OC3D Review: OCZ EliteXStream 1000w ATX PSU

"With 80 amps on a single +12v rail, it looks like some PCP&C lovin' may have rubbed off on OCZ's latest EliteXStream PSU."

nice review

on the second page i believe it is, the WxHxD is set to 1x1x1 ...one what?

and i dont think its a perfect cube lol

other than that, and the fact it looks oddly grey in some pic's, good review

and a good product, good to see OCZ utilising their newfound purchase, and actualy pumping out some quality goods here

*gives buff a cookie*

...and a very good OEM too I might add. Looks like there's been some changes to their normal design too, with uprated caps and a few other little extra's.

Non modular, single rail?

Goes against everything I shop for in a PSU, but I want this one so bad!

Great review Jim....

modular provides resistance, which lowers performance, and multiple rails might not be balanced, so therfore load isnt evenly spread...this is better

Getting one,just waiting for mine to arrive, cant wait!

modular would have been nice but the quality out weighs any cabling problems it might throw at me.

Cheers, getting her in my grubby mitts soon

Nice small unit and a good length to the cables which is a bonus as theres a LOT of them!
