Was the PSU supposed to do that?

Subject: Systems | April 5, 2006 - 06:33 PM |

The Guru of 3D seems to have perfected the PSU torture test on an unsuspecting Silverstone Strider 600W PSU.  When they found that they could overload the PSU to the point where it screamed and "tried forcing an unexpected reboot", they tore the poor thing apart to figure out exactly what happened.  Not only do you get a review, but an explanation of how to share the load between rails on a PSU.

"Today Guru of 3D takes a peek at the SilverStone 600 Watts Quad 12 Voltsd rails based ST60F

Strider power supply. A completely modular design PSU and SLI ready power supply. You will notice

that all supplied connectors are nicely wrapped in a black colored foil/plastic and are

detachable. That is looking good for sure. It's advanced cable management that facilitates the

installation and gives you the option to only use the required cables. It carries the label

"Strider" and this model comes with a fantastic 600 Watts rating. It's supposed to be a a

high-end PSU, which is ready for SLI and Crossfire as it has quad 12 volts rails and active PFC,

and a silent fan."
