OCZ Technology won the love of enthusiasts with its memory modules and its attention to customer service. It has been branching out into other areas, such as power supplies. Its Powerstream was aimed squarely at the overclocking crowd. Its new series of power supplies, the Modstream, delivers a higher level of customizability -- but how does it perform? Mike Mackenzie checks it out.
OCZ is a well respected name in the world of memory; their memory modules tend to perform better than most other manufacturers. Mostly directed at overclocking, their modules are built with the highest quality components. They also provide excellent technical support for all of their components, from their value series all the way to their newest VX series. Basically, if you ever have a problem with your OCZ product, they will take care of you.
OCZ has expanded their line of products and has started producing power supplies. The first series of power supplies, named the Powerstream, was marketed toward power users, mostly overclockers who needed a strong, reliable box to supply the power to keep overclocked components running properly. The OCZ Powerstream has remained the overclocker's choice for power supply for over a year now.
The OCZ Modstream comes packed in a large box and contains a small box with all of the removable power cables.
Recently OCZ has developed a new series of power supplies. The Modstream power supply is so named for being a modular power supply. Users can customize the cables exiting the power supply to minimize cabling throughout their system, for a nice, clean look inside their cases.
Today we have an OCZ Modstream 520W power supply, which offers the modular components, but can it perform as well as its older brother the Powerstream? We will see if it is possible.
The Modstream comes with UV reactive cables, an assortment of magic straps, mounting hardware and an installation guide.
The Output on the +3.3v, +5v, +12v rails are 28A, 45A, 28A which are similar to most high end power supplies.
