Zalman ZM1000-HP 1000W Modular PSU (http://www.bcchardware.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5903&Itemid=40)

We have just published our review of the 1000W Zalman ZM1000-HP PSU (http://www.bcchardware.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5903&Itemid=40).  In a world crowded with 1kW PSUs, the Zalman unit stands out as it has a 14cm fan and dual heatpipes that help keep it cool and quiet.  This PSU has six +12v rails to keep your gear all running smooth and appears to be very stable as we analyze this unit with a Tektronics Digital Scope.  Take a look before you spend your cash (http://www.bcchardware.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5903&Itemid=40) on a $200+ PSU.

The voltage is very solid with the Zalman ZM1000-HP.  It starts a little above the rated value and drops only slightly on any of the lines.  The highest 12v rail (12v2) drops 0.2v and levels off at 12.2v with a heavy load.  The 5v rail stays above 5v at 5.08v - down from the non-load 5.09v.  The 3.3v line is even more solid and we didn't measure any drop in voltage when going from a non-load situation to a heavy 850W load on the entire PSU. . .
