Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel has had his nicknamed emblazoned on OCZ Technology power supplies for well over a year now, and OCZ is still in cahoots with the pro gamer. As a matter of fact, the company has added a 750W model to its line of Fatal1ty-branded PSUs.
The new unit can pump out 650W of 12V power via no less than four discrete rails. OCZ also includes a 135-mm double-ball-bearing fan, red LED lights, a totally bitchin' Fatal1ty sticker, and a modular cabling system. The unit comes with both SLI and 80 Plus Bronze certification—the latter means the PSU's efficiency should lie in the 82-85% range at loads of 20-100%. Oh, and OCZ offers a cool five years of warranty coverage.
You can tell Wendel stands behind the product, because OCZ's press release quotes him as saying, "I worked with OCZ on this new modular 750W Fatal1ty power supply to give the strength and power to my PC; I need to win!!" (Yes, the two exclamation points are part of the quote.) OCZ Director of Product Management Ryan Edwards, meanwhile, says working with Wendel was a "great experience," and that the pro gamer shares OCZ's "commitment to performance and reliability aimed at supporting the user in even the most intense competitive gaming and enthusiast environments."
If you, too, want a power supply with a bitchin' Fatal1ty sticker and matching red LED, but 750W is too rich for your blood, OCZ also offers a similar 550W unit. That product goes for $69.99 shipped at Newegg, but you can get the price down to $39.99 after a mail-in rebate and coupon code.
