Inside the Box

Opening things up, we see that Zalman has two boxes inside the exterior packaging. The top box contains only the power supply and the bottom box is for all modular cables and everything else included.

Inside the accessory box we find the modular cables, power cable, user manual, and a bag containing mounting screws, cable ties, and a Molex to dual 3-pin fan adapter.

One side of the ZM1000-HP Plus displays a label denoting the PSU.

The other side of the PSU shows quality assurance testing and model/serial numbers.

The top of the ZM1000-HP Plus is where you will find the I/O specification label.

Taking a look at the front of the power supply, we can see the various connections for the modular cables as well as an added vent for increased airflow.

The back utilizes a honeycomb mesh design that enables as much airflow as possible. The only spaces that obstruct airflow are the necessities: mounting holes, power switch, and power input.

The bottom of the ZM1000-HP shows off the large 140mm dual ball bearing fan and wire mesh grill.

One thing that we noticed was that Zalman didn't use a cable guard/grommet around where the wires exit the power supply. This wouldn't be a huge deal if all of the cable's sleeves started inside the PSU, but they don't. As you can see above, the wires are left to rub on the edge of the PSU housing and could possibly become bare over time.
