Quoted from OCZ EliteXStream Reviews:Check out these quotes from OCZ EliteXStream reviews & previews
"Lots of connectors, lots of power, and not a lot of noise and heat -- the OCZ EliteXStream 800W is quite a sweet power supply. Sources indicate that the OCZ EliteXStream 800W tested with professional equipment gave excellent numbers in performance and efficiency. It makes it quite a winning combination; a quick check at retail price shows that the OCZ EliteXStream series offers surprising amount of bang for your buck!"
"As the EliteXstream is aimed towards hardcore enthusiasts, it may not be the best choice for everybody else. For example, the many long cables may annoy a modder who would like to hide them and the fast spinning fan could be an annoyance for a user requiring a high powered, totally silent system. If you require a 800w unit with extremely good electrical performance and build quality this Is one of the best units we have tested. Highly Recommended."
"We may rave about certain aspects about the EliteXStream but there are some unfortunate slip-ups here which we have berated other power supplies for in the past. As we have seen, the sleeving job on the cables can only be described as a bit lazy with sleeving on the SATA and Molex cables stopping at the first connector. The wires are then left to tumble free while displaying their multi-colored glory all over an otherwise clean build. Other than this, the only thing which bothered us a bit was the fact that there was no plastic grommet around the area where the cables enter the housing of the EliteXStream. This shouldnt cause many long-term issues since the sleeving itself is tightly bound at certain intervals with zip-ties. Indeed, the OCZ EliteXStream has many endearing qualities about it but none more so than its price. With this unit retailing for under $170 here in Canada, OCZ has just set a new benchmark for affordability in the high-end power supply market. There are plenty of us who love the prestige (*cough* large e-peen *cough*) that comes with having an ultra-expensive power supply, but this unit has proven great performance doesnt have to carry with it great cost."
"Combining excellent performance along with a compact size that ensures even those of us with small cases have enough juice to power a multi-gpu setup, the EliteXStream is without doubt one of the best PSU's OCZ have released to date."
"The OCZ EliteXStream 800W power supply is a great looking piece of hardware that does not have many flashy eye-catching features on the power supply, though it does have a very sleek design that could be favored by all. I personally do not like the LED fans that come in most of the power supplies that will light up half your room at night. Along the same lines of the fan that is included, the power supply operated at a more silent level than my OCZ GameXStream power supply does. I liked how many different connectors there are on this power supply, which will make it very versatile between different setups; however, it would have been nice if OCZ could have added a modular or partial modular design, the wire management was not quite as easy due to the large number of wires to hide."
