OCZ StealthXStream 2 600 W Power Supply Review

The OCZ StealthXStream 2 600W PSU arrives in a subtle blue and black accented box which is both attractive and nicely understated.

The supply is packaged in a chunky section of bubblewrap which offers moderate shipping protection. Ours shipped with a European Power adapter and a user manual. There was also a little pouch of mounting screws. All the bare basics as we would expect at this price point.

The PSU is rather ‘sporty’ looking and we like the looks, its a simple plain design which works well – you really can’t go wrong with a black paint job and a large black 120mm fan. The Unit is 5.5 inches deep (140mm).

The power supply is not a modular unit so everything is wrapped up in a felt cable tie when you open the box.

OCZ StealthXStream 600W (Cables)
1x Main motherboard 1x 20/24 pin x 1 (46 cm)
1x PCI E 1x six/Eight pin connector and 1x 6 pin (44cm)
4 x Sata Power Connectors (46cm)
2x ATX 12V Connectors (44cm)
3x Molex power connectors (46cm)
3x Molex power connector and 1x floppy (46cm)

Obviously when compared to a higher end product this cable selection seems somewhat limited, but these are built to specific price points. When we look at the older StealthXStream unit this is an identical wiring configuration except the new unit has a single 6 pin and a 6/8 pin PCIe option – the older one was supplied with 2 x 6 pin connectors.

The 120mm fan is branded with an OCZ sticker and there is a specifications sticker on the chassis also.

  1. I cant get over the price of this, that is very cheap. especially for such a well constructed unit/

  2. OCZ are onto another winner I see, the original unit was very good value as well, especially at the price. nice to see they improved this one and didnt mess it up.

  3. The addition of an 8 pin PCiE makes huge sense, it was what has been putting a friend of mine off buying one for a while, even though the price was right. glad to see they have maintained the good regulation throughout.

  4. This is an absolutely brilliant release from OCZ and while i adored the review of the corsair AW1200 on kitguru recently, that is as much as I would pay for a graphics card, or more! this is priced just right and will handle even a GTX480. love it, and stellar review again.

  5. Well color me impressed with this PSU, first review ive seen of it online, didnt know they even had a new range. Excellent product by the looks of it.

  6. what a great product at an even better price. I used to have an OCZ PSU, never had any problems with it either, would recommend them or corsair.

  7. This is really very hard to fault at such an incredible retail price. you dont get this kind of quality normally at such a low price. just shows you though how many people chase wattage figures when you dont really need it. 600-700w is more than enough for anyone today, unless they are into high end SLI or CFX

  8. I love kitgurus PSU reviews. so informative for both experienced and novice users. conclusion alone had me sold, shall hunt this out for my brother for his system soon.

  9. Very very solid product from OCZ and as everyone else has said, it is hard to fault for that price point. normally you end up with a fung wung no name easter make at £50.

  10. My PSU died last night! this looks to be a good shortlist option, as well as the slightly more expensive Thermaltake 750w reviewed here a few weeks ago.

    What do you guys think, 600W enough for futureproofing? might be a bit tight.

  11. Is that price right? that seems very good pricing from OCZ, they aren’t normally so cheap.

  12. Nice looking PSU too, isnt it? those enermax ones lately are like blinged out and look awful

  13. I had a b ad experience with a gamesstream unit years ago and I swear I will never touch OCZ again, it caught fire and starting smoking. I am sure this is good but once you get burned like that, you never go back.

  14. Great review, looks very competitively priced and performance is more than enough for anything today, apart from dual GFX configurations

  15. Great review, time for an order for my new system with a GTX460 in it 🙂

  16. Great review of this, I only found a few reviews online and both say its great/ OCZ have my money 🙂

  17. SO many wonderful products reviewed on this site, great the ‘crap filter’ for rubbish products means other sites get the tosh 🙂

  18. Found this site from google, cant imagine ive never seen it before, bookmarked!
