Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus 1000W Power Supply Review

Final Thoughts
The Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus is a mighty fine PSU. Its 80PLUS Silver and SLI certification, plus the dual heatpipe cooling system and excellent connectivity.

I would have liked to see Japanese capacitors throughout the whole unit, though, and not just the first stage. The price is also still up there near the $250 mark, but it’s competitive with similarly spec’d models from competitors.

ThinkComputers gives the Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus a 9 out of 10 score. As I can find very few faults with it, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be using it in my next build, so I’ll bestow upon it the Editor’s Choice Award, as well.

Pros:
  • Solid and stable
  • Very quiet
  • Modular
  • Decent warranty
  • 80PLUS Silver rated efficiency
Cons:
  • Expensive (but competitively priced)
  • Japanese capacitors only in part of the unit
