OCZ GameXStream 700W Power Supply


OCZ Technology has released a new line of power supplies dubbed the "GameXStream" series. Currently available in only 600W and 700W configurations, these power supplies are meant for serious PC enthusiasts, gamers, and power users. Both models are SLI-Ready and feature some pretty impressive specifications. These power supplies both feature four 12V rails, the main difference is the 700W allows for a maximum combined 12V load of 680W, whereas the 600W model allows for 580W.

OCZ is the first company I have seen that actually prints on the side of the PSU what connectors are tied to each 12V rail. This takes the guesswork and frustration (or opening up a PSU and voiding the warranty) on power supplies with more than two 12V rails. Some top of the line NVIDIA & ATI video cards in multi-GPU (SLI/Crossfire) configurations can actually draw so much current on the 12V rails, that if a PSU is not configured correctly they can shutdown from just barely going over the current limit allowed on a particular rail. OCZ eliminated this issue altogether by having the two PCIe connectors on different rails! Huzzah!

As more and more gamers take advantage of the gaming benefits offered by multi-GPU technology the need for improved power supply solutions increases greatly. The GameXStream features high-quality components to ensure your PCs vital hardware is supplied with clean, stable and reliable power without compromising effectiveness.

As with other OCZ power supplies, the GameXStream features OCZ's exclusive 3 year warranty / PowerSwap replacement program.
