I have nothing against brands using celebrity names to endorse their products. I honestly wished the gaming world and PC tech did the same with some of our own to bring more attention to both. The only problem is, they all want to use just one person. OCZ brings a little more black and red to the business with the Fatal1ty 1000W PSU.

The OCZ Fatal1ty 1000W PSU is a well rounded power supply that seems to be targeted at all gamers. It is a 1000 watt, 80+ Gold unit built with 105ºC capacitors (to stand temperatures up to 50ºC), with modular cabling and it is cooled by a 140 mm near silent fan. It uses a single +12V rail which is neither here nor there for me personally and backed by a OCZ's 5 year warranty. Seriously, is there a feature they missed here?

Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel himself. I just want to see other professional gamers and personalities get a little brand love to help boaster the business into something more widely recognizable. Setting aside that discussion, the OCZ Fatal1ty PSU is a great product. Especially if you are building a black and red themed system.
