- 24pin PSU Shootout

Looking out for a futureproof power supply which offers such features as the new 24pin ATX standard, SATA power cables, and PCIe video card plugs? Madshrimps take a look at 3 of 'em today, two from "Zippy" being a 460W and also a whopping 700W model, as well as Silverstone's ST52F 520W PSU. All three look to be quite worthy of admiration, offering good stable power across the board.


Today we are looking at 3 new units that are of high quality and conform to the new extended ATX standard with 24 pin ATX headers, SATA power cables, and PCI Express video card power plugs. Intel Socket 775 platforms based on the 915/925 series chipsets and newer AMD PCI Express motherboards are supporting newer ATX extended power supplies meaning they will accept a 24 pin ATX header for improved power delivery.
