Antec NeoPower 650 Review



Voltage measurements are taken with a digital multimeter with the probes inserted into an unused 4-pin molex connector for the 12V and 5V lines. For the 3.3V line, the probes are inserted into the appropriate pins on the 24-pin connector. The system is allowed to idle at the desktop with only system tray programs running and the results are recorded over 5 minutes in 30 second intervals and the average result recorded. For load readings, Stressprime 2004 Orthos Edition is run to hit the CPU and memory, HDTune for the hard drive, and 3DMark06 will stress the GPU. The same methodology is used for recording voltages. Temperatures are measured with a digital thermometer with the probe inserted into the case of the power supply to measure temps at idle and load.
