Seriously a great read and very informative.
awesome article I look forward to reading it
Great reading. Thanks.
Awesome article... Very in depth and informative... Thank you
Very informative article. Now I know some more things to look for in choosing the "perfect" power-supply (whenever I actually have enough money to buy more stuff to need a new PSU for lol)
BTW, I noticed some errors/typos on page 4:
-The APFC subheading has different opening/closing tags ([/heading]
-Second to last paragraph mentions PWM as "pulse mode modulation" but I think it's supposed to be "pulse width modulation"
-Last paragraph has one instance of "MOFETs" instead of "MOSFETs"
Thanks for pointing them. All fixed
great, this was badly needed
Just finished reading, that was an excellent job
i'm still reading it, most of it goes over my head.
that said, its still an excellent reference source when i want to look up one part of a PSU. already found some interesting information in there
i've ran into some weird PSU's that only powered on from cold boots, but ran stable when they did. from your information i can assume that something was up with that thermistor bypass relay.
if you hear a clicking sound when the PSU starts then it's this relay. Almost all hi-end PSUs like Seasonic X series, Antec HCP etc. have one.
honestly never heard that before, but i havent listened for it either.
this was awesome
I feel more informed about modern power supply units than I did when my professor taught it. Thank you.
Thank you. Thank you again thank you. Super article, just what I needed. I understood this better than my swedish electronic books.
thanks for it................
how2 hook a car-amp @home?
Really interesting article.
I have a question, what kind of PC PSU is the best for using with a car-audio amplifier @home? Well, I need ~70 amps in 12volts...
Thank you for your answers!
you just answered your own question. if you need 70A, buy one with 70A on the 12V rail.
I think a dedicated 12v supply would be a better option.
Mean Well probably makes something that will fit your needs.
Great article ..thanks for sharing....
imho you are one of the best psu reviewers out there, keep up the good work
