Zalman ZM500HP, any good?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Heya, I have the chance to get a fully boxed and unused Zalman ZM500HP PSU for £25 posted.

Link is here.

Are they any good? Getting a fully modular and sleeved psu for such a good price is appealing to me, especially as I can get it by Tuesday.

The rigs its going to go in is:
i5 2500k cpu
p67a-g45 mobo
4gb 1600mhz 7-8-7-20 ram(1.6v I think)
two hard drives (new one for OS / documents, old HDD to be used as a page file as I've heard this is beneficial for speed.) Games / movies / tv are on an external.
ATI HD4890 gpu.
NZXT M59 case.

Will that 500w psu be suffifient? If so then I'm going to pay for it now and get £25's worth of cheap beer to congratulate myself

Cheers for reading.
My first build.

It's a fairly good performing FSP built unit, I would go for it at that price.

And yes, 500w is more than enough for that rig.

Nice, Just messeged the guy to buy it

After I'm done setting a new PR on deadlifts I'm off to get drunk (Currently working at about 72.5kg, going to have to jump to 82.5kg because the only weights I have left are 5kg plates)
