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: 35.5A (142%) 3.3V: 32.5A (130%) 5VSB: 5.5A (183.3%), 83.12mV ripple|
|OTP||Yes (secondary heat sink @ 97.5°C )|
|SCP||12V: Yes 5V: Yes 3.3V: Yes 5VSB: Yes -12V: Yes|
|SIP||Surge: MOV Inrush: NTC Thermistor & Bypass Relay|
Over-current protection at 5V is set quite high. However, ripple is within the specified range in every case. This isn't true for the 5VSB rail though, which fails to keep its ripple below 50mV at 5.5A load, as the ATX spec requires.
The over-power protection is configured properly, while OTP is present and works just fine. Finally, there is SCP on all rails, including the -12V one. Again, the power-good signal doesn't last as long as the ATX spec requires, but at least it's accurate, dropping before the rails go out of spec. This means fake data isn't provided to your motherboard, effectively protecting your components from receiving a very low voltage input.
