It's been awhile, but we managet to get our hands on some new PSU's, namely - OCZ's ZT 650W and PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK3 400W. I've been a heavy user of OCZ's PSU's back from the very beginning (still have quite a few of their *Stream PSU's) and PCP&C's - the TurboCool 1kW is still our main power supply for testing mobos, CPU's and various other things. Are these CPU's successful heirs of those legendary PSU's? Let's check them and find out.
First stop, ZT650W. This completely modular PSU comes in a nice box filled with cables, as it has 2xPCIe, 5xIDE/SATA, one CPU and one ATX cable that need to be attached to the PSU in various combinations to make everything work. Markings on the PSU can clearly guide anyone with five-second-or-more attention span, so that should be no problem. Of course, connectors on these cables are also color-coded to make it even easier so - the grey connectors on the PSU and their cables have grey attacments, while all the rest of them are black. This will make your life a bit eaier as you can't mistake a PCI-E cable for CPU cable, even if you tried to.
Here are some pictures:
