Summary: I bought this PSU unit for my newly built HTPC system because of its highly touted ability to deliver stable power at exceptionally low noise levels. The cable management system with the velcro straps are a great feature and the blue LED light make this PSU look nice in my HTPC. However, my system kept shutting off afer the required reboot during Windows 7 installation and I never suspected that the PSU would be at fault.
Summary: Bought this for a custom built Thermaltake Lanbox. We have had trouble with intermitten issues with the system not starting since the beginning. Just the fans barely turning at power up for a brief second and then the system shutting down. We were told it might be a short because of the size of the case and the proximity of the components to each other.
Summary: I put one of these in my latest homebuilt quad core PC, and am amazed at how quiet it is, which is important to me because loud PCs drive me crazy. I've had no problems at all in several months of use. The modular cabling was a real plus, since there was no need to deal with extra cables getting in the way during the installation. Zalman rates the efficiency at 84%, which is phenomenal.
Summary: Purchased this power supply for a music PC build and so needed to be quiet and quiet it is too. The cables are all covered in a nylon net and heat shrink to keep them tidy, all cables except the 20/24 pin & CPU 4/8pin motherboard connectors can be plugged in to the supply if you require them, making the inside of the PC case less cluttered with unused power cables.
Excerpt: Сгорел через 1,5 года. Был приятно удивлен что у компании Zalman в России нет авторизованных СЦ. Даже учитывая 3 года гарантии производителя, в России его сдать просто некуда. Сдавал через гарантийку магазина, в котором приобретал, назвать это "сервисом" не могу.
Pros: Тихий, удобная модульная система.
Cons: Подсветка, долбит в стену. В темноте сильно напрягает, дне вообще не видно.
