The infrastructure that supplies electricity to the United States can be very fragile and, when it is not working, everything slows to a crawl. Recently, in New England, a major power line was damaged and power is no longer being provided for train service. This is causing major problems for the people that rely on the commuter rail to get them to and from work. The big question comes down to who is responsible for the outage. You can bet the electrical company is at fault, seeing how they failed to fix a backup line for over six months.
The electrical outage has a domino effect on the economy, considering that people are not able to get into work. Those that have alternate transportation are saddled with sitting in hours of traffic on roads that are now bottlenecked even more. In the same sense, a computer's power grid is one of the most important things. Without good clean power, the system will slow to a crawl and often times crash. This instability will not only be frustrating but could damage other expensive components.
The new OCZ Fatal1ty 750W power supply is an 80 Plus Bronze rated PSU that has been updated to be compatible with 4th generation (Haswell) Intel processors. The OCZ Fatal1ty includes a fully modular design that uses flat cables to make routing simple. This PSU is designed specifically for the needs of a gaming system and will provide up to 750 Watts continuous power at 45°C and utilizes a single +12V rail design. Connectors include a 24-pin ATX motherboard connector, two 4+4 pin ATX/EPS, four 6+2 pin PCI-E, six 4-pin Molex peripheral cables, and eight 15-pin SATA power cables. A floppy disk adapter is also included for compatibility with legacy components. Cooling is handled by a thermally controlled 135mm Dual Ball Bearing fan to keep the Fatal1ty 750W PSU’s noise level under control while keeping temperatures down. With a MTBF of 100,000 hours, OCZ backs the power supply with their 5-year warranty.
