|OCZ Technology GameXStream 700W Power Supply Unit
When you hear the name OCZ Technology, most likely you think of top quality computer memory, not power supplies and cooling products. While OCZ has been manufacturing memory since 2000, they also have a well respected line of power supplies. Like the OCZ memory, their power supplies are built for computer enthusiasts and gamers, and their latest power supply is designed for enthusiasts who demand the best. The GameXStream series provides enthusiasts with power for multi-GPU (SLI/Cross-Fire), Active PFC, and silent operation in both 600W and 700W models. I will be taking a look at OCZ's highest rated power supply, the 700W GameXStream, and we'll see if it holds true to OCZ's reputation.
