Default OCZ PowerStream 520ADJ Power Supply

So I'm waiting for someone with OCZ to get back with me. If they tell me this is normal, I'll grade accordingly. If they tell me that it's bad, I'll have to see if they'll swap the unit out. I can't just run out and spend another $150 on another power supply and I can't RMA this one where I got it from because I opened it up. So this review may never have a conclusion....

maybe some real-world testing would help him make a conclusion

Likely he has a "semi-defective" unit.

I forgot I still have the CB Radio and 10-meter band ham rig plus a 100-watt linear amp. I might try to hook it to the 12-volt rail and see if the OCZ Powerstream could last before the circuit trips.

The Linear Amp draws 20 AMPS at 13.8 Volt.

I guess I like too many darn things and master nothing.
