OC3D Review: OCZ ProXStream 1kw OCZ1000PXS ATX PSU

"Today I'll be looking at OCZ's first entry into the 1000w domain with their brand new ProXStream 1kw unit based around a standard ATX sized casing. Will it be any better than the other similarly sized 1kw units we've tested recently? Read on to find out."

Not impressed tbh - enermax ftw... Agreed, fairly decent performance, but who wants fairly decent when you can have unequivocal top notch performance elsewhere?

Decent review though...

Cheers mate. If it was a fair bit cheaper then I think it would stand a much better chance. Being only a few quid different to some of the top-end units makes it hard to justify buying unless you REALLY want 1kw and you REALLY don't have space.

for a 1k psu and the size, and also using a 80mm fan, i think its a rather good psu, if they used a 120mm fan im sure temps and the sound would be dropped alot more.

Looks to be a decent unit, I like the size. I don't like the noise output though, that's a killer for me.

Review updated. It has been reported that the unit is available for up to £25 less at other retailers. Pricing score has been adjusted from 7 to 8.
