Real World Test System & Observations

The first test was to put the fire to a TITAN V and the 2990WX to gulp power from the Dagger Pro unit. As you can see, AC draw reached 510W, and after an hour of testing, we saw a max temperature of 35C, which was good to see that such a heavy load the unit stayed in the mid-30s.

The Dagger Pro cannot support any more GPUs due to limited cabling, so we had to go another direction to increase loading. With that, we started pushing the CPU to get more draw from the unit. This is why I selected the 2990WX as a suitable load during real-world PSU testing as it is one of the hungriest CPUs we have had to date.

Turning the wick up a bit, we got the AC draw to reach 775W. This was the limit of what we could draw effectively for sustained loading, and the Dagger Pro sustained this load admirably, only reaching 40C after over an hour of loading.
