Sweet, these would look good in my rig, too bad they don't have higher watt PSU's

of course they do, though 750 is sufficient to power my notoriously power hungry 6990 (6970x2) & oc'd phenom II + a full atx case of hdd,odd, and add cards. In fact my UPS rarely reads over 500-600. Only when I put my brothers hexacord i7 and dual titans did i need more, yet still under 1kw

I've always thought Fatal1ty was a really bad name for a power supply.

OCZ makes some good quality PSU. I hope they keep the pricing right.

Also that belly add on the right hand side of this page is freaking me out..

Since some OCZ PSUs have cut corners in the past (e.g. 2nd-rate capacitors), I'll wait for a competent technical review on these before passing judgement. Who makes these? What is the MSRP?

OCZ 750W is the best modular for the price. I wonder how these will do.

The OEM is still Sirtec/High Power. It looks like its based on the High Power Element Smart series platform.

Pureoverclock's review of the 750W model said that it was slightly noisy at load and the cables aren't long enough for full tower cases.

Cables not long enough for full tower cases have always been a major complaint of OCZ PSUs so this hasn't changed. It was a direction made by OCZ to reduce the BOM.

Well, shorter cables are a good thing for the large majority of people who use reasonably sized cases.

i have been rolling a fatality 550 for like 5 years now. I built an core2 quad q6600 with a 8800gtx in like 2008. That machine has had hours of hours of games played on it. Still runs great although it is now used as a HTPC so it only gets lite duty work.

I really wish people would stop buying fagtality stuff. Youre paying more money for the same specs as the standard item just with a former "pro" gamer's name on it... so youre paying that guy's house payment for him and getting nothing extra for it. Just stop buying anything with his logo feces on it.

Does this Wendel guy even exist? I have never seen anything tech news or game news related to him other than companies offering him money for his name.

Did he do something world changing say 12 years ago?

About as relevant as Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards Ski goggles.

Actually these PSUs were cheaper than the others for quite some time until the hiked the price up again.

They were clearing the distribution channel of the the old multiple +12V rail models in preparation for the new single +12V rail models.
