I'm happy with this product, I never tried OCZ before but until now I don`t have any complaint about its performance and for its fan I'm really amazing of the low level of noise (almost nothing) that it produce... a good choice for 600W PSU

I bought this PSU thinking in build a medium to high end desktop PC. I have an ASUS M3N72-D, a XFX GeForce 9800 GT, a DVD burner with lightscribe, a Western Digital 250 GB with 16MB cache @7200 rpm, assembled on my new Cooler Master HAF 932 case (with all of their fans connected) and my Thermaltake ProWater 850i LCS.

And this baby rocks!, it have enough wattage for all of this and a little more, I think it will support another video card in SLI configuration! So this is a very good item with a good balance between price and performance.

BTW, I put it to work on my house, with an average ambient temp around 33° C and this PSU with it fan keeps cool, and it is really quiet. In fact the fan included with the LCS (attached with the radiator kind device) is more noisy than this PSU fan, even the case fans.

So I recommend it to buy even with an SLI configuration in mind. Please be careful, I used a 9000 series video card, if you want the GX video cards or similar, you'll probably need a more powerful PSU.

--Update after 1 year
This product are working very well. My PC has been worked so fine, so smooth all this time, after 1 year of heave use (gaming overall).
No failures detected so far. Definitively, recommended.

I bought this for my main computer which came stock with a 500W psu but I heard the psu had problems so I decided to upgrade. The StealthXStream had good reviews and when I had a problem with another OCZ product in the past their customer service was excellent. This PSU is quiet I can't hear it over the fans for my case and the voltage readings are always consistent no matter if I'm gaming or using 3-d modeling programs.

My computer is running an overclocked quad core along with 4 sata hdd's, X-Fi sound card and an 8800gt as well as a ZeroTherm Nirvana cpu cooling fan along with other miscellaneous parts. Voltages never drop more than a few hundredths of a volt.

The original one I bought did give out on me after about 6-7 months and I sent a message to OCZ support explaining what happened and what I tried to do to remedy the problem. They never gave me a run around and sent me an RMA number after a couple days. Sent the RMA unit out on a Friday and had a new one about a week later. All the customer service I have experienced with OCZ has been excellent. So if you're looking for a company that takes care of it's customers buy from OCZ.

The PSU is well built and the large fan pushes a lot of air to cool the unit while being relatively quite. Their 3-year PowerSwap warranty seems good especially if you live in the bay area close to their office like me.

It has 5 legacy molex connectors but only 3 SATA connectors. The main power cable and CPU power cables are somewhat shorter than other PSUs. The PSU in my case is on the side of the I/O slots so there wasn't a lot of slack on the cable.

One annoying thing about the main power connector is that its made of 20-pin connector along with 4-pin connector similar to other PSUs. The 4-pin connector however, is attached in a very flimsy way to the 20-pin. I had to hold them together carefully while inserting into the motherboard. I've seen much better designs from other PSUs. However, once in, it doesn't look like the 4-pin would come loose.

Overall, well built and quite PSU but with some minor oddities.

This unit works as advertised. It was easy to install. I had to buy a 4 pin molex to SATA adapter because the 3 SATA connectors supplied would not reach all my drives. It runs very quite.

It is worth the money.

Had plenty of connectors and runs great on my Core 2 overclocked w/Radeon 3870. Noise is not an issue either. Good value for the money.

I installed this power supply in late November, early December of 2009. In August of 2010 it completely died on me.

My PC setup includes a Radeon 4870, 4 fans, 4 HDs, and a DVD drive. I would not recommend buying the SXS600 if you have a similar GPU because I'm pretty certain that's what killed it. Fortunately, there's an excellent selection of new cards that aren't as power hungry as the 4870. Any of the 5XXX series should be fine (or earlier cards, certainly!)

Anyway, that being said it's a decent PSU with everything you'd want for connecting peripherals, but it's something of a gamble from what I can tell. There's lots of reports of these power supplies dying, so if you can afford a better one by all means please do so.

The saving grace in all this is OCZ received my RMA'd power supply and dropped another in the mail the same day, so kudos for excellent customer service and a very generous warranty.

If you're not worried about a little noise, this power supply is great. It is highly efficient and so far has been really stable for me, despite numerous stress tests. I only downgrade it's score because it's _not quiet_. I did a bit of research before buying this power supply and had read on several boards that OCZ had manufactured many of these with malfunctioning fan controllers and the units would always be stuck on high. OCZ replied by saying that they've pulled all the units that were defective but they must not have made it to mine. Fan stays on high no matter what. It's still not louder than my processor fan so it's not annoying, but it is disappointing because it's much louder than my stock PSU. Besides that, it's a definite workhorse and if you're not worried about noise it's a great deal.

on the bad side, is really heavy, in my case that made the sending to venezuela a little too expensive

------------
edit

after 10 months it died, just sounded puff and died, that is lame, nothing is burned but still doesn't work

i hopped for a brand psu to last at leas 5 years, but i lost the money

this product is amazing, starting with the silent 120mm fan pushing air through the psu helps to cool the case, and the thought that was put into this psu, there is a little gromit around the opening where the wires come out of the psu, all the wires have protective sheaths, the connectors are top notch, and on top of it all install is very very simple, and the amount of wire connectors gives you the option of how you want to run the wires... and the option to ungrade.. or add more components... as well power levels are rock stable.. no dips. this will be the last psu you will ever need to buy
