Check out our PSUs 101 article to learn more about PSU protection features.
Our protection features evaluation methodology is described in detail here.
|OCP||12V1: 34.28A (137.12%), 11.77V 12V2: 34.24A (136.96%), 11.80V 12V3: 38.8A (155.2%), 11.60V 5V: 26.3A (131.5%), 5.035V 3.3V: 27.2A (136%), 3.33V 5VSB: 4.6A (184%), 4.993V|
|OTP||✓ (100°C @ 12V heat sink)|
|SCP||12V: ✓ 5V: ✓ 3.3V: ✓ 5VSB: ✓ -12V: ✓|
|SIP||Surge: MOV Inrush: NTC thermistor & bypass relay|
The third 12V rail, which powers the PCIe connectors, has a higher triggering point than the other two.
Over-power protection (OPP) is set pretty high as well. Meanwhile, OTP kicks in at a lower temperature than we expected, although this didn't cause any problems during testing. The power-good signal is accurate, and there is short circuit protection on all rails.
