About PC Power and Cooling

On April 19, 1985, PC Power & Cooling began operations in a small warehouse just outside of San Diego, CA. Founded by Doug Dodson, a commodity trader and electronic hobbyist, the company’s first products were custom fans to cool and quiet computers.

If you aren’t already aware, PC Power and Cooling is now part of the OCZ Technology Group.
