Late last year I had the opportunity to review SilverStone's 600w Strider power supply. The unit held its own very well and didn't even break a sweat, regardless of how far I pushed my hardware. It was clear that SilverStone had a winner on their hands with the 600w Strider, but we all know that you can't sit idle in the computer hardware industry or you will be left in the dust. Not wanting the latter to happen, SilverStone went to work and developed what is currently considered one of the most powerful power supplies on the market today, the Zeus ST75ZF 750w. Today I will be taking a look at this unit and running it through the paces, courtesy of my much-improved test rig. Does the Zeus 750w have what it takes to keep up with a dual core, SLI-configured machine?
The ST75ZF arrived in the same style package as did the older 600w unit mentioned above. The box has an attractive design that shows off the unit nicely as well as a carrying handle (useful as this is a heavy PSU, coming in at over 6 lbs.). The side of the package displays some of the special features; more on that in a bit.
Specifications on the ST75ZF can be seen below, taken directly from SilverStone's website.
