Installation & Testing
Power supply installation is pretty much the same on all cases, but we are actually installing this power supply in the AZZA Genesis 9000 Full Tower Case. The Power supply actually gets installed in the front of the case. Installation was pretty easy and we were up and running in no time. The modular cables do look awesome once installed! There is just something about them that just makes them look cool!
Now for testing, our test system is comprised of the following items:
Processor: Intel Core i7-3820
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 Pro
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD6950
Memory: 16GB G.Skill RipjawsZ
Power Supply: FSP Aurum Pro 850W
Storage: 750GB SATA II Drive
Cooling: Noctua NH-L12
Case: AZZA Genesis 9000 with 7 fans
We will be running OCCT for 1 hour to stress test the power supply. Initial spot checks on the 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails are 3.31V, 5.08V and 12.19V respectively. Below you will find the results of our tests.
The 5V rail had the most ‘ripple’ as you can see from the graph above. It also had the most deviation at 1.18%. The 3.3V rail had a deviation of 0.90% and the 12V rail had a deviation of 0.82%. We like to see a deviation of 5% or less so these results are very good.
