Electrical Safety:

Pass

 

Short Circuit Protection:

I short circuited the 3V3, 5V0 and all four 12V lines in turn. The power supply did shut down, and once the short was removed and the unit switched off for at least one second, resumed normal operation. Although listed here at the beginning of the testing section, I tend to leave this test until the very end, in case it doesn't quite go to plan.

 

DC Output Voltage Load Regulation:

 

Mains Input Voltage 110VAC

DC output load regulation is on the whole quite good although the -12V rail is a little lower than I would like to see, especially at low loading, but still within the limits set down by the ATX12V V2.2 specification.
