OCZ EvoStream 600w Modular PSU

OCZ's previous modular PSU - the ModStream was always admired by 'Modders' for it's UV reactive modular cabling system. Let's see if the EvoStream has taken these desirable qualities on-board...

The EvoStream has a total of 10 connectors on the front of the unit. Six of these make use of the ATX/PCI-E style connector, with the other 4 using the aging molex style connector.

What I found slightly disturbing was that OCZ had used the same 6-Pin style PCI-E connector for connecting SATA cables. Users not paying attention to the EvoStream's manual or not noticing the subtle difference in the connectors colours could easily cause damage to their SATA/PCI-E devices by plugging the cables into the incorrect connectors.

The EvoStream is provided with a total of 10 cables - just enough to populate every connector on the EvoStream unit. All cables are RFI/EMI shielded and finished in a UV blue reactive coating.

The ATX connector on the EvoStream is native 24-pin. However, as you can see above, a small block of 4 connectors can be broken off to switch the connector to 20-pin, and thus make it compatible with older motherboards. This is also true for the 8-Pin EPS12v connector which can be split in half, providing the user with a 4-Pin P4-12v connector.

"What do you get when you cross a OCZ PowerStream with an ModStream? An EvoStream of course! Today I'll be testing out OCZ's latest addition to their PSU range that is set to take the place of the ageing ModStream unit."
