OCZ announce EliteXStream power supply family
OCZ Technology have Introduced their EliteXStream line of  PSU's featuring a powerful single-rail design for optimum distribution to high-performance systems.

OCZ yesterday unveiled the EliteXStream power supply family for high-powered gaming systems and workstations. Designed to offer the consumer market an enthusiast-grade computer power supply with a state-of-the-art architecture, the EliteXStream is aimed at users that require an ultra-efficient, highly reliable, high-wattage solution for their leading-edge gaming machine.

EliteXStreame PSU's
Co-developed with the experts at PC Power & Cooling, the EliteXStream is a flagship model among OCZ’s lineup of gamer-oriented power supplies.  Expanding on a lineup of powerful and stable PSUs, OCZ designed the 800W and 1000W EliteXStream for optimum power distribution to all components by utilizing the superior "single +12V rail" design perfected by PC Power & Cooling.  This trail-blazing approach to +12V rail design ends the need to budget power "across the rails" as is the case with the less effective multi-rail design found in the vast majority of high-performance PSU's on the market today.
“I am excited to bring a high-performance PSU to market that so effectively fuses the in-depth gaming and enthusiast experience of OCZ with the legendary power supply expertise of the PC Power & Cooling division”, said Ryan Edwards, Product Manager for the OCZ Technology Group. “Featuring up to 86% efficiency, a staggering single +12V rail output, a complete array of connectors, and an attractive MSRP, the new EliteXstream Series of PSUs sets a new standard for both the OCZ brand and the high-performance industry in general."

The EliteXStream will be available in 800W and 1000W configurations, delivering up to 1KW of continuous power through a complete array of connectors including four 8-pin (6+2) PCI-E and 17 drive connectors. These PSUs are kept supremely cool with a large 120mm fan and feature a standard ATX power supply form factor.

What's not mentioned in the press release is that the PSU's feature over-current, over-voltage and short-circuit protection and are covered with a 5 year Premium PowerSwap warranty.  As for price and availability, as reported in our full review of the 1000W model, OCZ have told us that the unit will be retailing in the USA for around $230 and have given us a preliminary figure of £115 for the UK market.  This figure isn't set in stone but is an indication.  We should find out soon enough when they start appearing with retailers within a week or so
If they do indeed come in at that price point, and you're looking for a high powered PSU, will one of these be on your wish list?

how od i reset cmos

07-04-2008, 06:13:21

I dont know if the board has a CMOS reset button or jumper, if it does it'll be somewhere near the battery, if it dosent, then i think you just take the battery out, though ide wait for someone to comfirm that.

The P5WDH does indeed have a CMOS clear jumper.

I suggest going back to 2gig and get the setup stable then increase your memory voltage to 2v and also up the NB voltage a tad which helps with getting 4gig of ram stable.

ok i reseted the cmos, now ive tried putting the xtra ram back in but the comp dosnt boot up, before i start tinkering again, what are the main things i need to do to get this working right with 4gb

Put one stick in the furthest away slot from the motherboard. Boot into BIOS and set voltage to 2.1 and timings to what they should be stock. Make sure the RAM speed is 400MHz (800MHz effective)

Reboot, check it still POSTs. Power down and put in another module in the other dual channel slot Again check that you can POST after that. Do the same for the last two modules. Be patient and you may find the cause or fix the problem
