Testing the PRO650W:

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 and 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.

The PRO650W produced a decent set of results in this section. The 3V3 and 5V0 rails dropped a little below their optimum levels but still, like the other rails, remained well within the limits set down by the ATX12V V2.2 specification. No problems here so let's move on.
