OCZ StealthXStream 600 Watt PSU

Conclusion

Conclusion

The StealthXStream really has fulfilled most of my expectations and indeed, in some cases exceeded them by a comfortable margin. The unit is sold as a simple and 'unpretentious' power supply, capable of running demanding gaming computers with high reliability, efficiency and silence. Which is completely true. It's certainly not eye-catching or groundbreaking but for the performance conscious enthusiast, this shouldn't even be an issue.

As you have seen through the review, the StealthXStream is efficient, handles load well, and is very quiet. Its size and available connectivity options makes it suitable for a massive range of cases and enclosures while delivering the same high performance.

Furthermore, the StealthXStream, being an OCZ product, comes with the usual 3 year full warranty. Something all users certainly will appreciate.

Retailing currently at £49 at Komplett, the StealthXStream is very well priced. Offering the capabilities of usually far higher priced units, the value for money is clear to see.

Recommended Retailers


The Good
• Extremely quiet up to high loads
• Well priced for level of performance
• Extremely compact
• Very respectable 83% efficiency
• Good voltage regulation and compensation on 12v and 3v rails
• 3 Year warranty


The Mediocre
• Looks may not meet some peoples standards

The Bad
• Drop in 5v rail output at full load.


As the StealthXStream really doesnt have much letting it down I am giving the unit Overclock3Ds "Recommended" award. Along with this, the power supply's performance levels at its current retail price earn it Overclock3Ds "Value For Money" award.
