OCZ Fatal1ty 1000W
OCZ is a name synonymous with all memory products including SSDs, which says a great deal for the company considering it was only founded in 2002, and is still considered a fledgling amongst some of the other manufacturers. OCZ has been manufacturing more than just memory modules for quite some time now, as they have dabbled in many areas of the computer industry, from computer cooling solutions like water blocks, pumps, and thermal paste, right down to power supplies and keyboards.
Power supplies are one area that OCZ has continued with success, and today we’re looking at the Fatal1ty 1000W unit. Named for the 12-time world champion Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, this power supply is of one of OCZ’s latest namesake products.
The drive to improve efficiency for power supplies is a ongoing goal, and with that in mind, this unit also comes with an 80PLUS Gold rating, but is also entirely geared to gamers that want something a bit more flashy. The Fatal1ty 1000W model is packed with features and appears to be very capable, at least on paper. We know that sheet specs certainly don’t tell the real story though, so let’s take a closer look at this new unit and get it on the bench to check out its performance.
