Interior/Cables





As the warning sticker suggests, removing the cover on your power supply will void your warranty so I wouldn't exactly recommend doing so. But since inquiring minds want to know, we did anyway. The internals of this power supply are perhaps the most impressive I have seen to date. The sheer amount of components that OCZ has managed to squeeze into such a small space and the ability to cool everything with a single 80mm fan speaks for itself. While I wouldn't necessarily follow the old saying of "the heavier the power supply, the greater the quality" - the ProXStream is certainly one of the heavier units I have tested.





The ProXStream has every wire sleeved; the four PCI-E cables are red while the remaining cables are black. I think the red cables contrast the black nicely and will make them stand out as the center of attention when being used in a system. The list of cables and connectors is as follows: four PCI-E connectors, 20+4 pin ATX power cable, 4-pin and 8-pin CPU cables, six 4-pin Molex connectors with quick-release fittings, two 4-pin Floppy-style connectors and six SATA connectors. All of the cables look great but I would like to have seen OCZ use a modular cable system, which would offer better wire management, eliminating cables that you may not need.
