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.
Thermaltake’s Toughpower GF1 provides very good regulation on all three main rails with each staying well within the 2% They promise. The all-important 12V rail stays within 0.8% in both directions.
