Nope it's an OCZ ModXstream, if I were Joey117 I'd get rid quick before it fries the system.

Only takes one second to from a testing PSU... To a PSU that makes you rage because another PSU died on you on top killing everything else... So yeah we aren't calm.

In no way I rage about it the psu blow up more the the non-existent warranty but the power supply you're all talking about is so bad has been running since 2009 24/7 in surveillance box it has lasted almost triple the length of time that a Corsair premium brand power supply has I have more faith in thar power supply than any other part of the pc

I once thought that too, mine lasted right through it's warranty and beyond.. I was told repeatedly by the guys here even the Guv pleaded with me to replace it but I didn't, 2 weeks later it went pop and took my GPU, half my memory and an SSD with it.

I can only go from my own personal experience with the OCZ ModXSteam 500W, they are good when they work and maybe your's won't pop.. no one can truly say. But for the sake of a bloody good rig I just wouldn't risk it.
