While OCZ Technology is primarily known for their vast selection of memory products, they have had interest in developing cooling and power supplies as well. For some time they have had the OCZ PowerStream and ModStream PSU series; however, only recently did they unveil their high-performance successor: the GameXStream. The OCZ GameXStream power supply is meant to suit high-end power-hungry systems for gamers, enthusiasts, and power users. Currently the GameXStream is only available in two flavors: 600W and 700W. Some of the features for this power supply unit include OCZ PowerWhisper Technology, Multi-GPU ready (NVIDIA SLI certified), OCZ ConnectAll connectors, and Active PFC.

Features:

· 600W and 700W Configurations
· OCZ PowerWhisper Technology
· Multi-GPU ready
· Internal 120mm fan
· OCZ 3-year PowerSwap Warranty
· ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V
· OCZ ConnectAll connectors
· Active PFC

The packaging for the OCZ Technology GameXStream 700W was very glamorous. The package was colorful and OCZ was certain to list all of the relevant features from the EMI isolated casing to their 3-year PowerSwap warranty. Once removing all of the contents, we were left with the actual 700W PSU, four mounting screws, OCZ user manual, and a US power cord. Inside the retail container, the PSU itself was wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap to prevent possible damage. Unlike a great deal of power supply manuals that usually end up containing complete rubbish for those that are experienced in the PC and electrical fields, the OCZ manual does do a nice job on documenting all of the details from the actual specifications to wiring diagrams.
