SilverStone Zeus ZM1350W PSU Review

The Zeus ZM1350W power supply is extremely well protected, sandwiched between two thick foam pads.
The power supply is massive, and very heavy. The finish is a matt black and it is almost impossible to scratch. It passed our screwdriver surface test with flying colours (we simulate a rough system build by running the head of a Philips screwdriver down the side with low to moderate force). The finish was also very resistant to fingerprints, thanks to the mottled paint implementation. I do wish all power supplies used the same finish.
The modular cables all connect on one side of the chassis. They are colour coded for ease of installation and there is a little diagram above, on the top of the supply. This diagram explains the +12V rail distribution on the modular ports when configured to a multi rail setup.
No giant fan on this power supply, just a tiny 80mm fan at the front, next to the power connector and switch. There is also a button here which can be used to set the fan to full speed if you are trying to achieve the lowest possible temperatures. This does get noisy however, and we will measure the emissions later in the review.
There are only a few venting holes on the sides of the chassis to help improve airflow. The shape of the power supply ensures that cool air is driven in by the fan, across the length and then outwards on the other side.
You can configure the power supply to use a single +12V Rail, or six +12V rails, as shown in the diagram above. There is a small LED indicator which details the operational state: orange for standby, green for normal or red, indicating a problem.

Total Power 170W 1260W 6W 20W

Technically the power supply can deliver 1260W to the +12V rails. Both +3.3V and +5V rails can deliver 25A.
