Default Is the ZALMAN ZM850-HP 850W PSU any good?

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone here can comment on the ZALMAN ZM850-HP 850W SLI/CrossFire PSU. I was thinking of purchasing one of these units and not sure if it of excellent/good/fair/poor quality.

I did look at Ste's posts on the various PSU brands and saw he recommends the 650w and 750w versions...just wondering what people here thought of the ZM850 model.

Thanks,

Soar

Yha, jonnyguru rated the zm600 model really well
Zalman ZM600-HP 600W Review

So the series looks good, so Its a good presumption it'll be a good psu.

patonb, thanks for the post and for directing me to jonnyguru's review on the 650w version. Heatpipes in a PSU? Wow, I have never heard of that before!

I hope the 850w version will be a good choice...because I just purchased one at a great price!

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Soar

PS Hey Ste, come out, come out, wherever you are!
