Protection Features and DC Power Sequencing
|OCP||12V: 63.8A (117.78%), 12.039V 5V: 31.1A (155.5%), 5.037V 3.3V: 30.2A (151%), 3.323V 5VSB: 4.2A (168%), 4.978V|
|OTP||✓ (160°C @ 12V heat sink)|
|SCP||12V: ✓ 5V: ✓ 3.3V: ✓ 5VSB: ✓ -12V: ✓|
|PWR_OK||Accurate (but less than 16ms)|
|SIP||Surge: MOV Inrush: NTC thermistor & bypass relay|
OCP on the +12V rail is set properly, while the minor rails have high OCP triggering points. Over-power protection is configured conservatively at 120.2%. We prefer this to an unrealistically high OPP setting.
Over-temperature protection works properly, and we confirmed that short circuit protection operates as-expected on every rail. The power-good signal is accurate, but it's far too low at ~10ms. According to the ATX specification, this should be at least 16ms.
DC Power Sequencing
According to Intel’s most recent Power Supply Design Guide (revision 1.4) the +12V and 5V voltages must be equal or greater than the 3.3V rail’s output at all times.
For our first measurement, we turn the PSU off and switch it back on without load on any of its rails. In the second test, we set the PSU to standby mode, dial in a full load, and start the PSU. In the last test, with the PSU switched off, we dial in a full load before restoring power.
Everything goes smoothly in these tests; the 3.3V rail is lower than the +12V and 5V rails at all times.
