OCZ 1000W Fatal1ty Series Power Supply Review

2. Package, device details

In keeping with OCZ's Fatal1ty packaging theme, the PSU's big box is colored in black and red, with Wendel's visage on the front. The 80PLUS Gold certification is also prominently displayed.

One side of the box also gives the cable and connector availability list:

The back of the box lists the basic features of the PSU, some technical specs and the I/O specs for the unit.

Inside the box is a generous accessory package, with the modular cables stored in a black separate bag, along with an Instruction manual, AC power cord, black mounting screws, and some black plastic zip ties. Everything is well packaged and secured in dense foam.

The Fatal1ty 1000W is coated in a dark lightly textured finish, making it resistant to fingerprints and scratches. There's plenty of stickers along the sides of the unit as well. OCZ has also rounded the edges of the device for convenient handling while installing it.

As we previously mentioned the PSU is not entirely modular, and some essential are already plugged into the the PSU. The cables are individually-sleeved, in an innovative approach for OCZ. The sleeving on the individual cables looks solid and prove the high-quality standards of this PSU.

The PSU offers a total of 10 modular connections, which should be enough to make full use of the available wattage:

The back has a standard honeycomb mesh vent with AC input and on/off switch:

The bottom side includes a standard 140mm LED fan that provides the airflow to keep the power supply cool. The light emitted from the fan casts a red glow in your PC case and your room, especially when lights are off..

The power supply utilizes a single 12V rail design to deliver most of the power for the unit - 83A/996W. The 3.3V and 5V rails are capable of 25A each with a combined maximum output of 150W. The 5VSB is also rated high at 4A/20W. The maximum combined output of the OCZ 1000W Fatal1ty Series is 1000 watts:

The unit comes with the 20+4 pin Main, one ATX 4+4 and two 8-pin PCI-E connectors wired to the unit (not modular). Ten modular cables offer the other 4x PCI-E connectors, 12x SATA connectors and 8x 4-pin peripheral (Molex) connectors. Two Molex to FDD adapters are also included:

Connectors Length #
ATX 20+4-pin 58.5cm x1
4+4-pin ESP/12V CPU 64cm x2
6+2-pin PCIe 61cm x4
5-pin SATA 41/56/71/86cm x12
4-pin Peripheral 41/56/71/86cm x8
Floppy 12.7cm x2

Below you see a picture of the internal of the PSU. OCZ has used some passive coolers (black) to keep temperatures in check. A pair of Japanese made Nippon Chemi-con capacitors are identified on the right bottom side of the picture, while some smaller capacitors are also found on the left side. The two primary electrolytic capacitors are rated for 105°C / 400v / 390µF and not for 85°C, as we typically see in other PSUs.

Also notice the the wired cables are sleeved all the way back to the PCB and don't just stop as soon as they enter the power supply.

Generally, as you can see there is nothing messy here and the overall build quality is high, as we expected from a 1000W PSU of this price range.

OCZ is using a Ong Hua HA1425H12B-Z 140mm fan to provide the active cooling for the power supply.
The fan runs up to 2800 RPM (12V, 0.5A):
