    Super Flower PSU - Testing

    (Page 3 of 6 )

    It's time to see how the power supply handles under different loads. We will begin with idle readings, move to casual usage, and finally go for an all out, throwing at it everything I can, test. These will be real world tests, so Iím also going to run the Antec Truepower 430 watt PSU along side and see how the Super Flower compares. The Antec has been a favorite around this site, even earning the much-coveted OCA recommendation.

    He is our test setup:

    • Abit Ai7
    • Pentium 4 2.6c
    • 1 GB HyperX
    • Nvidia 6800
    • Samsung 7200 RPM 80GB SATA HD
    • ASUS 52x CD-ROM
    • Sony DVD Burner
    • SoundBlaster Audigy PCI sound card
    • Theater 550 TV tuner
    • 6 case fans

    Idle Test 

    The first test is the idle. I let the computer boot up, and after start up I let it idle for 10 minutes. After that I took readings from the main ATX connector, measuring the 3.3v, 5v and 12v rails. All I did was stick the black end into one of the ground wires and the red one into the corresponding rails.

    Nothing surprising here, both performed above the standard volts. If any one of these was below the standard level, then the rest of the test would be shaky.
