One of the biggest industry news announcements this year came just a few weeks ago when OCZ Technology announced the acquisition of PC Power & Cooling. PCPC has long been regarded as the top power supply manufacturer in the world, and with OCZ taking over the reins, I expect to see some great things from both companies in the very near future. In a nutshell, OCZ will obtain PCPC's expertise in the power supply market and PCPC will benefit by receiving a much higher market share.

That statement may be a little misleading, as OCZ already has several successful lines of PSUs and a huge reach in the market. Today we will be taking a look at the ModXStream 780, one of two new ModXStream power supplies released just two months ago. The ModXStream series features modular cables and is aimed at being a quiet solution for gamers and enthusiasts.

OCZ uses bright and colorful artwork on the retail package of the ModXStream. The front of the box shows a picture of the power supply, a list of features, wattage rating and the ever-popular 36-month PowerSwap warranty. The back of the box gives a bit more detail on the specifications/features and breaks down the cables included with the unit. Below is a list of the features shown on the front of the box as well as the complete specs list, borrowed from OCZ's website.

EZMod Advanced Cable Management System: Arrange your personal cable configuration in seconds and eliminate cable mazes while improving airflow.

Silent Operation: PowerWhisper technology diminishes noise to ensure silent, yet efficient operation.

Multi-GPU Ready: The durable and powerful ModXStream is equipped to fuel the demands of gaming rigs.

Active PFC: Active PFC circuitry effectively regulates input voltage to deliver superior operation in a wide range of environments and countries with varying voltages.

Superior Cooling: Supreme air flow, courtesy of an ultra-quiet yet extremely vigorous 120mm fan complete with brilliant blue LEDs.

EMI Isolated Casing: Sleek black chassis effectively reduces EMI.

Everything looks solid in the specs list, so let's move ahead and check out the package contents...
