OCZ StealthXStream 600 Watt PSU

Introduction

Introduction

In recent months, OCZ Technologies, a company known for producing some of the best memory products going, has been showing what they can do in the field of power supplies. During their time OCZ have produced some of the highest performers on the market, with their 850w GameXStream earning the first Gold award ever to be given by Overclock3D. Today we take a look at another offering from OCZ, the 600w StealthXStream. Marketed as a high performance; budget friendly; no thrills; near silent solution for gamers and enthusiasts... Stealth really is the name of the game.

OCZ StealthXStream

There isn't really a great deal to say about the power supply itself. It's your basic ATX power supply, its compact, it's black and it claims to neither sing nor dance. With wattage at a premium in today's gaming rigs, a lot of people are looking to step things up a bit. Hopefully this PSU with its 600 watt punch will fill the gap in the market nicely.

Specifications

The information below has been taken directly from the StealthXStream product page on OCZ's website and gives a fairly extensive overview of what we can expect to see from this PSU.

OCZ StealthXStream / 600W / Active PFC

Designed for the value-minded gamer seeking simple but powerful performance, the StealthXStream includes OCZ’s acclaimed reliability and feature-sets with a lower price point. Ideal for system builders and enthusiasts who prefer a low-key PSU, the StealthXStream focuses on performance and quality made affordable for even the tightest budgets. It also excludes flashy LEDs ensuring the power supply does not pose as a distraction in your case.

The StealthXStream is kept supremely cool with a large 120mm fan features a standard ATX power supply form factor resulting in a compact footprint to accommodate virtually all computer towers. With a sustained output of 600W and four +12V rails to provide uniform distribution of power, the StealthXStream is well-suited for and driving today's higher end systems. The rock solid StealthXStream is built to provide sufficient output to power dual GPU and CPU platforms, complete with two PCI-Express cables and a 4/8 CPU auxiliary connector which are wrapped in a flexible mesh promoting a tidy environment inside the case.

The OCZ StealthXStream provides Universal Input and Active PFC (Power Factor Correction) to effectively regulate input voltage across worldwide power grids and maintain an economical, yet stable supply of power.

All OCZ StealthXStream power supplies come backed with an industry-leading three year OCZ PowerSwap Warranty for the ultimate peace of mind.

Backing these features up are four +12 rails, capable of taking up to 18A load each, with a total load across all rails of 52 Amps. On the efficiency front, the StealthXStream is rated at a rather 'green' 83% on the 230v mains we see all over Europe. On paper, at least, the StealthXStream looks like it should shape up to be more of the usual from OCZ.
