IIRC they're owned by FirePower Technology now, they bought OCZ and PC P&C so unless they've been squished by Firepower I'd imagine they're still good. OCZ was amazing with customer support and made good PSUs. I bought 2 firestorm 750s from them umm 2ish years ago that are powering stereos now (Yeah PC PSUs can power stereo stuff if you cut the cables properly, plus they can be cheaper). I haven't had a problem with them.

They got a lot less popular when the whole "GUYS WE HAVE SINGLE 12v RAILS" marketing kinda faded. From what I understand they're still reputable.

The only thing bad I've heard about them recently was a melting cable issue (which is kind of a big problem) from 2017-2018 but I don't know the extent of the problem or psus that were affected.
