    Default PC Power and Cooling, what's up?

    It's come to my attention that PC Power PSUs are nearly OOS everywhere. There's a few models available here and there like the 370W and 470 Silencers and the 1200W Turbo-cool, but all the popular models are pretty much gone. Is OCZ killing them off? I had heard Win-Tact hasn't made any Turbo-cools for them in a while, but it's odd for the Seasonic stuff to be MIA as well especially since the 910W isn't that old. Anybody hear any juicy rumors?

    Maybe OCZ isn't interested in a rebadged Seasonic which is made expensive but sold cheap.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    PCP&C is the most non-comprimising PSU company? Last time I checked, they were busy comprimising silence and modularity because of silly marketing points.

    speaking of OCZ,

    Anyone know anything about the 550 Z?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341037

    Good price point for a 550 Silver rated, if its not total crap?
