    EVGA SuperNOVA P2 Voltages

    My father rebuilt his computer, swapping an 11 year old Antec TruPower for a brand new EVGA SuperNOVA 650 P2. Looking at his voltages they seem very off. +3.3V is 3.264V +5V is 4.84V +12V is 11.654V For a platinum power supply, this seems pretty sloppy. What do you guys think? For...

    Cooling Scythe 3.5" Fan Controller Mosfets

    I'd like some advice on proper heatsink for these mosfets. Should I mount, with screw and nut, the heatsink to the metal tab on the backside? Or should the heatsink be on the black plastic side? Do I need insulating mica if I mount to the metal tab side? Is the metal tab a drain? I was going...
