The Verdict Well Guru's, the previous model power supply we tested from SilverStone was the ST60F which did not survive our stress test as clearly described on our article (the solve is noted in there also). The Zeus 750 Watt power supply however is mighty impressive with a greater than 80% efficiency. Now if you had a look at the specifications you'd have noticed that this unit include 72A and 720W combined wattage on the +12V quad rails and another 180 Watts at the 3.3 & +5 Volts rails. Yes that 750 Watts is allocated to the 12 Volts rails. We believe this portable nuclear power reactor can do 900 Watts given the proper circumstances.
We tried and we failed, but we can't even make this PSU sweat a little. It's stable as a house despite everything we threw at it which we certainly did. it managed an extremely high-end system with quad GPU setup 100% fine. This PSU is so good I'll be giving it a home in our primary graphics card test system. It has great looks and performs beautifully. The one miniscule protest is that the fan can be heard, but really that's all I can think of.
You know us and our articles. If a product fails the test we'll let you know. We tell it like it is and how we experience everything, and this was one impressive experience.
This PSU has a lovely design and the Quad 12 volts rails with 18 AMPs on each rail is what is making sure you are "Dual or Quad everything" prepared. It really is a magnificent power supply which is not badly priced either - you can pick it up for 179 to 200 USD already and honestly that is a good price for this terrific beast.

SilverStone 750 Watt ATX Power Supply Today we will have a look at the Zeus 750 Watt continuous power supply from Silverstone. A really awe-inspiring power supply with four (yes four) +12 Volts rails and which is also an SLI ready power supply. We'll put it to the test buy using our quad SLI setup. The new Zeus is cool, literally, as up to 750W it'll maintain a temperature of 50°C. You get 60 AMPs combined (over 700W) for these four +12V rails alone, making the ST75ZF capable of powering any top of the line system available today and the near future.
