Pretty much. The 750W and under Zalmans are FSP Epsilons with Zalman's heatpipe design for the heatsinks. Zalman has also tweaked the Epsilon design to eliminate the ripple issue (I can't find exactly what they changed). Because of this, the Zalmans are better than it's siblings (OCZ and many others). Oh and most companies that sell PSUs, contract out other companies to make their units. They go to FSP, Enhance, CWT, Seasonic, etc... (there are many manufacturers, but only a few with their own retail business) and usually pick from an existing product they make and then customize it (different fan, paint, cabling, tweaking internals, etc...) and then slap their label on it.
