    Bottom Line: The Silverstone Zeus ST65ZF is HARDCORE. It's more power supply than most people need, but if it's in the budget and you want no holds barred, this is a power supply for you.

    Introduction

    When a power supply is certified by nVidia as "SLI ready," has quad rails and has a max power rating of 650W with a maximum capability of 504W on the combined 12V rails.. you can't find much to be critical of in your review!  Yes, it's expensive at $155 to $170 at time of press.  But you get what you pay for... and there are more expensive power supplies out there with less juice.


    The Silverstone has a subtle beauty with it's flat black finish.

    Let's take a look at that label and see what Silverstone says it can do...

    3.3V
    5V
    12V1
    12V2
    12V3
    12V4
    -12V
    5VSB
    33A
    24A
    13A
    18A
    16A
    8A
    0.5A
    2A
    170W
    504W
    6W
    10W
    650W


    The entire PSU is cooled by a single 80MM fan and although the fan was howling like a banshee when the PSU was under extreme loads, the PSU was always kept nice and cool.  Typically, the fan spun at a decent RPM and was rather quiet.  I wonder how cooling would be if the fan was on the inside of the case.  Hmm...
