    For what it is worth. I have one of their ZX range PSUs here. Supposed to be GOLD rated, 1250w, the lot. The one which was discontinued after a few months...

    Guess what?

    ...

    It popped.

      OK, so tonight we've had the heating on in the house, and I've been playing games (I know, twice in one week).

      PSU fan is driving me nuts

        OCZ don't appear to be having much success, do they?

        When are you going to replace that PSU, DT?

          I'd send it back and get this PSU instead mate:

            going to try mounting it in the top of the case first, as the actual power it supplies is spot on, they've just put in a poor (noisy) fan. I must be so close to the temp limits ....

                      Hmm, tbh mate I'd just return it/rma, sell the replacement and buy something better. Glad I can't hear mine, super silent even under load

                        I recently got the 750W OCZ ZT and omg it's loud! My last pc was really quiet even under load and I am starting to miss the quietness. With my new case, the CM Storm Trooper, I can only fit the PSU to the bottom of the case but I don't think it would make much difference at the top anyway. Once it spins up it's loud! I will try and save for the Corsair AX 750.

                          I replaced my ZT 750 with a Corsair due to the noise. The fan was really loud when gaming. I emailed OCZ and they said as the fan is load controlled and not temperature controlled it will be louder under use and it was normal. My Corsair is silent even under heavy load.

                              Not a fan of OCZ PSUs myself, though I do like their RMA guys.
                              Bought a sold-as-seen, brand new looking Stealth X-Stream 800 for 5 at a Croydon computer fair, which turned out to be dud. Contacted OCZ RMA guys and, because it was manufactured within their warranty period, they authorised RMA. I hadn't heard from them after about three weeks after courier tracking said it had been delivered, so I contacted them again. They looked into it and a few days later a new replacement turned up. Then another replacement turned up the next day. Lovely guys! LOL

                              Trouble was, they didn't last. Less than a year later one was dead and the other's LED is amber, not green, but appears to function OK - that one's in the cupboard as a last-resort spare. I didn't want to bother chancing my arm with their RMA again so took the hit.

                              In the meantime, my daughter's PSU had failed, over the weekend so I went to PC World for emergency replacement, a Stealth X-Stream for about 50. This also soon failed so I had them replace it with an Antec 400 (all reviews agree they're grrrreat!) off their shelf.

                              My Thermaltake Toughpower failed on my main PC on another goddarned Sunday so it's another Antec for me. Love Antec stuff.

                                I've just had one of these, no problems with it so.

                                It replaced my trusty Jeantech Absolute 1000w PSU that I run for 5 years without even breaking a sweat and was a bargain at 110 that I payed for it back in the day.
