2. Opening the package
Below you see the familiar Fatal1ty red and black packaging of the new PSU. The 80PLUS Bronze certification is prominently displayed on the rather large box , while the rear of the box provides further information and detail about the unit:
The sides of the box also give the cable and connector configuration list:
Inside the box is a good accessory package, with the modular cables stored in a separate bag, along with a manual, AC power cord, and silver mounting screws:
The black bag you see above includes the modular cables. All the cables are well-sleeved to the connectors, as well as some color-coding connectors.
Let's have a closer look to the main unit. The OCZ Fatal1ty 750 W PSU is painted black color with red-colored accents. It's metallic case is mat and all of its corners are rounded for easier and handling. The finish on the unit is lightly textured and resistant to fingerprints and scratches:
On the top side there is a 13.5cm thermally controlled Globe Fan. This is a DC12v model with 0.45A rating and is branded RL4R B1352512HH. This fan has a max RPM of approximately 1600RPM. A LED lighting provides a signature red color for the fan, in keeping with the theme of the Fatal1ty series products. However, if your case has a downward-facing intake orientation at the bottom, then the lighting effects will be unseen:
The PSU has 10 modular sockets. They are four 6-pin connectors for peripheral cables and four 8-pin for CPU / PCI-E cables. Two separate connectors are provided for plugging in the main power cable for the motherboard:
The rear of the unit features an open design to the honeycombed perforations to allow for increased airflow from the fan to exhaust the hot air out the rear of your case. There’s also a honeycombed venting and on/off switch.
