The Silverstone Zeus ST52F
The Silverstone is more of a "black chrome" finish than the "titanium"
we're used to seeing. Refreshing, actually.
The Silverstone unit looks sharp and comes with more,
and more different, connectors than any of our other power supplies. At
an average price of $109-$129, the Silverstone is the most expensive
unit of the
three reviewed today.
A fist full of connectors.
There's no shortage of connectors, either. With
a PCI Express connector, 6-pin Aux, 8-pin AUX and four SATA connectors,
be plenty of connectors for your rig.
The Silverstone features a less commonlt used 2x3 AUX connector. Here
it's shown next to the PCI Express power connector.
To obtain a 2x2 power connector, one must adapt the 2x4 connector with
the above adapter (bottom of two shown.) The connector at the top
of the photo is an adapter included with the power supply because the
wrong connector was put on the end of the PCI Express connector. A
small note was included with the power supply explaining the error.
two 80MM fans that cool the Silverstone are quiet, but not as quiet as
Enermax's and not as quiet as Antec's 120MM fan.
Inside the power supply, we find a lot of good quality
components and construction. Most notable is the perforated copper
heatsink. The Silverstone also features Actvice Power Factor Correction
