The complete system manufacturer PC Power & Cooling recently acquired by OCZs includes overvoltage , Overcurrent and short circuit protection provided power supply Silencer 610 EPS12V with a maximum continuous power of 610 watts (670 watts at peak) and an efficiency of 83 percent. The power supply offers 24-pin, 8-pin, 4-pin, 2 x 6-pin PCIe video, 6 x SATA, 8 x Molex and 1 x mini connections. The volume of the fan is 26-38dB (A).
Another power supply comes from OCZ's own power supply portfolio. The StealthXstream with an output of 600 watts has four separate 12-volt rails that are supposed to distribute the power evenly and also has an efficiency of 83 percent and protection against overvoltage , Overcurrent and short circuits. Its power is passed on to the computer components via 1 x 20 + 4-pin ATX, 2 x 4-pin CPU, 2 x PCIe, 5 x 4-pin Molex for peripherals, 1 x 4-pin floppy and 3 x SATA. A 120 mm fan provides cooling.
The CPU cooler Vendetta relies on heat pipes and a large cooling surface, with a 92 mm fan providing the necessary air exchange. In cooperation with Xigmatek, known for its own good processor coolers, the cooler block with the fine fins was created. It should distribute the transmitted heat from the three heat pipes over a large area so that the fan has an easy time cooling the aluminum fins. The fan works with 1,200 to a maximum of 2,800 revolutions per minute. The volume should not exceed 34 db (A) during full operation, in the slowest mode only 22 db (A) should be achieved.
The XTC Cooler enables active cooling of the main memory from OCZ. The fan assembly made of aluminum is attached to the mounting brackets on the memory banks. When using the two 60 mm ultra-low-noise fans with blue LEDs, OCZ promises more power (through increased overclocking potential), higher stability and a longer service life of the modules.
