OCZ ZX 850W 80PLUS Gold
We’ve seen a recent rise in popularity of multiple GPUs, hexa core CPUs, and more power hungry system components. While manufacturers are working on power efficiency for their products, the general trend has been higher energy consumption. However, we’ve seen a real interest in the consumer marketplace for power supplies that achieve high efficiency levels, which can lower energy bills in money-conscious times such as these. But the need to power these systems in a stable environment is greater than ever, and the units required to keep our computer systems safe is critical.
OCZ has been offering power supplies for quite some time, but their latest premium offering is the ZX Series 80+ Gold Certified lineup. With a few different models ranging from 850W up to 1250W, today we’re looking at the 850W version. Let’s take a closer look at this unit and see how it fares.
