Well, folks… I do see enough of a power on squiggle on those 12V tests to take away half of the S&C point here today. This unit’s not bad at all, but this isn’t quite smooth enough to pass muster with me. I will let the standby rail slide, though… there is a teeny spike, but not enough to matter much.

Time to heat things up.

Nothing like a little heat to get a fan moving, huh? By full power, that little guy was running over a thousand RPM, and likely making some noise. How much? Again, don’t know.

The voltage numbers got a little more interesting this time out. Regulation got better on two rails, worse on the other two. The good news is, the 12V is now running at an even more impressive 0.08%. The standby rail improves too, to 2.78%. It’s the minor rails that slide, here, at 2.88% and 1.26%.

So the average today for scoring would be 1.41%. Excellent. Just barely. It’s on the low side of that bracket.

And once again we have a clear Platinum pass for efficiency, so we’ll move on to the scope shots and see where ripple’s at.

Looks like we’ve got 22mV, 21mV and 32mV for the 3.3V, 5V, and 12V rails here today. We’ll take that… all three numbers are excellent, but just pretty much at the 25mV line I need to see for that.

It wouldn’t take a lot more ripple to see the 12V going out of bounds. Fortunately, that didn’t happen.

Next page. Let’s take this apart.
