    OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs), memory modules, and power supplies for computing devices and systems, unveils the Fatal1ty 750 Watt power supply, a new high-performance PSU targeted at gamers and enthusiasts that prefer modular cabling.

    OCZ is dedicated to delivering premium power solutions, and the new 750W was co-developed with Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, twelve-time World champion, to meet the specific needs of fellow gamers. "I worked with OCZ on this new modular 750W Fatal1ty power supply to give the strength and power to my PC; I need to win!!," stated Johnathan “Fatal1ty’” Wendel. Featuring new “low-profile” flat modular cabling with efficiencies in airflow and control, the Fatal1ty 750W PSU not only provides stable, efficient power, but also unique, user-friendly connectors that promote greater flexibility and organization inside the PC case. Featuring glowing red LED lights to add style, Fatal1ty power supplies are an ideal upgrade for users who need a computer setup able to take on hours of non-stop gaming. Additionally, Fatal1ty 750W power supplies are designed to perform even at elevated temperatures of up to 45°C, nearly twice that of the industry standard.

    “Working with Fatal1ty to build the ultimate PSU for a high-performance gaming environment was a great experience,” commented Ryan Edwards, Director of Product Management at OCZ Technology. “Jonathan and OCZ share a common commitment to performance and reliability aimed at supporting the user in even the most intense competitive gaming and enthusiast environments. With the new Fatal1ty 750, gamers and power users alike can be confident their system is fueled by a top-notch PSU with the latest in technology and design.”

    The Fatal1ty 750W features a single +12V rail for maximum and efficient power distribution, a thermally controlled 135mm double-ball bearing fan for airflow at near-silent audible noise levels, and an array of connectors for multiple power-hungry drives and video cards. Offering excellent energy and cost-savings, the Fatal1ty 750W has an 80-Plus Bronze certification, converting up to a full 85% of AC to DC power at typical loads.

    Fully compliant with the latest ATX12V and EPS12V specifications, the Fatal1ty 750W Series accommodates a wide range of cases, and comes backed by a 5-year warranty and tech support for additional peace of mind.

    Pretty much.
    in Aus, theres like a hundred dollar markup on the non modular model compared to other branded 700w PSU's (antec, corsair, etc)

    TBQH im not a fan of these, then again PSU's are one of the only things OCZ never has wow'd me with.

    Hiatus

    hes stopped actively competing in tournaments/compeitions to put time into his 'business' otherwise known as Fatal1ty, Inc. wiki states his last game was in 2007, there is no other additional info at this time.

    wiki:

    so you can say hes dried up

    "elevated temperatures of up to 45°C, nearly twice that of the industry standard". If we are talking "standard" and "twice" and "temperature" in the same sentence then at least use degree Kelvin. So nearly twice (45 C = 318,13 K) would imply that other PSU only can operate at 159 K = minus 114 C. Hmm. Mine works fine at 25 C, even with +85 % efficency.

    I wonder if the OEM for this OCZ 750W is Impervio?

    More Fatal1ty crap that I will not be buying. Seriously, I don't know anything that actually actively buys his crap.

    Back to the topic, 700w? That's it? Jeez, if I were him, I wouldn't be branding anything less than 1kW for a true hardcore gamer ;)

    hardcore gamer could mean a lot of things. but it doesnt mean you have to HAVE a 1k PSU. alot of the 'hardcore gamers' on TPU run between 650s-850's, that doesnt make us any less hardcore. we just know how to build a tight, lean & mean keyboard bashing machine without having to overspec requirements unless its truely needed. its all factored into the cost of the machine. & Quality 1K PSUs come at a price not all of us can afford or need let alone buying a overpriced fatality branded one when the exact same product minus the red LEDs & the fatality badge costs upto 10-20% less.

    Ok.. so its kinda dumb for him to go business venturing without holding his title.. I mean, how can next gen kids know who this fatal1ty guy is even.. heck, if Jeffrey R. Yee made the same path, you would go who the f*ck is Jeffrey R. Yee?

    I bet this guy has posters and photos of his glory days mounted on some carnal altar of some sort. Idolizing himself and stuff.

    Ima sense hobo box Fatal1ty ed. coming up

    well... not entirely - the guy carved a name for himself in the gaming world. everyone either knows who he is or they know his tag which later became his business name.

    if he was just some average guy competiting in tournaments etc etc & getting average scores people wouldnt remember him. but some how hes proved that hes a cut above the rest & his result are pretty consistant too, to the point where people might want to be more like him & be at the 'top of their game' & thats where his hardware/hardware endorsements come into play. to a lesser extent, the same thing applies to buying a signiture guitar. even though you play with the exact same guitar & amp as Hendrix or slash, it still doesnt mean that you will sound like them but people still want to buy signiture model guitars anyway because it brings them that much closer to their idol.

    he doesnt need to hold his title - hes probably getting loads more cash off edorsements & fatality branded hardware then he could win from any tournaments hes ever competed in & as the saying goes "laughing his way to the bank"

    I wonder if having all of the Fatality logos on your stuff ie: cases, coolers etc; and now PSU"s, is like having all the rings of power?

    no - it just makes you pretty lame. fatality products usually have very little difference to the original item before the logo got slapped on it. I got an fatality zalman gpu cooler & broken fatality Xfi titanium. the cooler does an extra 100 or 200more RPM on the fan & has red LEDs instead of zalmans plain or blue LEDs - the fan extra fan RPM might come in handy as it was mounted on a heavily overclocked X1800XT. the sound card comes with an i/o shield that covers most of the card & thats pretty much the only difference. otherwise the soundcard is the same as the standard one. bottomline is you pay an additional price premium just for the fatality tag & maybe some small stupid unnecessary tweaks otherwise the product itself is no different from the non fatality varient.
