Conclusions

Once again Zalman has lived up to their reputation and delivered a high-quality product.  The DC outputs were very stable, clean and remained within very tight tolerance.  The overall efficiency was very good and the heat pipe assisted cooling system did a good job while producing minimal noise.  EZ grip connectors, sleeved cables, and blue LED accent lighting are all icing on the cake.  And for the majority of power users and/or gamers who realistically need 300~400 watt output, the ZM600-HP will be a perfect match.  Overall, I really like this power supply — highly recommended!

 

The Zalman ZM600-HP is currently available with a MSRP of $159.99 USD.
