Power Supply Roundup - Six PSU's fight to the death - Coolermaster RS-350-AMSA

Today Cameron Johnson has posted a power supply roundup comparing some of the latest units from OCZ, Thermaltake, Vantec and Coolermaster. We'll check out the appearance and features of each PSU and then put them up against each other and measure the type of minimum and maximum voltages each is able to deliver with a standard system and then an overclocked system based around an Intel Pentium 4 Prescott processor.

Coolermaster RS-350-AMSA

 

We have two Coolermaster units in total for testing; we covered the top of the line, now comes the standard unit without the additional wattage meter.

 

 

Coolermaster has made this one more cost effective and simple in design. No fancy cases or special cooling on this one. The unit is the standard Steel Alloy grey with the 80mm fan at the back. This fan is always on, with no active control for slowing the fan.

 

 

Cable management like on the top of the line remains the same, as does the mount of connectors, however, the EZ-Grip system is removed and standard plugs are used.

 

Specifications

 

Coolermaster rate the RS-350-AMSA with the following:

 

+3.3v Rail: 28A

 

+5v Rail: 28A

 

+12v Rail: 15A

 

-12v Rail: 1A

 

-5v Rail: 1A

 

+5vSB Rail: 2A

 

Maximum Rated Output: 350 Watts

 

On this model there is only a single 12v rail of 15A. In all I wouldn't recommend this to a Prescott user, as about 12A would be used under overclocking conditions.
