Testing:

For more information on how we test our power supplies, please browse our testing methodology.

 

Short Circuit Protection:

I short circuited the 3V3, 5V0 and the 12V rail(s) 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:

 

For the purposes of showing the results I have treated the 12V1 and 12V2 rails as a single rail. The measured voltage of both rails was virtually identical and the 12V load split approximately 50/50 across 12V1 and 12V2.

 

Mains Input Voltage 110VAC

The Thermaltake Toughpower 1350W power supply produced an excellent set of results in this section. The power supplies ability to maintain the major rails at a more or less constant voltage from zero to full load is particularly impressive. No problems here, so let's move on.
