Test Results

Our load tests utilize a couple of FAST ATE active load testers and a variety of other equipment such as an oscilloscope, power conditioner, temperature probe and a power consumption meter. You can read more about our standard testing approach here.

The tests performed are based around six conceivable setups that are out there and progressively load down the PSU up to the power supply's limits or 1000W, whichever comes first. Since our test equipment's limits are greater than the SCC-750AF, we can test it to the maximum.

Sparkle Computer's SCC-750AF performs well within ATX specifications. Voltage regulation certainly isn't the most spectacular that we have seen, but nothing ever went out of spec. Ripple on the 12V rails was also good, showing a maximum of 49mV peak to peak under full load. The SCC-750AF proves that it is deserving of its 80Plus Gold rating as efficiency values are right where they should be for a Gold rated power supply.

Final Thoughts

Sparkle Computer's SCC-750AF power supply is a solid unit at the price of only $129.99. Voltage regulation could be better all the way around, but values are still within ATX specifications. The number of cables and connectors available are more than ample for those looking to fully load down the unit.

The SCC-750AF could also beef up the build quality a little with some higher quality capacitors. Even with that being said, it is still worth considering for purchase if you are looking for a 750W power supply and are on a budget.
