  1. The OCZ is probably OK, but at 550W I would prefer this BFG, which has been well reviewed:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817702008&Tpk=LS550
    Same price :)

    For a good chunk more, you can get the new and highly rated Antec modular 750W:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=Antec+750W&x=0&y=0

    It's probably worth the extra, if your budget isn't tight. The PC P&C thekid listed would be the less expensive and almost as good one.
  2. That OCZ gets pretty good reviews, the Fatal1ty series is supposed to be their best line of PSUs. Its also modular...the price is just too good to pass up I think. Its a brand new item and OCZ cut the prices on them to get some out there, the price they have won't last that long.
  3. I'm still looking for the review on that one :)
    But I did see Anandtechs roundup:
    http://www.anandtech.com/casecoolingpsus/showdoc.aspx?i=3516&p=35

    They gave the LS-550W third place. The internal shots of the OCZ 500W ModXstream look pretty similar to the 550W, save for some better heatsinks.
  4. You can't really go wrong with any of the choices provided.

    Why would OCZ have CWT and Sirtech, whoever they may be manufacture any of
    Either way, I'm sure the Fatality series must be made by PC power and cooling.
    To save money.

    But can you convince us you're right? It looks like CWT to me, with a fancy name and red LED.

    It's not that hard to get a PSU tested by one of the review sites out there. I kinda do agree that "the price is just too good" ;)

    How would they save money by paying another third party to build their psu's when they already own PC power and cooling.
    So you think they LOSE money by having an OEM build their PSUs? :sarcastic:
    I guess you're thinking PC Power and Cooling builds Fatality PSUs?
    3 PSUs in the OCZ line up:
    OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W $80 with $20 rebate and made by ????
    OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W $100 with $30 discount and $20 rebate made by FSP review
    OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W $130 with $20 discount and $20 rebate made by FSP
  8. I found a review of the 700W Fatal1ty PSU. Looks like it might be a re-badged OCZ EliteXStream

    "The insides of the Fatal1ty are fairly cramped, with most components sitting underneath the two black aluminium heatsinks that span the length of the unit. The layout is quite different to most of the other OCZ PSU's we've seen in the past such as the GameXStream and ModXStream and therefore it's quite possible that OCZ has picked a new OEM this time around."
