Quoted from SilverStone Zeus ZM1350 Reviews:Check out these quotes from SilverStone Zeus ZM1350 reviews & previews
"The SilverStone Zeus ZM1350 is SilverStone's newest flagship product and from the copy and features list that comes with it, it surely looks the part of a flagship product. Between overcolocker friendly features like adjustable potentiometers and extremely tight voltage regulation to modder friendly features like a fully modular cable design the ZM1350 sets itself up to be just about all things to all people, except for maybe the HTPC folks with the use of the 80mm fan and the huge size. However, while trying to do so much for some many people, perhaps the eyes came off the ball a bit over at SilverStone as there are certainly a few areas where this unit just did not shine today. Between the inconsistent ability to start and run, the only "OK" but worse than advertised voltage regulation, the loud fan, and the efficiency which was just not quite up to par, we end up largely overlooking some of those nice features and the excellent Transient Load Test results as this unit just doesn't do any of the basic aspects of a power supply extremely well."
"Zeus is back at SilverStone and the new ZM1350 power supply lived up to its name. It can deliver up to 1350 watts (1500 watts peak) at up to 50°C continuously and is housed in one of the largest (longest) enclosures we have encountered. The Zeus ZM1350 power supply produced very good voltage regulation with very good AC ripple suppression and meets the 80 Plus Silver criteria for efficiency. It comes with a large assortment of all modular cables and includes a switch for selecting single or multi +12V operation and pots for tweaking the +3.3V, +5V and +12V outputs."
"To sum up, and this is for sure, the new ZM1350 is not a PSU that addresses the average Joe or your average system. On the contrary, enthusiast users and, more specifically, hard-core overclockers will highly appreciate its features, especially the ultra-low ripple, its stable outputs, and the ability to easily adjust the voltages of the major rails. Its high operating-noise will probably be less of an issue to its specific target audience since such users are used to high-noise devices due to the number of noisy fans they already use to cool various components. None of them will even notice the ZM1350's low efficiency on benchmark-specific breaks. This PSU will meet the competition head-on if Silverstone manages to offer the unit for a price closer to the $300 mark."
