Hey everyone,

I am looking for a new PSU to power my rig. I am wondering if this is comparable to the Zeus : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817163109 . I know it is 50W less but both have 55A on the quad 12V+ rails. I like this more then the Zeus because its all black and modular which is a biggy for me. This will be enough to power my picky DFI rig right? This one also has a 120mm fan instead of the 80mm that the Zeus has which is loud and doesnt cool well.

This Silverstone should work fine right?

You should take a look at the Seasonic S12-600 or the FSP Epsilon. Both are cheaper, more efficient and quieter.

the Zeus is a good psu, but it is LOUD

Yes, being loud was the only thing every review said was a negative. Can you give me links to the Seasonic and Epsilon? My mind is open because the two Silverstones are so expensive.

here's the Seasonic.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151025
That's a good price right now after rebate. This psu has taken top honors at several recent reviews. Clean, stable power, highly efficient and quiet. the only negative is the cables aren't sleeved. I fixed that on mine yesterday... I sleeved the cables, but it took me just about all day.

And the Fortron psu's

I have only heard good about these new epsilon units. apparently they are made by Sparkle which is one of the best psu manufactures

zerohour the Silverstone ST65ZF Zeus is definitely loud but you can swap out the fan for something quieter... Mine is now equipped with a 35 cfm Sunon fan, the air that is pushed out of the PSU is warm but nothing too alarming. Voltages are rock solid too and is as stable as my friend's PC P&C Turbocool 510 SLI, I borrowed it to test. Oh another thing to keep in mind is the Zeus is about 50% longer than a regular power supply so make sure you have enough space in your case.

Seasonic PSU's are also great while I haven't played with the S12-600, I have used other Seasonic power supplies without any issues. If you go that route, you'd be well served to.
