Nice transient graphs!
I wanted to give you some positive feedback -- I haven't seen transient voltage/power graphs in a PSU review before (not saying you're the first, but the first I've seen), I think it's a good idea!
One question: are you using some external voltage measuring means or the computer's built in monitoring capability? Have you calibrated the method you are using against a known accurate method?
One suggestion: Run the tests you just did, then add static loads in the appropriate amounts to bring each major voltage level (+3.3, +5, +12) to near their rated amperage limits. Re-run the tests and see if it still meets the manufacturer's specs. While the system you used draws more power than most already, this would add another level of difficulty.
