OCZ recently launched the new ZS series of power supplies, which includes 550W, 650W and 750W varieties. Although designed for those who are on a budget, the ZS series are capable of powering value-oriented gaming systems with both NVIDIA SLI and ATI CrossFireX modes with an array of connectors.
The PSU features only one +12V rail whose maximum power indicates that DC-DC converters are absent from this unit. Each of the PSU's rails is capable of outputting 22A and together they have a combined output of 130W. 12V power is handled via a single rail that is capable of 54A of power for a total of 648W of power. While this isn't the most spectacular output we have seen from a 750W unit, it should be more than sufficient.
Since we have to do with a budget PSU, the ZS750 isn't rated at 100% continuous output at 50C, but rather at a 40C. The ZS750 also lacks Over Power Protection and Over Temperature Protection.
Newegg had the best price for the ZS750 at the time of writing this article, as the unit was listed for $109.99. OCZ backs the ZS series of power supplies with a 3-year warranty.
