    Zalman ZM300A Power Supply


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    When you think of power supplies, the first companies that come to mind are, Enermax, Antec, PC Power & Cooling, and Zalman. “ZALMAN?!?!? HOLD UP! Zalman makes those Flower Heatsinks right?!!! Not power supplies…Yes Zalman makes the beautiful flowering heatsinks, but what they want to be known for is their line of Noise Prevention products. They understand the need for users to have a high performance system, but also strive to make it quiet. They were the world first in reducing computer's noise down to lower than 20dB, creating a more user friendly computing environment. How do they do it??? With their Computer Noise Prevention System.

    Intro: When you think of power supplies, the first companies that come to mind are, Enermax, Antec, PC Power & Cooling, and Zalman. “ZALMAN?!?!? HOLD UP! Zalman makes those Flower Heatsinks right?!!! Not power supplies…Yes Zalman makes the beautiful flowering heatsinks, but what they want to be known for is their line of Noise Prevention products. They understand the need for users to have a high performance system, but also strive to make it quiet. They were the world first in reducing computer's noise down to lower than 20dB, creating a more user friendly computing environment. How do they do it??? With their Computer Noise Prevention System.

    The explanation of CNPS (Computer Noise Prevention System) is taken from Zalman’s site:

    "CNPS(Computer Noise Prevention System) is a system that cuts traditional computer system's noise of 30dB or higher to 20dB or lower, which is below what a normal user can usually notice.

    CNPS is achieved with Zalman's world first technologies such as CPU & VGA FHS(Flower HeatSink), which has shorter heat conductance path and surface area that is 3 to 10 times as large as traditional coolers, and NP(Noise Prevention) Fans.

    To create a full CNPS computer, you also need the NP Power Supply and NP Hard Disk."


    Packaging & What’s Included: Plain Jane white box…But you’re not payin' for a pretty box now are ya???

     

    The box includes:

    1) One Power Supply.
    2) One Multi-connector for Fan (Use this to supply power to extra fan. More on this nice little surprise after.)
    3) One Power Cord for AC Power Source. (Not included in some countries)
    4) One User Manual.

    Unfortunately Zalman does not wrap the main ATX connector that most of the other ‘Big Boys’ mentioned above do. The first thing that struck me when looking at the PSU is that they do not use the 2 fan config that we have all grown accustomed to. Not to worry, what Zalman does is use heat-sensor circuitry that controls the cooling fan's speed (rpm) in relation to the temperature within the power supply. By using only one fan the Zalman PSU keep the noise level down, while still providing adequate cooling measures.

     

    This is my favorite little toy now…

    The Multi-Connector. How many late nights were spent stripping and soldering together old molex connectors to make 5V and/or 12V lines (with a couple of 7V for good measure). Zalman has made things easy for you. One molex connector, two 5V lines (Red Wires, White Connector) and two 12V lines (Yellow Wires, Black Connectors). ‘Nuff said…
