CWT make the Phantom 500, SmartPowers, original TruePowers and the Neopowers.
So none of their newer units are CWT.
All their new units are either SeaSonic (TruePower News), Delta (Signatures and CPs) or Enhance (TruePower Quatros).

OCZ's power supplies aren't very good, save the Z series, and even then, its only real attribute is efficiency; everything else is average.
The FSP Epsilon platform, which is what most of OCZs popular power supplies is based on, isn't very good. At about 550W at 45C, you're going to get voltage ripple barely within ATX Spec. If you try and load it to anywhere near 700W at the same operating temperatures, you'll get Voltage Ripple way out of ATX spec. JonnyGuru recorded 200mV of 12V rail ripple... the max safe is 120mV.
Oh, and nice thread, Phaedrus. Edited by meticadpa - 1/22/10 at 5:45pm
