In our first set of results, shown above, we look at the performance of the PSU when using our various testing tools to run it in a controlled environment at 40°C. Looking first to the 12v, 3.3v and 5v performance we see a unit which supplies good 12v performance and while the 3.3v/5v lines are within acceptable levels there is some fluctuation as we move through the tests. AC ripple is good, well within requirements at 10/14 (out of 50) on 3.3/5v and 41 (out of 120) on 12v but efficiency is very much scraping in at acceptable levels for Gold Certification.

For noise levels the PSU remains very quiet up to 75% load and temperatures are good for a 1000w unit.
