The OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W did not contain as much foam as other units I have tested. While this does give reduced impact protection, it gains points in this section. Good efficiency and power factor levels give reduced power consumption, with lower shipping costs due to weight, all add up to help even further.
Price Per the Watt:
Power Supply OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W at $89.99 = $0.15/Watt (January 2009)
The OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W performed very well for a power supply in this class. It did fail to deliver 80 Plus compliance using the OCC Testing Methodology , but only just and the DC quality could be better. Yet if efficiency isn't at the top of your list, the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W still performed as good as any in its class and a maximum efficiency of 84% is not to be ignored. The OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W carries Nvidia SLI certification for low end 7000 series cards, which due the available connectors, is all that it is able to support without the use of adapter cables. The price/performance ratio of the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W is very good and will make this power supply a very attractive purchase. It is more than capable of running any high-end single graphic card set up. It looks very well in my opinion and the overall performance is satisfactory. Don't let the minor failures put you off too much and if you are in the market for a 600W unit, the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W is worth considering.
