The TweakTown PSU Testing Setup

 

Power supplies are actually very difficult to test properly. Using a single PC system offers some insight, but this limited approach can be very one dimensional and may not be relevant to your particular need.

 

To offer a more complete view, the proper method for testing a power supply is to employ specialized equipment designed for this unique demand. Active load testers allow multiple programmable loads at defined amperages to scale loads in a controlled, repeatable manner. TweakTown has recently invested this industry standard testing hardware to create a reliable, relevant test suite for all our power supply reviews.
