Electrical Safety:

 

Electrical Safety Test Class 1
Manufacturer/Model
Pass/Fail
Thermaltake Toughpower QFan 650W
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:

 

Testing @ 110VAC

 

 

110VAC - Total Load at 174W which is 27% of Rated Maximum Output Power.
