What does it mean when ripple on a rail spikes at less than max load, then seemingly returns to "normal" levels again?

I'd say it'd be nice as a door stop, but the door would probably crumple it.

Great numbers for an SFX unit, seems they're trying to position those as the ones to beat.

I just hate it when my ripple goes out of spec when I bring my gaming rig up on the mountain top in the middle of the harsh Norwegian winter.

What brand and model of case are you using? It's remotely possible there's some connection (some kinda short or grounding problem), but it could also be a complete coincidence.

Wow, that was kinda craptastic. When I see the BeQuiet name I usually expect something good, but this was a cold shower to say the least.

Oh, at least here in Scandinavia we do have rebates, but they are only instant, as MIRs like you have are not allowed here. I bought my current PSU on a 20% instant rebate. In fact, my whole new...

Hmm, they're getting back in the game. I remember their Odin series from a while back, quite a few people around here bought those.

Meh. That was massively underwhelming. Did they sit around the table and say "Hey, let's put a PSU out on the market again for gits and shiggles. Never mind if it's good".

Edit: Oh, saw you...

Mmh, still considering the RM550x or 650x for my next build. I realize the factory staff could just have had an off day.

Then it's most likely wrong. As mentioned, use a DMM. But still, the voltages are never 100% stable. When you put a load on a rail, it will always change. For 12V, there is a 5% variation...

If the lower wattage units do as well as this one, I might look into it for my planned Skylake build.

They've had off days before. They did a unit for NZXT which didn't review well at all. (I forget the exact model tho). Also, the Antec Truepower Trio failed Jonny's hotbox at the crossload test.

Well, FWIW, my HX750 is CWT and has served me faithfully for a whole 5 years and 8 months. So even if it's the only CWT PSU that I ever owned, I can't say that I'm not impressed with them.

I know. I's funny, because a long time ago I had an OCZ ModXStream 600W, and it whined like there was no tomorrow. So I guess it's a hit and miss no matter what the brand is.

A digital multimeter (DMM) is usually the best of the simpler ways to measure voltages. If you can borrow one, or even just buy one (they are dirt cheap), it can tell you stuff with more certainty.

The 500W version should have Teapos in it. At least if you go by the TPU review. It's the 600W one that has Su'scon crapacitors. But it sounds like it's on the fritz anyway.

I'm gonna say it's Delta, because the specs look like a Chieftec PSU I had once and that one was had the "GPS" designation and was made by them.
