As mentioned earlier, the 700w Fatal1ty PSU is non-modular, so what you see is what you get. OCZ has further fashioned the unit with red cable mesh, complete with red heatshrink and tiny black zip ties to hold the mesh firmly in place. The cables also have a lot of length and should reach to every corner of even large tower cases.

OCZ decided to go with a 20+4-pin ATX power connector which makes it backwards compatible with older 20-pin motherboards. This split pin system is also used for the CPU connector, which has a 4+4-pin configuration.

Two 6+2-pin PCI-E cables are also provided for your video card power needs. Each cable is clearly labeled with a black PCI Express sticker which I assume most users will remove.

Two strands of 4-pin Molex connectors are provided, each with four connectors and one has a floppy connector. Two additional strands of SATA connectors are included, each with four connectors.

OCZ has elected to only sleeve the Molex and SATA cables up to the first connector. While some users may wish for a fully sleeved PSU, OCZ likely left these segments mesh-free to allow them to be more flexible. Powering a series of hard drives with a single SATA strand that is fully sleeved can be a chore as there is not much give between the connectors.

Continue ahead as we cover installation and check out some voltage test results.
