We’ll start out saying we aren’t equipped to do extremely detailed electrical analysis required to pick apart a modern power supply. It takes laboratory-grade dedicated equipment so we’ll have to make do with some less precise testing. While we normally use a good Fluke Digital Multi-meter, we’ve found the onboard monitoring solutions in modern motherboards to be quite accurate and able to be easily logged with utilities like HWiNFO. This is especially true of higher-end enthusiast-class boards that are oriented towards overclocking. We start monitoring and run a series of benchmarks and stress tests to ramp the system up and down from idle to full load of every component.
Fractal’s Ion+ 2 Platinum provides excellent regulation on all three main rails with each staying well within 1.3%. The all-important 12V rail runs about a tenth of a volt hot which is perfectly fine and only deviates +/- 0.2% of that. None of the rails ever sag below their nominal value while testing.
