    Nice. Looks like the purchase of PCP&C is paying off. The modular 1000w looks mighty yummy.
    WarEagleAU says thanks.

    I think so. I hate wire messes.


    There aren't very many 80+ Gold PSUs out there.

    It all depends on what you need... I need less cables in my cases for two reasons.
    1. aesthetics and practicality. I love a tidy and clean case.
    2. better air movement through the case, thus lower overall temps.:cool:

    they look good.

    OCZ have moved away from the LED fans (which i've been nagging them to do for years), and got a lineup of high-specced, single rail PSU's.

    Seems they'ev done the same as corsair, and under-rated them too - the 1000W says its an 1100W peak, and the 850W says its a 940W peak.

    Very much so. If it wasn't for my current corsair PSU i would have a total of 5 unused cables floating about inside my case.

    I love OCZ . Good and reliable PSU`s . I owned the fatal1ty edition 550W and the 600W ModXStream Pro . Very pleased with these two products . The 600W version powered one GTX 260 216 sp , x4 955 , 4 gb of ram , 2 hdd`s , 2 dvdrw , 6 fans , card reader , lcd display with fan controller . I even added a peltier unit for some cooling experiments directly to the 12V rail and the PSU was still hanging in there . I recommend OCZ ! Since i bought my 750w Corsair i wont be upgrading my PSU in the near future , but if i will need a better one or more powerful PSU i will definitely go with OCZ . The OCZ Z850 850W 80+ Gold PSU looks very tempting :)

    They are not really under-rated. Continuous is the amount of power the PSU can supply indefinitely while the Peak power is only sustainable for a short period.

    Either way, It would take quite the rig to max out any of these models.

    Very good to see Manufactures cranking out Silver and Gold level 80+ certifications. Also good to see Corsair and a few others offering 90% efficiency.

    Bleh... I am really not a fan of these ridicu-watt units everyone is cranking out these days. For those who haven't noticed, computers are getting more efficient, not less! A mid-range gaming PC (X3/4850) runs perfect on a quality 450W PSU. Even if you crank it up to an X4/4870 (or Intel/Nvidia equivalent), you're good with 550W!

    But alas, all the high-grade units being put out today are in the 700W+ range, which imo is entirely ridiculous for the majority of users. It ought to be pretty easy to make an 80+G 500/600W, so why not? After all, the mid-range is where real volume sales are, and (some) people place a great deal of value on 80P and high-grade components, even if they haven't got a socket-sucker for a rig!

    Try to voltmod and OC on that 450w unit reliably. Not gonna happen, unless it's a Corsair, or similar quality unit. Some of the crazy setups on this site need the high juice psus.
