Cabling Arrangement

Cabling for the OCZ Fatal1ty 750W power supply is relatively simple. All cables are fully modular. The power supply features two separate ATX 4+4 cables, which is nice for those who have motherboard that can utilize them.

 

PCI-E connectors are given in the form of four connectors over two cables. There are also eight SATA connectors split over two cables and six Molex connectors on two more cables. Finally, OCZ has included a Molex to FDD adapter in case it is needed.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

 

 

A Look Inside

There isn't anything special going on inside with the OCZ Fatal1ty 750W power supply. As you can see, the board is designed to feature a reduced component count and is much shorter than the actual enclosure, meaning that it could be smaller if they wanted to make it that way. There are two heat sinks that run the length of the power supply to provide passive cooling for the unit.

A single Nippon Chemi-con bulk capacitor sits on the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side is littered with Suscon caps. The few times that we've seen these in the past, we've not had great ripple or voltage regulation results with them.

Globe Fan provides the active cooling for the Fatal1ty 750W power supply. It is a 135mm fan, model RL4B B135-512HH.
