Have you ever been to the local computer store, just browsing the aisles, and you begin to make comparisons based solely on how something looks, how it's packaged, and so on? I know I'm guilty of it. You want to just spend some time looking around so you don't bother checking out the reviews first, and now you're thinking about buying that new power supply or that new motherboard because it seems like even the packaging was well thought out? To some, this may seem silly, but it happens more often than you think. What's this all about you ask? It's about the latest power supply available to us for review, the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W. It is certainly well packaged, but will it deliver the rock solid voltages that we're looking for?
When the unit arrived at the doorstep, I got really excited. I did not realize until that day that OCZ is not just a single company, but a group of companies. When I got to the door, the box said PC Power & Cooling, which turns out to be part of that group, in big bold letters. For those of you that don't know, they are the premier manufacturers of PC power supplies. They were the first ones to develop a 1kW PSU, for instance. They are also known for being rock solid. This particular power supply is from OCZ, not PC Power & Cooling itself, however, so let's see if it will live up to the lineage and perform as well as its big brother.
