Over the recent years, OCZ have really expanded in the memory business, churning out enthusiast level products without compromising on price. It's no surprise that they have made such a name for themselves and their popularity reflects their quality very much. Their success hasn't ended there. Like many other memory companies, OCZ have looked at expanding into new products and today we'll be looking at their new line of Fatal1ty Power Supply Series in the form of the 550W model. This is marketed under their Modular series and if previous Fatal1ty branded products are anything to go by, this should be an excellent performer worthy of the legendary gamer himself!

Some info on OCZ:

About OCZ:
Entering the memory market in August 2000, OCZ Technology was built around the determination to manufacture the best high speed DDR and RDRAM. OCZ was founded by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts, and our commitment to the end-user has not digressed. OCZ Technology has been an innovator in many areas. We were the first manufacturer to make Dual Channel optimized memory available to the public, which originally took advantage of nVidia's Twinbank or Dual DDR architecture, found in their nForce chipset. We have now taken that technology and tailored it for the Canterwood, and Granite Bay chipset's. OCZ developed and was the first to implement ULN technology, which has been a critical element in our manufacturing process for some time. We at OCZ diligently work to improve communication with CPU and motherboard chipset manufacturers prior to the release of their products. Only in this manner can we fine-tune our memory's SPD settings, ensuring a synergistic relationship between the memory module, memory controller, and microprocessor. In today?s rapidly evolving semiconductor industry, such communication is not simply research, but a necessary component of our manufacturing process.
