Default Sunmoon SM-5500

Hello everybody

Im steven and im tech reviewer on youtube. i recently got some nice stuff from amd,xfx, bequiet etc. and i think its time to invest in some load tester and other equipment.

I had a look at the Sm-5500 8 load tester, could get it for about 1800$ with shipping.

But it says only 800W rated. Even though in this strange chinese datasheet it says something like 4 +12V rails , each 350W ( Electrical power ?? ) or is it all together 350W ?

Would be really nice to hear if it works (without burning down ) for 1kw-1,2k PSUs too or maybe some cheap alternative. since the sm-5500 10load costs around 3000$

If needed i could upload the datasheet.

Big thanks,

cheers

Yes they rate the 8-Load for a 800W ATX PSU, and the 10-Load for a 1200W ATX PSU.

I run the 10 load and have no problems with the 1200W units. I've ran it over 1200W a few times with no issues. Just make sure to have proper cooling for the tester because it does put out some heat.
