Examination:

OCZ's ModXStream Pro power supply is not fully modular as the motherboard power connectors are already attached, considering they are mandatory for operation. Besides the 20/24-pin motherboard, 4-pin CPU, and 8-pin CPU connectors, the modular connections include one 6-pin PCI Express, one 6+2-pin PCI Express, four 4-pin molex, two FDD, and six Serial ATA. EZMod Technology is OCZ's name for their advanced cable management system feature. On the power supply itself is also a sticker showing the pin-outs for each modular connector. The red connectors are for PCI Express. Each of the modular cables is of a sufficient length that they should have no problems even in a moderately sized ATX chassis.


The ModXStream Pro uses dual +12V rails and has 25 Amps on each of the four main voltage rails (+3.3V, +5V, +12V1, and +12V2). The maximum combined power between the two +12V rails is 504 Watts. On the bottom of the power supply is a 140mm fan that will dynamically adjust its fan speed depending upon load. A fan grille with an OCZ logo in the center covers this fan.

At the rear of the power supply is the on/off switch and standard power connector. This side of the power supply is made of an open mesh design for greater airflow.

The side of the power supply has the usual sticker showing various specifications for the OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W (OCZ600MXSP).
