IF I had to choose, I'd go with OCZ just because they've never let me down, and if it matters, it delivers an extra amp on the +5VSB. Other than that these PSUs are very similar.

That being said, these prices look a bit high.. why not Newegg? I was able to grab a 600W modular OCZ for $25 after MIR a couple weeks ago.

Secondly, many users around here will bash OCZ and XFX, which is semi-justified. Overall they aren't as reliable as Corsair or Seasonic PSUs.

Not so sure about the OCZ one, but all XFX PSU's are quality, sharing the same internals as the Seasonic PSU's.

I would go with the XFX thumb.gif

Both are good. I think the XFX is a bit better though, Seasonic M12D based I think

The OCZ ZT Series units do not perform as well as the XFX XXX Pro series units, but they're both solid options.

 

The OCZ ZT Series units have a better fan inside of them, as the XFX units fan is prone to clicking. All you need to do to fix that most of the time, is to push the fan hub down with a pencil.

 

The OCZ ZT Series units are also fully modular. Which may be a benefit to some.

 

 

Though, the XFX units do perform a good margin better, and they are more efficient.

on the 750w lovin it'

and another zt review on 650w model
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-ZT-Series-650-W-Power-Supply-Review/1418

pretty good.

when people talk about ocz in general, they are talking about ocz in general, not the specific lines, which is what you want to be researching.

I just got the OCZ ZT 750W. I got it for $75 so I'm pretty happy. We will see how it handles my two 6950s.
