Introduction

Today we've got quite a bit of a treat for the hardcore PSU guys out there. We're taking a look at the new Silverstone Zeus 1350W power supply. Those who frequent our power supply reviews know that we've covered just about every Silverstone power supply they've released in the last several years. They've never let us down and we couldn't wait to get our hands on the Zeus to see what it could do.

For those who aren't familiar with the Zeus series from Silverstone, it was originally a server/workstation line that emphasized on better voltage regulation, higher operating temperatures and heavy-duty components. This caught on with the extreme overclockers so they've added a few features to cater to their desires such as adjustable voltage settings and modular cabling. Despite adding some features for overclockers, they've still kept the server/workstation design such as the rear mounted fan as server chassis rely on front to back ventilation instead of bottom to rear.

Keep reading as we tear into the Zeus 1350W and see just how well it stacks up to what we're used to seeing from Silverstone.

As you would expect from a power supply that is geared for server use and extreme overclockers, the feature list is completely filled out. All protections are present including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP, and OTP. The Zeus 1350W is fully modular and all cables are fully sleeved. The power supply is rated for 80 PLUS Silver efficiency, which is much higher than you will find many server power supplies rated for. The Zeus is also rated for 100% continuous output at 50C and even 80% (1080W) at 60C.

Silverstone has an MSRP of $349.99 on the Zeus 1350W power supply which places it in a very middle of the road price point. Antares Pro has it for sale a bit cheaper at $318.99 after shipping, which gives it even more value for the money. Silverstone backs the power supply with a five year warranty.
