OCZ Technology Announces New Fatal1ty 550 W and 750 W Power Supplies

OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and power management solutions for computing devices and systems, today announced the availability of its new Fatal1ty Series power supply products, first unveiled at Computex 2013. This refreshed lineup for gamers features high efficiency, a fully modular cable design, and a robust feature-set to meet the demanding needs of multi-GPU systems and provide exceptional system stability.

The latest enthusiast-grade series from OCZ, these new Fatal1ty PSUs were co-developed with twelve-time world champion Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel to meet the specific needs of fellow gamers, and will be available in 550 W and 750 W models designed to offer performance and reliability coupled with an updated feature set. With up to 85% energy efficiency at typical loads, the Fatal1ty series features an excellent 80-Plus Bronze rating. Both models feature a powerful single +12V rail for exceptional power distribution, along with 135 mm temperature and load-controlled fans with trademark glowing red LEDs for stylish and silent operation for high-end gaming rigs.

"The Fatal1ty line of PSUs have been popular among gamers looking for high quality, reliable power for the latest GPUs and power hungry system components," said Bob Roark, VP of Power Management at OCZ. "The new Fatal1ty 550 W and 750 W PSUs feature a brand new core and are not only quieter and more energy efficient but also provide customers with enhanced flexibility with a complete modular cable design."

"I've been working with OCZ for many years and these latest PSUs continue the string of quality products for which the Fatal1ty brand is so well known," stated Fatal1ty.

Fatal1ty Series PSUs are built-to-last with premium components and heavy-duty protection circuitries that utilize specialized DC-to-DC converters for compatibility with Intel's Haswell platform, and are able to operate at lower power usage when off or in standby mode. Equipped with a fully modular cable management system and complete array of connectors, these latest PSUs promote an organized case environment that maximizes airflow by eliminating unnecessary wiring, ideal for case-modders and system builders opting to maintain the aesthetics in customized PC builds.

With an improved feature-set in a sleek, modular design for gamers, the latest Fatal1ty power supply models are available immediately and are backed with a 3-year (550 W model) or 5-year (750 W model) warranty.

OCZ has got the fatal1ty brand all wrong - A mouse - A mobo - A GPU - A CPU even is OK, but a PSU ? :shadedshu

Neither OCZ nor Jonny Boy would know much about quality PSUs. This branding nonsense is for the gullible kids using Mommy's money to buy toys.

If you want a top quality PSU at a good price buy one from Seasonic or a top rated Gold/Plainum model in JonnyGuru or Hardware Secrets testing. Don't be deceived by brand names and claims, use objective scientific tests results to see which PSUs are the best performaing and value.

Johnny Guru reviewed the 1000W fatal1ty, and gave it 8.4, which is pretty reasonable. So you clearly are talking out of thy buttocks. There are better PSU's out there, but that's not to say that this isnt good for some users.

Just about what I was going to say. With the addition that ALL products are god damned marketed for gullible people to varying degrees, it's just up to you to decide where your wallet ends and where your bullshit meter hits red.

If they release a refresh for the 1000W version (that is out of stock everywhere as of now/EOL)... I'm in. The first one was Gold rated a great PSU overall... not excellent, but for 2010 when it came out, it was nothing to sneeze at.

Otherwise Corsair RM1000... for which I hope there's reviews soon.

They are mid tier power supplies priced to match. I beat the crap out of my modxtreme pro 550w pushing it to 550w consistently. It did die, but it was almost out of warranty and ocz sent a 750w back (retail sealed box) and paid for the damaged motherboard. I will buy a decent psu with a good warranty and good rma service any day.
