2 out of 5 eggsNOISY!!!!

This review is from: OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Haswell Core i3/i5/i7 and AMD Phenom

Pros: Does what any good power supply does and has been solid for the most part. But....

Cons: Very annoying coil while at high load and may be the reason some games crash a few minutes in. After working closely with EVGA premium tech support to determine if the problem is the 3 evga titans the Evga SR2 motherboard or the power supply, we narrowed it down to the whiny little ocz zx 1250watt power supply. I tried contacting OCZ for support and RMA but they NEVER answer phones or reply to emails or support tickets. Not happy with OCZ right now...

Other Thoughts: A+ certified IT Technician working in the biz for many years now.... I think I have earned the right to call OCZ out....

Manufacturer Response:

Dear BTG,

I am very sorry you have noticed coil whine between the ZX1250 and your 3 GTX Titans. Both the ZX1250 and the Titan(s) are great products - if the issue is originating from the ZX1250 OCZ will definitely assist and replace it if necessary.

It is possible you have contacted us or created a support ticket over the holiday observance period where just like EVGA, OCZ operates limited support hours. I am happy to assist you with this and will gladly expedite your support ticket (RMA) request. Please contact me using the email address provided below and provide the following information:

Name
Phone Number
Ticket Number

After providing the requested information I will do whatever possible to bring this to a swift resolution. Thank you for your purchase and for sharing your feedback.

Kind Regards,

This review is from: OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Haswell Core i3/i5/i7 and AMD Phenom

Pros: It was a nice fully modular power supply.

Cons: 3 out of 4 of these have failed either completely or don't produce enough voltage to fire up the machines.

Other Thoughts: Based on our experience with these and OCZ's SSD's I would not recommend any OCZ product at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent high-capacity supply

This review is from: OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Haswell Core i3/i5/i7 and AMD Phenom

Pros: High power rating.
Mod cables are sleeved - black.
OCZ Support very good.

Cons: The socket for the power cable came loose from tension on the cable. I contacted OCZ support and they easily sent me a new unit as a replacement. As a loyal OCZ customer over many years, I will continue using their products because I know that their support staff care about the customers and keep me coming back for mooooar.

Other Thoughts: No lights or LEDs (personal preference).

1 out of 5 eggsskip it

This review is from: OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Haswell Core i3/i5/i7 and AMD Phenom

Pros: A lot of power when it works

Cons: Owned it for less than a year . Computer completely shuts off randomly. Tested and narrowed it down to the Power supply.

Other Thoughts: Ocz will not honor their 5 year warranty without a receipt. The product has not even been on the market for 5 years. I'll stick to companies that honor their warranty from now on.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous Consumer,

There seems to be a misunderstanding here. OCZ will honor all valid warranty claims. An original sales receipt or valid copy of the receipt is required to establish purchase date and original purchaser. You can easily obtain this by logging into your Newegg account and printing a copy. You can also take a screenshot or scan it then send it to us for verification. If I can help with this please contact me at the email address below and I will assist.

Kind Regards,

This review is from: OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Haswell Core i3/i5/i7 and AMD Phenom

Pros: Fully modular, All sleeved cables, Great packaging, looks real pretty in my case.

Cons: Noisy, some cables don't make full pin contact (that's a fun one to chase down ) . if you are using a large mid or full case , better plan on extensions ... I.E. short cables. It lasted less than 12 months

Other Thoughts: I have a very expensive , good looking paperweight , RMA would mean a month down time minimum. I'll just buy another brand and save the headaches . **AVOID **

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ FOR THE FAIL!

This review is from: OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Haswell Core i3/i5/i7 and AMD Phenom

Pros: It looked nice, till I hooked it up and it took out my motherboard the memory and the CPU too!

I WROTE THIS TO TRY AND SAVE OTHER PEOPLE FROM BUYING THIS JUNK! I SEE NEW EGG BLOCKS THE HONEST FEEDBACK AS THE FIRST FEW PAGES ARE NOTHING BUT HOW AWESOME THIS UNIT IS. BUYERS BE WARNED!

Cons: CHEAP HARNESS< NEVER TESTED< IF IT WAS THEY WOULD KNOW IT DOES NOT WORK AND WOULD FIX IT. BUT THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE BOTTOM LINE WHICH IS MONEY..............

BE WARNED THESE UNITS ARE JUNK!!!!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: THE 24 pin harness is so cheap, it will not un fold from the factory folding job. CHEAPEST MOLEX PSU I HAVE EVER SEEN!!
OCZ WILL NOT WARRANTY NOR REPLACE THE COMPONENTS THIS UNIT BLEW OUT!!
BE WARNED..........

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

The ZX Series 1250W PSU is a high-quality unit designed to provide stability, reliability, low noise, optimized air flow, and efficiency. The stiffness you noticed with the cables is not a sign of cheapness, it is characteristic of the high quality 16ga wire used. Also, Newegg does not block negative feedback - the feedback screen can be sorted by date posted, most helpful, highest rated, lowest rated, and length of ownership. It just happens that this item has overwhelmingly positive reviews from Verified Owners. Newegg adds a "Verified Owner" notation on reviews from users who bought the subject item from Newegg. Your review lacks this notation meaning the review did not pertain to an item purchased via Newegg.

OCZ is glad to assist with problems you have with this PSU. It is important to us that you are satisfied and see value in your purchase. Please contact our Tech Support or Support Forum directly so we can discuss your situation and help however possible. If you have a previous ticket number please include that in your communication.

Sincerely,
OCZ Support
