    OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and power supplies for computing devices and systems, has launched the ZX Series power supply series to answer consumer demand for a robust high-wattage solution that is also highly-efficient. The ZX Series is designed for best-in-class performance, reliability and also features 100% modular design for the ultimate customization for today’s high-end gaming systems and professional workstations.

    "The new OCZ ZX Series delivers on all levels with exceptional performance and efficiency as well as a sleek modular cable design that allows customers quick and easy configuration with just the cables they need,” said Charlie McMenomey , PSU Product Manager at OCZ Technology. “The fully modular design makes installation a breeze as well as helps improve airflow in systems loaded up with high performance components, and for the ultimate stability this premium PSU comes with a large diameter ultra-quiet fan design so consumers can focus on their games and applications without the distraction of fan noise.”

    The newest addition to the OCZ lineup completes the family of ultra-quiet, high-reliability PSUs in 850, 1000, and 1250 watts. Featuring an 80 Plus Gold certification, the ZX offers energy and cost savings with 92% efficiency (typical load) combined with a power output to meet the demands of the most component-heavy systems, including cutting-edge triple-graphics configurations. Additionally, the PSU is kept supremely cool with an ultra-quiet 140mm ball-bearing fan for superior noise reduction. As OCZ’s first fully-modular power supply, the ZX is ideal for system builders that desire total control over connector options to maintain a tidy case environment with maximum airflow.

    The ZX Series is tested and qualified for systems with multiple power-hungry drives and video cards by delivering up to 1250W of continuous power, and offers rock-solid, super-clean DC output, a powerful single +12V rail, and complete array of connectors including detachable ATX, dual CPU, and multiple PCIe and SATA pins. The ZX Series provides universal input and active PFC (Power Factor Correction) to effectively regulate input voltage and maintain a stable supply of power in an industry-standard ATX form factor to accommodate virtually all computer towers. With sheer power combined with maximum efficiency, the ZX Series is backed by a 5-Year warranty. For more information, visit the product pages of the 850W, 1000W and 1250W models.

    Is there a chance these power supplies are the exact same ones as the NZXT Hales? they all seem to have the same specs, I am not too familiar with PSU's but arent there really only 5 or 6 manufactorers (FTI, Seasonic, etc) and everyone else just buys fromm them and changes the logos around? i.e. Corsair

    Ok. List them. If I got an AX1200 it'd be for the reviews, not the name.

    Edit*
    I take it back. I'd also get it for the name. They have a great warranty service.

    I don't really see any reason you'd pick any of those over the AX. The only issue I've seen reported is the occasional squealy unit or bad fan, something all of those units you listed are prone to. The sparkle wolf tested even had a squeal, and for all we know that wasn't considered a defect. They might not take an rma on, it. On the other hand I know corsair does for the AX.

    i prefer the sparkle and honestly i hate the "well i'm going to buy a corsair cause it says corsair" that load annoys me i have never purchased one for exactly that reason they only get good sales thanks to bandwagoning heck when the first set of the new 430s came out people were panicking because it was a cheap PSU. i will stick to my thermaltake, antec and sparkle buys. you can keep your corsair its just a badged up seasonic (for most units) anyway.

    That seems like a fairly unreasonable reason to dislike a brand. And the oem is a) not always seasonic and b) often different, quite possibly better, than the seasonic branded equivalents. They're made to order, not carbon copies.

    My post said not all are seasonic. I don't think its unreasonable people buy intel because the box says intel. Corsair fanboys are like all others the products could give the same performance but no matter what anyone tells them their product is still better.

    Want the best get me an old wintact pcp&c turbocool no other psu has ever beaten them out. Until then I will take the sparkle as it is a good psu. Second to that a good ole cwt built thermaltake and after that enermax or silverstone. Corsair just isn't on my list never has been.
