[Newegg] OCZ EliteXStream available - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Yeah, the Silencers are Seasonics and the Turbo-Cools are rebranded server psus. That's why they are so expensive, they are built to last.

The Elites are OCZ's first time using Impervio units so no one really knows, but these should hold up better compared to some of their other stuff.

They're ok.... cheaper due to volume.
Once again...

i have ran a 700w gamer extreme in my intel rig for almost 2 years. NO problems. I actually built my opty 165 rig with the PSU behind it back in the day, when those chips came out. Then i transfered this PSU over to my intel rig... Ran all sorts of intel based motherboards, at various OC levels. I had 2 x 8800GTX video cards, and 4 hdds at one point. This PSU ran fine...
good enough

Well with OCZ you have to do your research.

Modstream/Powerstream (Topower) - early ones weren't very good but some were updated with improved versions that were decent.

ModXStream/StealthXStream/GameXStream (FSP Epsilon) - fairly good supplies, but overstretched I think due to high ripple at high loads on the lower wattage psus and the higher wattage psus have trouble reaching stated max loads and bad ripple throughout the load range.

EvoStream/ProXStream (3Y) - Pretty nice psus but are loud and have below average efficiency.

I'm sure I missed something .

You got the basics down

Side Note: Not all PSUs with the same OEM parts are the same quality. The Corsair HX series, the Antec Truepower Trio series and the PC Power & Cooling Silencer series are all based on Seasonic OEM parts. However, there are definite quality differences between those PSUs. The Antecs are inferior compared to both the Corsair and the PC P&C units, while the latter two are both excellent PSUs (although a different design).
