PSU REVIEW DATABASE

FirePower Technology, Inc., is the former home of PC Power and Cooling and the power supply division of OCZ Technology Group.

PC Power & Cooling began operations in a small warehouse, just outside of San Diego, CA in 1985. Its first products were a series of fans designed to make computers run cooler and more quietly.

In 2007 PC Power and Cooling was acquired by OCZ technology Group. Offering PC Power & Cooling products alongside OCZ power supply products, enabled OCZ Technology Group to expand its reach to include many worldwide markets. PC Power & Cooling and the power supply division of OCZ Technology Group then became part of FirePower Technology in February 2014.
