OCZ ZT Series OCZ-ZT550W

a huge huge improvement over the previous extreme units ,ocz really stepped since they dropped the ram market

the essential bread and butter psu on the market solid performer from a solid brand

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX550M

new from corsair another good option

Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550

best value modular psu a good solid psu,the really improved their quality with these

i've seen it happen with a 750W OCZ, be careful not to suggest corsair too much though even though they're reliable. it could bring you alot of grief on this forum.

@ OP: if you can spend up to that much you will be better off getting the Antec HCP 750, make more sense than a lower powered unit that costs more money, even if it's the best of it's kind.

I dont have the receipt lol. even if i did i dont think i will go OCZ again.
there are far better superior products out like u say it WAS a decent unit

Failures happen with every single PSU brand out there.. and OCZ, like pretty much every single other major PSU brand, sells trash as well as excellent units..
You should still try them, you might get away without a receipt

So you're sure everything you changed is working properly?.. tested everything individually?
