With providing 700W and four +12V rails, we had tried out the OCZ GameXStream in multiple systems ranging from standard desktop systems to FB-DIMM servers with dual Xeon processors. Throughout all of this, the GameXStream had performed well. The system configuration where we had delivered our results from for this article is listed below.

|Memory:||2 x 1GB OCZ DDR2-800|
|Graphics Card:||ATI Radeon X1800XT|
|Hard Drives:||Seagate 300GB SATA2|
|Optical Drives:||Sony DVD-RW
|Add-On Devices:||Creative Labs Audigy 2 ZS|
|Case:||Cooler Master Mystique 631|
|Power Supply:||OCZ GameXStream 600W|
|Operating System:||Fedora Core 5|
|Linux Kernel:||2.6.17-1.2139_FC5 SMP (x86_64)|
|Graphics Driver:||ATI 8.26.18|
First off, when it comes to the noise of the power supply with its 120mm fan, it was admirably quiet. Its blue LEDs on the fan were also a nice accent. Throughout all of our testing we had ran into no problems with poor airflow or anything along those lines. As usual, our PSU idle results were recorded after the system was idling within GNOME for 30 minutes and power management features disabled. The load testing had occurred by running loops of Doom 3 demo1 and CPU Burn-In v1.00 for the same amount of time. Voltages were measured using a calibrated digital multimeter, and the 12V line was measured from a molex connector.
