OCZ Technology Launches the Highly Efficient EliteXStream PSU

OCZ Technology Group yesterday unveiled the EliteXStream power supply family for high-powered gaming systems and workstations. Designed to offer the consumer market an enthusiast-grade computer power supply with a state-of-the-art architecture, the EliteXStream is the ultimate power solution for those users that require an ultra-efficient, highly reliable, high-wattage solution for their leading-edge gaming machine.


Co-developed with the experts at PC Power & Cooling, the EliteXStream is a flagship model among OCZ’s lineup of gamer-oriented power supplies. Expanding on a lineup of powerful and stable PSUs, OCZ designed the 800W and 1000W EliteXStream for optimum power distribution to all components by utilizing the superior "single +12V rail" design perfected by PC Power & Cooling. This trail-blazing approach to +12V rail design ends the need to budget power "across the rails" as is the case with the less effective multi-rail design found in the vast majority of high-performance PSUs on the market today.

“I am excited to bring a high-performance PSU to market that so effectively fuses the in-depth gaming and enthusiast experience of OCZ with the legendary power supply expertise of the PC Power & Cooling division”, said Ryan Edwards, PSU Product Manager for the OCZ Technology Group. “Featuring up to 86% efficiency, a staggering single +12V rail output, a complete array of connectors, and an attractive MSRP, the new EliteXstream Series of PSUs sets a new standard for both the OCZ brand and the high-performance industry in general”.

With a new collection of enthusiast platforms recently released, power solutions need to be capable of handling multi-GPU setups and power-hungry processors. Providing sufficient power for all your high-end components, the EliteXStream will provide stable, well distributed, certified power to today’s most power hungry platforms and beyond. Each powerful yet energy-efficient EXS model is certified under the 80+ efficiency program so they run cool and save on utility power.

The EliteXStream will be available in 800W and 1000W configurations, delivering up to 1KW of continuous power through a complete array of connectors including four 8-pin (6+2) PCI-E and 17 drive connectors. These PSUs are kept supremely cool with a large 120mm fan and feature a standard ATX power supply form factor. The EliteXStream offers one of the industry's most robust consumer power supply designs on the market, and is backed by an incredible 5-Year warranty and unmatched technical support from the OCZ Technology Group.

Looks sweet! I want to rip that fan out and put a UV Orange one in there!

I hope they're well-priced (at least $50 less than the PCP&C) but they probably won't be.

Exactly what I had hoped would come from this buyout. PCP&C psus without the noisy 80cm fans. Hopefully modular versions are next.

The fans should be a yate loon 120mm like in the stealthXstreme (same fan as the orange nexus 120mm models)

I love my corsair 650 CMPSU, but this is an awesome looking PSU. Anything PC P&C is uber goodness and I expect the same. I also agree with the fan. The 80MM fans were a bit noisy.

As I know FSP, PCP&C and OCZ are made in the same factory.
Btw I have StealthXstream 600w and it's loudest thing in my pc. Maybe it's from first revision with dead thermal sensor. :)

they're based on load afaik... they crank up to 100% after about 300W use.

I just cut mine out, swapped it with another (same spec) fan hardwired at 10v :D

No, PCP&C and FSP aren't made in the same factory. FSP is an actual PSU builder. They are an OEM.

PCP&C are made by Seasonic.

Never looked into OCZ's earlier lines to know who makes them tho.

i had it backwards then. gameX and stealthX are teh same unit, so they're both FSP then.
