Default OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W for $75.99 + Free Shipping

Newegg.ca - OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

Fifty bucks off the original price then a $30 USD rebate then free shipping, this is a great PSU. It's 80 Plus, modular and delievers 700W of constant power so that means it actually can supply 718.1W if you add up all the watts.

How does the public view this compared to other modular PSUs, such as the Corsair HX series? The Corsair PSUs have established a name for them in the computer market and all of their PSUs are excellent.

Yoda, consider making one thread listing these hot deals instead of making separate threads in a short time span. Both this and your TX850 thread is from Newegg and were made in a short amount of time. If I was a mod, I would merge the two threads together.

And same goes to your Rosewill thread. Plus Rosewill is a Newegg brand and if I'm correct, it's not that good.

The brand slapped on the side of the PSU matters not, the OEM who makes them does. The reason Corsair PSU's are almost always recommenced is because a lot of them of them are based on a CWT design, and while it is an older design, its a very solid, reliable OEM. The rest are based on Seasonic, also a great OEM.

I can't find any info on the OEM of the OCZ PSU, but from what I read its rated at 100,000 hours @ 25c which doesn't bold well for it(most GOOD OEM designs are rated at 100,000 @ 40c or 50c). I suspect that the 700Watt OCZ is really a 500-600Watt design pushed to its limits in disguise.

Well, there you go, I wouldn't touch the PSU with a ten foot pole, way better brands and possible buy's at $75.

Yep..you got it right Chilly

However, I find the OCZ GameXStream and Stealthstream to be pretty decent if you can get them on sale. No match for corsair but good daily workhorses.

Man, to think that this 700W GameXStream is better than the modxstream is pretty funny. Not sure if I remember correctly but I think the modxstreams were pretty bad overall except some of the later ones according to a few reviews I've read.

Just had a 600Watt GameExtreme die on me after only about 1.5 years of lite use (200watt max draw). My buddy also had his die after less than a year. I'm not too impressed with OCZ PSUs. I had it running in a windows home server when it died and it wasn't even powering a video card. I've got cheap Sparkle brand and Seasonic brand 400 watt PSUs that are running higher loads and are doing much better. My two Corsairs are all doing great as well. I replaced the PSU with an Enermax pro 82+ (all I could get at the B&M in my town on short notice) so I will have to see how that goes. So far it seems like a decent PSU.

OCZ has not produced a decent PSU for some time. Best to avoid them really........

IMO, this is not a deal:

It is the price this PSU SHOULD be. I wouldn't touch one of these PSU's even if you paid me to use it in my rig.

My GameXStream 600W is still running strong. Let's see what happens in the future...

As for the ModXStream. Thanks for letting me know to stay away from it :)
