    Default [FYI] OC3D PSU Certification Program

    http://www.overclock3d.net/articles/...on_programme/1

    So your next Corsair/Antec power supply will be also OC3D-certified.

    Some of the requirements here are silly. Maximum ripple requirements for the minor rails at 35mV and for the +12V rails at 60mV? He shouldn't be failing units that still remain in spec.

    Hmm, Maybe I should start up the JonnyGURU.com Certification Program????? PSU's must perform to 150% of their rated power else they fail...

    Not so much that he would be failing those units, just that they wouldn't earn the OC3D certification.

    Yeah the flaw is evident. They're actually overloading the power supply and still require the voltages/ripple to be inside ATX spec. They're actually testing the OPP.

    As for the voltage regulation part, I'm expecting a Seasonic/Enermax/SuperFlower to fail here.

    I don't see many companies sending supplies.
    They will need to purchase their own.

    I wouldn't send if I were a OEM, even if I thought I would pass. The precedent is poor. Every web site gets to make up their own testing criteria? They certainly have that right, but it is not something I would want to encourage by supplying gratis test units.

    Yeah kind of trying to figure out if they know what OCP is........

    That and a whole lot of other since I get units whose set point is routinely outside of their "requirements" which has nothing to do with the actual regulation.
