OCZ GameXStream 700w ATX PSU

Conclusion

Conclusion

The OCZ GameXStream has to be one of the first PSU's tested here at Overclock3D that manages to successfully combine stability, efficiency and low noise levels in a package no larger than a standard ATX power supply.

Couple these excellent features with a 36 month warranty along with an unmatched level of e-mail support and OCZ have a winner on their hands.

The only negative point that I could manage to come up with for the GameXStream was its rather bland appearance. It would have been nice to see the unit sporting the same gunmetal electroplated finish as other OCZ power supplies, or at least sprayed in a more imaginative colour.

Currently retailing for £97 over at Komplett, the GameXStream is actually cheaper than a great deal of other lower wattage units and should certainly be near the top of your shopping list when looking for your next power supply.

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
