Externally the OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro is a fairly subdued semi-modular design that looks good. The unit has a nice finish, well sleeved cables, good quality modular cables, and a large overhead fan. However, once we open the unit we find that OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro looks very much like a cheap group regulated unit. This is further compounded by the fact that the unit has some questionable component selections in the mystery "Rec" capacitors. Good capacitors only add slightly to the total cost of a unit so why even something along the lines of Samxon or at the very least Teapo was excluded from this build is bewildering. Further, the unit only features a 3 year warranty and with questionable capacitors this is hardly reassuring. Also related here is the unit’s "documentation." The documentation that came with the unit is simply a waste of time. This fact is punctuated by the power distribution table at the back of the manual was never actually finished by whomever was annotating it. The only upside to all of this is most of the information about the unit is printed on the packaging, but still sans a correct power distribution table as these are genuinely useful. They are especially useful when units do not follow the ATX12v specification or EPS specification for 12v power distribution such as this unit.
The Bottom Line
While we had high hopes for the OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro given OCZ's decent track record and the unusually low standards that other 700w units have set forth in our testing to date the OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro hardly lived up to its “Pro” moniker. The unit’s build quality was decent but the component selection was certainly questionable and in the end the unit was unable to complete our testing at full power. As such at $104.99 (after MIR) the OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro simply cannot be recommended, especially in light of the fact that its PC Power & Cooling stablemate, the Silencer 750 Quad, can be had for $104.99 (after MIR) and actually does perform well in our testing. In the end the OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro is just another in a long line of 700 watt victims in our testing regiment.
Update - 11/13/2008: A Chinese speaking reader pointed us to the company that builds the capacitors found on the PSU. Transcend Electorlytic Co. in Shenzhen. (http://www.trec-con.com/
) My browser identifies Malware on that page so I did not hotlink it. Even with the find of the company, TREC unknown to us.
All your other parts are fine you can sell those and get some money but the PSU sory no
Oh yes the WD Black is a much better driver
