    This is the worst news I have heard all week.... PC Power & Cooling is one of the best PSU manufacturers available.... OCZ is not. Great, now we will get PPC PSU's with led's on them and plexiglass cases! :dead:

    Ugh.

    I guess OCZ could cut it being a psu reseller so they decided to buy the competition.

    This is actually pretty good. OCZ memory is some of the best on the market. Add to that the best PSU's on the market and what do you get?

    yeah. thats what i thought... they're not gonna screw pc p&c psu's, they probably bought them to offer more quality products w/o all the trouble of making them themselves

    I hope this doesn't spell the end of PC Power & Cooling. I'm really glad I got my new PC Power & Cooling PSU before all this. :)

    Yeah, its kind of ironic I was just looking at buying one a few days ago. I probably should before they sell out of the old stock. I'm really not happy about this buyout.

    Guys, relax. OCZ didn't buy them to ruin them. They wanted a top name to build on their overclocking performance image.

    Keep an eye out they may be thinking about branding an OCZ Gaming PC product line. Something like what Aleinware was before they picked up the stigma of being part of DELL. (Hiding and waiting patiently for the retribution from SAZAR.)

    We could be overreacting a bit, but I never like to see a successful and quality independent company get bought up by the larger, less quality fish.

    OCZ is very high quality. Their self build PSU's were garnering a very good repover here in europe, with their purchase of PCP&C things can only get better.

    OCZ didn't make their own power supplies. They rebadged them from a third party but at the moment (5 beers) the OEM is escaping me. I do know that it's the same OEM Mushkin used.

    Probably FSP :) The largest OEM PSU manufacturer. Also makers of the worlds most efficient PSU at room temperature.
