Same.  They were damn quick, in fact.

A few data points pertinent to those PSUs:

OCZ ModXStream 700W:
- Very unimpressive - by today's standards - 550W at 12V rails due to the unit being a...
- ...dated design. (it's a 2008 PSU, folks)
- Cheap^WHigh-value components made the unit struggle at higher loads. (HardOCP)
- Very few PCIe connectors (one 6 pin, one 8 pin) necessitate the use of adapters.

OCZ Fatal1ty 750W:
- Quad rail design means you need to pay close attention to how you wire things.
  Moreover, the rail distribution is wacky:
    12V1 (solid yellow wires): Main motherboard cable.
    12V2 (yellow/red wires): Half of the ATX12V/EPS12V connector (ummm... wtf?).
    12V3 (yellow/green wires): Half of the ATX12V/EPS12V connector, half of the modular connectors (two for video cards and two for SATA/peripheral).
    12V4 (yellow/black wires): EPS12V connector, half of the modular connectors (two for video cards and two for SATA/peripheral). (HardwareSecrets)
- Two hardwired CPU connectors might necessitate the use of an ATX12V->PCIe adapter.
- The unit burnt down under an overload condition instead of safely shutting down. (HardwareSecrets)


As long as the limitations of both units are understood, the rebated price tags make this opportunity a no-brainer.

i've used some godawful amt of power supplies.... most recently I guess I've had two 850w thermaltake toughpowers that are still working after about 6yrs of moderate+ use

ocz (fatality) *1000w (fixed) operating in same ambient temp as 3 seasonics and 1 thermaltake died after a few months.   3 5830's on it , probably 60% of capacity

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).
