Zippy Gaming G1 600W Power Supply
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Unless you have researched power supplies, or work in a server environment, chances are you have never heard of Zippy. The company is a maker of professional-grade power supplies, which has recently expanded into the consumer market with its Gaming G1 series. Anandtech has just posted a review of the Zippy Gaming G1 GSM-6600P, a 600W power supply.
Heres what they had to say:
Zippy is producing all of their power supplies in Taiwan, and this is clearly visible in the build quality. The 12V rail is the most stable we have seen so far. We would have liked to see more PEG connectors instead of only two 6-pin connections, particularly for a "gaming" PSU, but for upper midrange or lower high-end configurations this should still be sufficient. With this 600W power supply you can definitely run higher-end systems, but you might want to look elsewhere if you're interested in quad core processors, overclocking, and dual high-end GPUs.
This Zippy PSU performs extremely well, however it is hard to recommend. Quite simply, its very loud. Im not too sure why though since the companys 850W unit also has an 80MM fan, yet is fairly quiet. Unless you are pure enthusiast who seeks absolutely rail stability above all else, look elsewhere. Having said that, this PSU is due for an update, so when Zippy adds 8-pin PCI-E connectors, perhaps they will address the noise issue. A price decrease would be welcome as well.
