Spikes/Surges are inrush current which can occur from voltage dips and brownouts, blackouts. Solution is the BBU/UPS.They did. games.
Furmark used *less* since it doesnt surge, it's a constant sustained load
That 12VO test showing the reduced consumption at low load/idle sitatuations really is a game changer, now i dont wanna buy a new PSU til they're more readily available
I'd only replace it if there is a problem.No, I just don't have time to waste on LTT, that's the honest truth.
Other sources I may consider, and as you have provided, I will look into it. Stand by.
EDIT: Ok, that certainly is interesting. My immediate question is simple: Why? Because from a electrical stand point this makes zero sense. Are the mobos conversion electronics far lower wattage than the PSUs? That might make sense.
My evga SuperNova T2 is nearly 8 years old now, hard to believe. I will probably replace it with something when all this PSU standards dust settles.
