Default OCZ EliteXStream 800W Review Comment Thread

OCZ has finally lanuched a replacement for their lackluster GameXStream 850W and 1010W power supplies!! This new EliteXStream series looks to push the envelope in the price / performance category to new heights. It is a hell of a power supply with only a few slip ups.

You can read the review here: OCZ EliteXStream 800W Power Supply Review

I would also like to announce that ALL of the pictures in the main review sections use our new "image zoom" function. Try it out...it is something a bit different.

Please use this thread to post all your questions, comments rants and raves.

Looks like a decent unit. Great to see OCZ working its way back into the game.

I loved my ModStream 520, and the 600W GameXstream was a strong contender for quite a while as well.

And yeah.... strange choice for the embossed OCZ info on the side....... It'd look great but we can't see it in the case. :(

Nice unit and great review SKY.

I am looking to upgrade my ageing epsilon unit and this might fit the bill, while it would have been nice to see the cables sleaved the whole way, it isnt hard to sleave the exposed leads yourself.

Just popped it into my case. The cables are the perfect length for cases where the PSU is mounted at the bottom. I don't have to pull my 8-pin connector over top of everything else just to make it barely reach anymore.

Looking good so far. Hopefully this fixes the stability issues I've been having. If not, time for a new mobo.


Thanks SKY!

Looks like a nice PSU for the price for sure. 5 year warranty is longer than average as well.

ps - Love the zoom thing.
