Default Exploding PSU Warning: Corsair Lab Fun

Stop me if you PSU gurus have heard this one before. A couple of our guys were doing some load testing one day on some PSUs and had some fun with some "inexpensive" low end units.

The unit was rated at +3.3V@28A,+5V@34A,+12V@21A

We tested it with the 12V at 18A, the 3.3V at 20A, and the 5V at 10A on our load testers.

Check out the video clip, Why a high-quality PSU is an essential purchase.

It did hit Redbeard in the eye but it's the one with the eye patch so no harm done.

Damn, I wish I was at the house right now instead of on the rig where our internet connection is too slow to watch movies such as this. I can't wait to get in so I can look at it.
