC switched on.

    To just say that this power supply is tightly packed would be quite an understatement; there is little room left for air to pass through the circuitry of the Zeus 750. The origins of this unit can be seen on the PCB, ?EPAP-750? from Etasis.
