In our results we look at the performance of the PSU when using our various testing tools to run the it in a controlled environment at 40°C. Looking first to the 12v, 3.3v and 5v performance we see a unit which supplies stable readings across the various lines. There is only minimal fluctuation throughout the tests and this continues elsewhere as AC ripple is also low on each of the readings. Each is well within requirements at 18/12(out of 50) on 3.3/5v and 45(out of 120) on 12v, an impressive result.

Looking at the efficiency of the PSU PC Power and Cooling achieve the gold specification and temperatures are also decent. As before this is particularly impressive as we are running the PSU fanless up to 50% load.
