    I believe he's in here.


    Bearing in mind that these results are a combination of all four rails attached via both modular and hard-wired connectors
    I don't know what this means.

    the result of 92mV during test 4 is quite worrying to say the least.
    If it's measured correctly then this is more than worrying since Vmax=92.0mV and Vmin=-82.0mV results in a peak-to-peak value of 92+82=174mV which exceeds ATX spec by 45%!
    As for the minor rails, in Test3, they're not "well within spec" but rather at the 50mV Vp-p limit.

    I'm pretty sure it means he bridged all four rails together because he only has the capability to test one or two at a time.

    He has an SM-268, so he can only test two +12V rails. One via the 24-pin and one via the 8-pin CPU power connector.

    Paul where are you? It looks like OW's samples were not duds, that's the ripple on EX series.

    jonny what's happens here? After tweaktown and guru3D reviews I was in heaven but after OW and OC3D I'm in hell now.

    Back logged from getting the SM-8800 repaired when I lost 14 mosfet's testing a unit. I have my unit on the load tester currently.
