PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 600 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ600MXSP)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Modular (NICE!)
-Seems to be good quality for the most part

Cons: -I know people say multiple rails aren't bad, but I like single rails. But 25A on each rail IS really good for a 600W.
-Capacitors only rated to 85 degrees. Pretty ok but 105C is my magic number.
-3 year warranty, pretty ok, but not 5 year

Other Thoughts: -So it gets the job done. But you can't power more than one high end graphics card.
-So you drop $75. Technically you get a $15 rebate but, in my opinion, the thing still costs $75... Spend $90 for the XFX Core 650WPRO for higher quality... or $110 for the Corsair TX750 (on super sale) if you want to crossfire. These are both made by SeaSonic and are very high quality for the cheapest price plus a 5 year warranty. Neither modular but much better quality than this one. Although, this one has pretty ok quality.

5 out of 5 eggs Very Effective and QUIET! 08/18/2011

This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler

Pros: Drops temperatures way way down. I'm not near my computer so can't look but it doesn't even break a sweat under full loads. I have a HD6790. I don't know if it would work as well for HD68+ but I imagine it would definitely drop temps more than your stock and be a lot quieter.

Cons: Fan is three pin and doesn't fit the fan header on your graphics card. Luckily it cools so well it is not really a factor. My fans run at less than half or at about half and never need more.

Other Thoughts: It's definitely effective. Still, it would be nice for it to plug into the card's fan header.

4 out of 5 eggs Really works 01/29/2011

This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler

Pros: Heat sink and fans work really well. Dropped my temperatures a good 10-15 C on my power color HD6870 (the old one that looks just like the reference card). Not only did it drop my temperatures it is very quiet. Before it sounded like a hair blower, now I hear... NOTHING.

Cons: Ok... I am really perturbed about this. The fans are not PWM and therefore cannot be regulated by the graphics card. They can plug into your graphics card 4 pin slot but only three wires run from it and they run at 100% all the time. This really butters my biscuits. It does come with a 3 pin and 4 pin molex adapter so you can plug it into one of your mother board headers and regulate it that way. I've got them spinning at 50% almost all the time because SpeedFan can't read my GPU temperature and adjust it automatically. But still, at 50%, my card stays under 60 C and mostly lower 50's and upper 40's which is sooooo much better than the stock cooler.... and completely quiet. With FurMark the temperatures can get into the 60's but that's really extreme. And if I turn the fans up to 100%, mid 50's tops.

Other Thoughts: How much is it to ask for a real PWM fan?
