“ OCZ ZX Series 1000W - Power supply ( internal ) - ATX12V 2.2/ EPS12V - 80 PLUS Gold - AC 115/230 V - 1 kW - active PFC „
If you are a computer gamer you will probably have had your share of psu's and skimped on them money wise where ever possible. This ocz model features every possible type of connection available and because the power supply is modular you can remove the ones you do not need for effective cable management. This, combined with the high efficiency of the unit leads to better air flow and cooler pc temperatures which increases reliability and allows greater overclocking speeds.
It is also very eco friendly so your electricity bill will thank you for it without compromising your systems performance.
The pfc may regulate the power which is very nice for your components however the unit does not feature much in the way of electricity surge or spike protection as far as i can tell. This is easy to fix however with surge protected extension leads being under £20 these days.
The only other negative point about this unit is it has no rubber feet so if you are not carefull when placing this into your computer tower (which i would expect to be an atx tower as this power supply is large!) you may scratch the psu or the insides of your computer.
So even if your not using multiple gpu's or DAW's all day, this unit will stick with you for at least your next three systems and beyond and thus a worthwhile investment.
For any of you who are concerned with noise this unit is fairly quite but you can hear just about hear the fan on idle.
The ZX Series is the unsurpassed solution for driving today's Enthusiast and gaming systems.
