Under the Hood
Here are a few pictures showing the layout and components inside the Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus 1,000W power supply. The overall build quality appears to be very good. Both of the main heatsinks have copper heat pipes attached to conduct waste heat away to two arrays of aluminum fins that are cooled by the exhaust air flowing over them as it leaves the backside of the PSU enclosure.
The primary section uses two Rubycon 270uF caps rated at 420V and 85°C. The main bridge rectifier is mounted on its own dedicated heatsink without any assistance from heat pipes.
The secondary side of the Zalman power supply is populated by Teapo caps and is dominated by a lot of distribution wiring.
