    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.

    Ok.  You just read a six page review about one single power supply.  I admit.. I'm Silverstone's bitch.  This thing 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.


    • Very powerful.
    • Very stable.
    • Very elegant appearance.
    • Nice cables.
    • Plenty of cables.
    • Decent efficiency across the board.
    • Not too loud under normal loads.
    • Doesn't get too hot even under extreme loads.
    • A great value considering how much juice this thing puts out.
    • Active power factor correction


    • Have to be aware of minimum load requirements for 5V rail to avoid crossloading issues.

    That about wraps it up for this bad boy.  If I could improve it at all, I would give it even better efficiency and address the crossload issue somehow, even if it means installing a 5 or 10A dummy load on the 5V rail and lowering the maximum output capacity to 600W or 625W, but that's being nit picky. 

    Easily this power supply scores a 10.  And with that 10 comes an Editor's Choice award.  Congratulations Silverstone!  You earned it.
