Power Supplies

SilverStone Zeus ST75ZF 750W

If the popular 500~600W power supply units are not enough to suit the growing needs of computer enthusiasts, SilverStone Technology has released a phenomenal 750W continuous power PSU. With providing just over the equivalent of one horsepower, the SilverStone Zeus ST75ZF features quad +12V rails, dual PCI-E 6-pin connectors (plus the option for two more), industrial grade components, and active PFC. Is SilverStone's ST75ZF the new front-runner for high-end power supplies?

Sytrin Nextherm PSU460

When we reviewed the Sytrin Nextherm ICS-8200 air-conditioned ATX enclosure early last year, we were not only impressed by the superb chassis itself and cooling capabilities, but also the bundled power supply. In fact, the power supply unit included with the Nextherm ICS-8200 was likely one of the best we have ever seen bundled after years of seeing flakey PSUs bundled with all sorts of ATX cases. Today we have our eyes set on yet another Sytrin product, and today it is the Nextherm PSU460 460W.

SilverStone Strider ST56F 560W

When it comes to SilverStone Technology, although they have only been in existence for a few years now, their popularity continues to increase with gamers and enthusiasts alike. Their popularity is not simply rising due to an increase in publicity, or making a couple attractive products, but since their conception they have proved to be an excellent manufacturer and put incredible artisanship in all of their products from Temjin cases to Zeus power supplies. The product we have up on our bench today is the latest from the SilverStone Strider series and it is the ST56F 560W unit. The SilverStone ST56F claims Active Power Factor Correction, dual +12V rails, dual PCI-E connectors, and a silent operation.

ePower XScale 570W (EP-570MP)

OCZ Technology has been near the top of the power supply hierarchy for quite a while now. Nevertheless, it is a well-known fact that they, like most manufacturers, do not actually make their own units. OCZ Technology uses Topower's as their OEM supplier. Some of the other companies that benefit from Topower include Athena Power, Globalwin, BeQuiet, Aerocool, and ePower. Today we have ePower's Silent Engine 570W PSU for review and it uses Topower's power supplies.

Enermax Liberty 620W

We certainly were. Read more inside.

XG Magnum 500W

Looking for a good power supply? Can't stand noisy fans? Well today we have XG's beastly fan-less supply; the Magnum 500W. This unit features an all aluminum chassis, copper heatpipe cooling technology, modular cables, and LCD wattage and temperature display, pretty much all you can ask for in a power supply. Last thing to consider, however, is how does it perform? Let's take this out to our test bench and give it a run!

SilverStone Strider ST405 400W

Although a great deal of the power supplies we look at on a regular basis are designed for high-end systems, occasionally we accept the offer to look at a lower-wattage power supply that may not be ideal for an SLI or CrossFire setup but continues to pack a punch when it comes to features. The power supply unit up for review today is the Strider ST405 400W from SilverStone Technology.
