Zalman ZM1250 Platinum 1250W 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

It has been a long time coming that we take a look at another power supply from Zalman. Their latest might just fit the bill if you've got some extra cash burning a hole in your wallet.

Inside the Box

Everything is packaged well inside the box and the power supply is surrounded by at least a half inch of foam on all sides.

The top features the I/O specification label and serial number of the unit. Zalman also lists the rail distribution here, which is nice to see.

One side of the ZM1250 Platinum is completely blank, but the other side features the ZM1250 logo stickered to it.

Things are pretty standard on the back of the unit with an on/off rocker switch and honeycomb mesh grill.

The modular connections are found on the front and the PCI-E connections are separate from the peripheral connections. The adhesive that is on here is as the unit came out of the box. It rubbed off with our fingers without issue and we suspect it was stuck on someone's hands as it was moving down the line.

The bottom of the unit houses the 140mm fan that provides cooling for the Zalman ZM1250 Platinum power supply.

While all the native cables are fully sleeved with nylon mesh, the modular cables are of the flat ribbon type.

Also included is the user manual, AC input cord, five cable ties and mounting screws.
