First time I saw those was on a Hiper Type R (POS Crap shitty burn up my f'in motherboard) PSU. Nice connectors though. The only downside is screwing in the locking rings can be a PITA after the PSU is installed, and I wish they were color coded.

IS that a response to me? If so I don't need a PSU, I got a Enermax Galaxy 1250w, things far more than enough. Just was saying maybe a long time, a long long long time from now, maybe I'll buy one. :wtf:

No No not directed at you at all. My point was why buy an OCZ badged PC&P PSU? Why not just buy a real PC&P PSU.

ANyway, since a few years, OCZ have some nice PSU, so I woN,t worry about this PSU ;)

I know the old PCP&C are made on seasonic base and that the MK III 500/600/700 watts , if I remember well, are modified seasonic M12 II.

I don,t know if they kept the same for this one..
