    Today we take a look at what Silverstone calls the Zeus. The ST652ZF is a beefy power supply rated at 650 watts of continuous output.

    Yeah price is the only thing that might turn people off, otherwise, not much more you can ask from a power supply

    erm, pehaps an additional 80mm fan to cool it down a little?

    you mentioned it does get hot after loading it.

    as for the pricing, $300 for a 6xx watt ... that's like $1 to 2watt.. sounds alright...

    SILVERSTONE ST65ZF is NOT a silent PSU !!!

    This PSU is LOUD. It uses 1x 80mm fan at a very high RPM and sounds like a server PSU (loud whine) and not suitable for general home use. Why was it given a "silent" rating in the review. The review was very misleading. I bought this unit for £125.00 and returned it.
    I am now using the ENERMAX 600 Noisetaker instead, cost me £99.00 (uses 2x fans - 80mm & 90mm at lower RPM and RPM is user variable). The ENERMAX noise is fine for home use and I am using it in my HTPC (2x 6800U SLI-Mode). Please be more accurate with your reviews in future.

    My unit's fan may not be controlled properly by the temperature monitoring, the fan remains at the same speed, it doesn't spin faster after running for some time which may be why I found it silent and warm.
    I will edit to add in this, thanks for the feedback.

    damn nice 12v rails
    It has a total of 4 individual 12v rail supplies, with 18, 16, 13 and 8 Amps on each respective rails. This gives a total of 42 Amps on the 12v rails, with a peak of 45 Amps
