Custom PC (November 2005) has done some extensive tests on some of the most popular PSU's on the market today.

And their findings are an eye opener!!

With some of the PSU's blowing up when drawing hear their maximum rated wattage!!! :eek:
 
31 tested, 15 failed, 9 blew up!
 
Hi

What PSU's passed and come out smelling of roses?

Many thanks

Off the top of my head the Seasonic and Tagan got good reviews, with PC Power also getting good reviews, but they are exepensive!
 
Hi

Since I'm on the market for a modular, silent, powerfull (and stable) PSU I'd better get the mag

Thanks for the heads up

Yeah, its a good read, with descriptions of all the tests they ran. Only glanced at it so far, but tons of info in it, with them performing 1030 tests on the 31 PSU's!
 
Hi

Looks like I'll have to be patient for a day apparently it's not in the shops until tomorrow (I guess you subscribe)

Many thanks

I do :) It's quite a good read.
 
Tomshardware did a simialr thing not so long ago which might also be worth a look.
