ThinkComputers last reviewed a power supply unit from primarily cooling company Zalman in 2008, the ZM850-HP. Now, we have in our hands a much newer model building upon three years of innovation and standardization: the ZM1000-HP Plus. The ZM1000-HP Plus features a dual heatpipe cooling system, lots of connectors, modular cables, and 80PLUS Silver certification for efficiency. See how the unit measures up in this review.
The ZM1000-HP Plus comes in a black box with a plastic handle. The unit is pictured on the outside of the box and teamed with a giant 80PLUS Silver logo. On the rear, there’s a multi-lingual bullet point list of the highlights of the unit, such as dual heatpipe cooling, sub-1W standby, quad 12V rails, 140mm fan, and modular cables.
The PSU is well-padded in bubblewrap and inner cardboard boxes.
The box includes the PSU, manuals, a power cable, the modular cables, and screws.
