The OCP levels on every rail except for +12V are at their usual high levels. On the other hand, over-power protection is configured on the low side, mostly because of this PSU's already-monstrous capacity. Over-temperature protection is supported, and again, we noticed that the power-good signal is inaccurate (it drops after the rails go out of spec).

This is the season to be mining. Its winter and those that do mine should be doing so to keep the house warm during peak winter season if not to earn extra cash to go under the tree then to at least help lower their heating bill. -evil grin- actually im trying to promote people to buy more graphics cards because when all this fake coin crashes it will be raining graphics cards cheap everywhere!Reply
Yeah, when it crashes - who knows, maybe it only crashes in 10 years, maybe it wont? Dont be so cynicalReply
