Note: Even with my hurried attempt to install this PSU as fast as I could (excitement was my enemy) you can clearly see the difference this PSU makes! More room and more airflow means a cooler overall system. I also noticed a decrease in fan noise with this PSU which is in keeping with my new goal to make my systems as quiet as possible for maximum enjoyment.
Those that know me know that I don't hold back my opinions. If I don't like something rest assured I'll let you know. Now let me say this. I like this PSU....a lot. And I'll give you two big reasons, 1) With alittle work this PSU can go a long way to making a well-organized case interior. For me a good looking system is just as important as a fast running one. And 2) Power, and lots of it. What's even better is that I don't have to sacrifice my ears in the process. I'll be converting this system to watercooling soon. Now that I've installed this power supply there's no way I'm going to let me undervolted CPU fan be the loudest part of this system.
The cables are beautifully assembled and don't feel cheap at all. At the same time they do bend easily and are extremely easy to route. The 100% modular design in a real plus. I love being able to install only the cables I need. The kit is perfect but I would like to see OCZ sell replacement/extra cables of varying length to be made available for purchase separately. Now that we've got a modular PSU let's take advatage of that! Difference colors would be nice too for those that are really looking to customize their system(s).
I experienced absolutely no stability problems with the PSU. The fit and finish are outstanding and are worth of display. The EVOStream line of PSU's from OCZ promise to be another great set of products from a company we have grown to love!
