What the Critics are Saying About the OCZ ZX Series
"This power supply is a system builder's dream."
"OCZ has put together a very solid power supply in the ZX Series.Talking about operation the ZX Series is extremely quiet and you can barely tell that it is on, your CPU fan will be louder than this power supply"
"The OCZ ZX 1250W is certainly an impressive power supply and one which excelled throughout all our testing over the last couple of days. If you need a substantial supply for multiple high power demand graphics cards then this should certainly be shortlisted"
"The OCZ ZX Series 850 W can really deliver its labeled wattage at high temperatures. This power supply presents its main voltages closer to their nominal values than necessary. Noise and ripple levels were always extremely low on the +5 V and +3.3 V outputs."
"Throughout all of our tests, the ZX 850 performed quite well and exactly as advertised. Voltage readings were excellent all the way through and the ripple we saw on the 12V rail was equally impressive. Perhaps what sweetens the deal even more is the price"
As we would expect for a PSU with Gold Certification the OCZ ZX Series 850W unit is a well-built product. From the flawless paintwork on the outside to the use of branded components on the inside, there is very little to fault about the PSU. A quality PSU which excels in efficiency and low noise operation.
