PC gamers and enthusiasts looking for a high-performance power supply using low-profile, flat modular cabling may want to check out OCZ's latest Fatal1ty-branded release. Packing a tasty 750 watts, the PSU was obviously co-developed by twelve-time world champion Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel, and designed to meet the needs of his fellow (n00b) gamers. He also threw glowing red LED lights into the new PSU, possibly so that PC gamers will feel like their twitch-based skills are on fire right before he snipes off their head.
Tuesday OCZ said that the new Fatal1ty 750W was built to withstand hours upon hours of gaming, performing even at an elevated temperature of up to 45°C, nearly twice that of the industry standard. The PSU also features maximum and efficient power distribution, a thermally controlled 135-mm double-ball bearing fan for airflow at near-silent audible noise levels, and multiple, user-friendly connectors for multiple drives and video cards. It's also energy efficient, converting up to a full 85-percent of AC to DC power at typical loads.
"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."
Currently the Fatal1ty 750W power supply isn't listed online, however the previous 700W model sells for $105 to $135 USD at various outlets online. Newegg sells the 550W version for $70 USD here (opens in new tab).
this however is a good thing because the modxsteam psu's are great
I've owned 2 and can't say anything bad about either of them
yes, the 550 was a modxtreme with red lights, it was priced like a modxtreme with red lights! other PSU manufactures take an existing product, add lights and charge a bit more? so what? some people like the lights! I agree with what dj1001 says: the modxtreme psus are great! now you can get ones with lights for a bit more! yay! people who dismiss a product just because its got an irrelevant endorsement on it are just as bad as people who buy stuff just because its got an irrelevant endorsement on it.
I used to view Tom's as a respectable news source. Now I see that I was wrong...
