As for as that goes I never had any problems with the OCZ power supply that I have ,it in the closet somewhere but it still works I hook up a cheap system and though that in and had no problems and my OCZ DDR3 1600 ram is still going strong. Your right warranty don't mean nothing excpecially if they go out of buisness and there no where to send it ,but that can also happen to one that you pay over $300 for.It always a gamble most of the time you don't have to worry about it,unless you buy a no name 1000 watts that is 50% effcient and puts out 30 amps on the 12v rail .The PC&POWER cooler 950 Mark II has to be better then something like that.It gets good reviews one place even pushed it to 1120 watts and it ran fine ,most cheap power supplies want do more then they are rated.

Well I want be bragging how good PC Power& Cooling MK II 950 watts amy more .Was playing a game and it was like a shot gun went off in my room and the flash was so bright it lit up my room. People was so right you get what you pay for.I was scard it took out my motherboard and CPU and everthing else.But I got lucky I put my Coolermaster 1100w UCP back in and to my surpise everthing seems to be fine.PC Power& Cooling is not what it use to be by a long shot.I may have just got a bad one out of the bunch, and the rest my be fine,but it is the first time I ever had a power supply blow up.I will never buy PC Power & Cooling again.I will do a better job in reviewing them.I knew it had a bad ripple on the 12v line but they said it was in spec. That what I get in paying $139 for a 1000w powersupply.I think I paid $280 for this one but that was four years ago and it still going strong.

Well, Any PSU can fail, and the MKIII's are now made by superflower which are much much better designs than the MKII's were (and I spoke against them for a while).

That being said, I'm actually shocked that your older CM hasn't killed something, as that Platform was Worse than the MKII's...

my CoolerMaster 1100 UCP has lasted over four years and my PC Power & Cooling 950watt MKII did'nt even last 6 months.I have never had a powersupply blow up on me in the 12 years I have been building computers.
