Belgian hardware enthusiast Reviews 105 power supplies

What is the difference between a normal hardware enthusiast and a true one? A real one is known to break world records with the help of liquid nitrogen, has a ton of spare cash to blow, and now, has enough spare time to thoroughly review 105 individual power supplies. Stephane Charpentier is the man who is responsible for that little 105 power supply review. And by little, I mean 140 pages. His work should seriously be published like a very nerdy version of Kelly Blue Book breaks records for being the longest hardware round-up ever. If you're bored out of your mind, need a new power supply, or want to appreciate Mr.Charpentier's effort, please read his 140 page review.

The article is in French, so you might want to run the individual pages through Google translator.Source: Reg Hardware

your right but whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy did he lealve out pc power and cooling

he didnt say the combined 12V amps, just how much each rail had
and testing load on cpu isnt good enough to test how much the 12v rail drops by, when i test i do dual orthos load and use ati tool spinning 3d box thing at same time, that really drops the 12v so u know how good it is

anyone know were to buy pc power and cooling in england

i've been looking for a while, and from the looks of it you cant get them here anymore, you certainly used to be able to (alienware used them, and custom pc have reviewed them before), but from the look of their website they dont have any overseas resellers anymore
