The retail box for the ZT looks a lot like the box we used for BFG power supplies while I was working there. Of course, we stole that idea from Western Digital’s retail box for hard drives. Fair’s fair.
The back of the box looks like it has some good information on it. Let’s zoom in and give it a read…
As I stated before, this power supply is fully modular. That translates into “fully customizable” as you can completely eliminate any unused cables. The ZT power supply is kept “extreme cool” by a thermostatically controlled 140mm fan. The ZT power supply also features OCZ’s 5 year “PowerSwap” warranty, which is OCZ’s advanced replacement RMA policy.
But wait! There’s more!
Here’s all the important technical information we computer geeks like to look at.
The important things to note here is that this PSU is rated continuously and at 45°C (as opposed to rated at peak and/or at room temperature) and that 105°C capacitors are used, which should provide a longer life.
At the bottom of this panel of the box, we see the DC output table. Below is our reproduction of the DC output table:

Enough of looking at the box… let’s open it up and see what’s inside…
