Have you met Nosboost?

He's a rich man and is dedicated to the e-peen of Benching!

Has the OCZ Modxstream quality gone up at all lately? I noticed it in the not recommended section and its what I have now. I had to send in my 600w stealthxstream because it stopped working and this is what they sent back. I thought cool free upgrade but according to the list I'm worse off. Heres the one they sent me

i7 940 doesn't have an unlocked multi unless its an ES

If you look at every list, OCZ is there, OCZ is good, they had a few hiccups here and there, as do many brands...

Listing all the specs for each PSU is far beyond what any good PSU Ive seen has.
