Protection Features, Evaluated
Check out our PSUs 101 article to learn more about PSU protection features.
Our protection features evaluation methodology is described in detail here.
|OCP||12V: - 5V: 32.5 A (130%) 3.3V: 32 A (128%) 5VSB: 5.8 A (193.3%), 78.48 mV Ripple|
|OPP||762.51 W (117.3%)|
|OTP||Yes (125°C @ Secondary Side)|
|SCP||12V: Yes 5V: Yes 3.3V: Yes 5VSB: Yes -12V: Yes|
|SIP||Surge: MOV Inrush: NTC Thermistor & Diode|
Over-current protection on the minor rails seems to be properly configured, while at 5VSB it should be set at a lower level to prevent ripple from getting out of control. The over-power protection's triggering point is set at a reasonable level, while OTP is configured quite high. Finally, there is SCP on all rails, the power-good signal operates properly, and besides surge protection there is also protection against large inrush currents. It would be ideal if there was a bypass relay as well, but we're probably asking for too much from a Bronze-rated PSU.
