The OCZ ModXStream comes packaged in a colorful retail box with a molded foam divider on the bottom to keep the power supply and accessories from moving around during shipping.

The ModXStream Pro series of power supplies are not 100% modular, the 24-pin ATX and both 4 and 8-pin motherboard cables are hard wired to the unit. The user manual looks impressive from the outside, however only the first two pages are in English, the remaining are alternate languages.

The modular cables come in a handy nylon bag and include one 6-pin PCIe, one 6+2-pin PCIe, four Molex, two floppy and six SATA connections.

The ModXStream Pro 600 offers 25A on each of the four rails, +3.3v, +5v and two +12v. Knowing PC Power and Cooling's stand on multi-12v rail power supplies I was a bit surprised that OCZ would design this model like that. The UL listed E243823 is registered to OCZ Technology, so no surprise there.

The rear of the ModXStream Pro uses an open mesh design to maximize airflow from the 140mm cooling fan. The modular connections for the cables are either 8-pin format for PCIe or 6-pin for everything else.

Next let's have a look at installation and testing.
