    OCZ GameXstream 700W PSU Review

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    OCZ knows memory, but do they know power supplies? Several years ago the company made a successful entry into that field. Today we're reviewing the OCZ GameXstream PSU to see if they're continuing their tradition of appealing to enthusiasts.

    Anyone that hasn't heard of OCZ has been living underneath a rock for a few years now. Founded in August 2002, OCZ quickly became one of the most well known names in memory modules, providing memory modules with outstanding performance for enthusiasts and overclockers. Their product line provides an OCZ solution for any of its customers' needs, with laptop memory, server memory, and desktop memory in several categories such as Value, Performance, Titanium and Gold series.

    In the second quarter of 2004 OCZ made a leap into the power supply market with their Powerstream Series Power Supply unit, which was an absolute success. Offering external user adjustable voltage rails let enthusiasts take control of how many volts they were sending components in their systems. This allowed users to push their computers much further, with increased stability.

    Today were taking a look at one of the latest OCZ power supplies, the OCZ GameXstream Series. It's supposed to be the ultimate gamer's PSU, delivering unparalleled, high performance power, quietly, reliably and efficiently for some of the most demanding computing environments: gamers and enthusiast overclockers. GameXstream PSUs are available in 600 and 700W versions, and are dual GPU ready. Supporting both ATI's Crossfire and nVidia's SLI. OCZ provides the user with four 12v rails for maximum efficiency and stability of high end components. OCZ certainly is looking out for their enthusiasts with this new product, so let's check it out, and see how well it handles some abuse.
