FirePower Fatal1ty 750W Power Supply Review - The Fatal1ty Series PSUs by Firepower Technology may seem to be something new in the world of computer power supplies, but really it is not. That said, Firepower is somewhat new in the PSU world, so let's see where they are headed right now.

I'm genuinely amazed this guy still gets his name/face on products.
I had to look him up again since it has been forever since I heard anything about him. I guess he doesn't game professionally anymore and only sell things now.

Same. I mean lost relevance in the eSports world like a decade ago. Although he at least did good to create his own company and push on.

The surprise is that he's actually lasted this long. I think it's time he stopped trying to put his brand on everything and aim at trying to work with companies to make gear that consumers want.

Admittedly at this point he seems to be doing quite well for himself, given what's on his Twitter: LInk

Not drowning in cash, but living a pretty decent life financially, it seems. Continuing to sign deals based on his brand. Can't blame him for essentially coasting on that, but yes, I wish he was in a position to have his branding on mid-to-high gear ("enthusiast" if not top-tier) -- that would really get him back on the map in terms of gaming peripherals.

I was never a big fan of his branding cause, well, it was always red. I prefer blue. Anyways, I would love to see some type of eSports player (new, current, or retired) make it somewhat big. There never has been any kind of professional gamer that is widely known by well, non-gamers. At least in the US. S.Korea has RTS gamers.

I'd much rather see him go around to tournaments and hook up with current players. See their likes, dislikes and work with companies to produce hardware based off that info. I wouldn't be labeling anything with his name, cause he's pretty much diluted that branding. It was on some top end gear when he was still in eSports, but then he just started letting them slap his name on everything.

I don't see his name ever becoming anything of value, but he could use his connections and gather user feedback to create better hardware. He's obviously still relevant in gaming. His name is still on products and he hosts gaming tournaments.

I admit some of his branded mother boards were pretty awesome back in the day. A little shocked to see his branding still going on.

Grats to the dude.
