Even though we wrote about it two days ago, the Silent Pro Hybrid 1300W PSU from Cooler Master is still fresh in our minds, and so is its high price tag ($299.99 / €225).
Now we can finally write about some power supplies that aren't inaccessible to everyone who isn't rich.
Not that such PSUs don't get released often, because they do, but they don't often make the news either. Their makers seldom put together a press release for them, since there isn't anything revolutionary to eulogize.
The Zalman ZM-LE is one low-end power supply series that didn't just get unceremoniously tossed into store shelves. Granted, we have Overclockers Ukraine
to thank for that, but still.
Compliant with the ATX 2.3 specification, the line has 400W and 500W members, both of which were originally manufactured by Fortron.
The ZM-LE PSUs utilize a dual 12V rail design, sleeved cables (non-modular), 120 mm temperature-controlled fans and one or two PCI Express connectors (6-pin x 1 on the 400W, 6-pin + 8-pin on the 500W).
In that same order, their prices are of $36 / 28 Euro and $46 / 36 Euro.
