Overclocking can put a tremendous amount of stress on the PSU. I already showed you the minor differences with dealing with idle and total loads, but not many people can max out processing power. So I reran the first two tests with just an overclocked CPU. The difference from idle to under load is what we are concerned with. We already know it will handle a heavy work load, but by bumping up the volts on the memory and CPU we will see if it can keep up with the extra volts required. All the rails stayed above their specs. Check the table below for the differences.
Once again the 12v rail was the only one to show a lost. Compared to the idle non-overclocked readings, these aren't far off, and even better in some instances.
Let's take another look at those fans. I was hesitant at first about how well four fans would work for my purposes. People use less than four fans to cool their entire PC, and this PSU alone has this many. There are two factors that worry me. The first one is the sound, and second is whether it need those four fans running at max to keep these volts up. While running the fully loaded tests on the Super Flower, I switched the fan to different modes and let it continue for 10 minutes, and took readings again. You can see my results in the table below.
There appears to be no difference in the different fan modes. This leads me to the conclusion that the PSU, with everything I could throw at it, was not affected by the temperature inside the unit. If you donít plan on torturing the PSU more than I have, put the switch to low and leave it there.
