OCZ GameXStream 700w ATX PSU

Having never reviewed an OCZ power supply before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect in the cabling and connectors department. Generally most manufacturers PSU's follow the same trend throughout their entire range. Lets see what the GameXStream has to offer:

All connectors are finished in black, with the molex connectors adopting the 'easy grip' design, which should make removal of the connectors from devices easier.

It's also good to see that OCZ have decided to sleeve all cables right to the very last connector. Many manufacturers only sleeve some of the cables, or sleeve up to the first connector on every cable. The sleeving job is professional with cable ties holding the sleeving in place, and heat shrink keeping everything neat and tidy.

The ATX connector on the GameXStream 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.

SATA Molex Floppy

With 6 SATA connectors, 6 Molex connectors and 2 Floppy connectors the GameXStream 700w should have enough plugs to suit almost every configuration of PC.

Great review as always Jim. Agreed, on the very ordinary appearance especially from the likes of OCZ. Again the solid build and very stable voltages are sure to please most people and cause them to forget about the bland look. Well done anyway mate Quote
