Well I went through two OCZ PowerStreams myself. First one blew upon power up, either faulty, I wired it up wrong or it was a US model, never asked what was officially wrong with it. My second one died in a power surge we had in the house, luckily the PSU jsut killed itself and nothing else was damaged. It was funny though, in a way, as my PC was the ONLY thing I own that I didnt have on a Purge Protected extention cord, irony eh! Anyway I still swear by them, they’re stable as hell, are fantastic for overclocking and look the business too.
