Installing the power supply is just like any other, simply attach the four screws and use the power connectors that you need. The white coloring of the PSU is a nice contrast inside of a completely black case.
The following system was used for testing:
- Windows 7 64-bit
- AMD Phenom II X6 1100T @ 3.3 GHz
- Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 RAM 8GB (2 x 4GB)
- ASRock 890FX Deluxe5
- Sapphire HD 5830 Xtreme 1GB
- G.Skill Phoenix Pro 40GB Solid State Drive
To test the power supply we ran OCCT’s PSU test for a 30 minute interval, running at fullscreen (1920×1200). Here are the results:
As you can see from the graphs, the 3.3V had a 0.05 ripple (1.42%), 5V had a 0.05 ripple (0.94%) and the 12V had a 0.11 ripple (0.85%). It’s nice to see that this power supply is pretty stable on all voltages.
