Testing Methods

I will test Idle (Nothing Running) and Load (Using Maximum Programs to use 100% of System Recourses). I record voltages by using software, Asus Probe, and a digital multi-meter plugged into a Molex connector to confirm the validity of the tests. I will be comparing the Iceberg to an older Ultra X-Connect 500w.

Decent rails under load with little fluctuation, unlike the Ultra.  It stabilized my overclocks under heavy load as well.  My entire system ran under heavy load without failing like it did with my previous Ultra PSU!
