    I would recommend providing the make & model of your PSU and we could better assist you.
  2. Pretty much, no. To really test a PSU takes some fairly exotic test equipment.

    Brand and model can be a good indicator. Strangely enough, its weight in comparison with similarly rated power supplies is a good indication. The better PSU will be heavier.
