OCZ GameXStream 700w ATX PSU

Looking Inside

Looking Inside

As with all power supplies that pass through Overclock3D, I'll be taking a look inside the GameXStream. By doing this I should be able to get a good idea of the overall build quality of the unit and how it is likely to perform in our tests.

Normally I'd be quite shocked by the seemingly inadequate internals of the GameXStream unit, however these internals strike an amazing resemblance to a power supply manufactured by FSP that I reviewed a short while ago.

After giving the unit a thorough inspection, I was able to find the FSP logo on the PCB (circuit board), which leads me to believe that I'm going to find the GameXStream to be a very capable power supply indeed.

OCZ GameXStream 700w Pot

Also during the inspection of the GameXStream, I came across what appeared to be an adjustable potentiometer (pot for short). Pot's can be used to adjust the voltage output by the rails on the power supply, and can come in handy when voltages droop outside of ATX specifications.

OCZ GameXStream 700w Fan

Cooling the GameXStream is a 12cm fan manufactured by Protechnic Electrics. The maximum speed of this fan is 2500rpm at 38.3dB when running at 12v. As mentioned earlier, the fan also includes a blue LED to brighten things up a bit!

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
