A year and a half ago, OCZ did an update to their Fatal1ty series of power supplies. They took a bold leap and offered the first power supply on the market with individually sleeved cables. On top of that, they stepped up the quality of the unit with better components and increased efficiency. The unit was well received and ended up being a choice power supply for many.
Fast forward to today and OCZ has once again refreshed the Fatal1ty series of power supplies. This time around, they've taken the power supply and given it full modularity. Unfortunately, it doesn't retain the full individual cable sleeving that it had in the previous version. It now features a power cable that is fully sleeved and the remainder of the cables are now of the flat ribbon type.
This seems like a bit of a downgrade and even more so when you consider that the 750W model we are reviewing today is only rated for 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency, when last year's model was rated for Gold efficiency.
The unit still bears the signature of the infamous gamer Jonathan Wendel though, so that has to count for something, right? Keep reading to find out.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The OCZ Fatal1ty 750W power supply features a single 12V rail that is rated for 62.5A or 750W, which means the power supply is capable of 100% output on the 12V rail. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for25A each with a combined maximum output of 150W. The 5VSB rail is rated for 3A of 15W. Maximum combined output for the power supply is 750W.
As far as the features go, the Fatal1ty 750W is filled with almost everything that we look for. There is a full suite of protections including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP. OCZ had changed from a partially modular to a full modular unit with this iteration of the series. All cables are either fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon type. The Fatal1ty 750W bears the 80 PLUS Bronze certification for efficiency, which is two steps down from the previous generation's Gold rating. Finally, while OCZ does not rate the Fatal1ty 750W for 100% continuous output at 50C, they do rate it for so at 45C.
OCZ lists the Fatal1ty 750W with an MSRP of $109.99. Even though the unit has been out for well over a month, it doesn't seem to have dropped at all. In fact, the cheapest we have been able to find the power supply has been at Newegg, which has it for the $109.99 MSRP, but also tacks on an additional $7.35 shipping fee for a total of $117.34. OCZ backs the Fatal1ty 750W with a five year warranty.
