PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The satin black finish on this PSU matches the black grille for the 120mm fan. As you can see, the fan is translucent and features blue LEDs for some visual interest. The rear panel has ample open area for ventilation and an input current selector switch is conspicuously absent due to the advanced internal circuitry.
Label information differs slightly from specifications given on OCZ's website. This label lists all +12V rails at 20A each. A small chart also lists which +12V rail powers which devices. The UL online certifications directory lists OCZ as the manufacturer, though I assume OCZ, like most other companies, has the PSU manufactured elsewhere to their spec.
The cables are fully sleeved with a black mesh material, secured with tie-wraps and heatshrink tubing. A large plastic grommet protects the cables, minimizing the chances of a nasty short.
Qty. Description Connectors
2 PCIE 1 ea. PCIE
2 SATA 3 ea. SATA
2 4-pin/floppy 3 ea. 4-pin, 1 ea. floppy
1 EPS 1ea. Aux. power (4pin or 8pin)
The cable lengths are generous and the connectors are plentiful. With the exception of the 4-pin and floppy connectors, all other connectors are clearly labeled, allowing the user to easily determine which rail is being used for any combination of devices. I like this feature a lot. Right angle connectors are included on the SATA cables and the four-pin connectors feature “squeeze clips” for easy removal.
