Test Setup- Right To It

All tests were run using a fresh install of Windows XP Professional with SP2. For our stock speed tests, we ran everything at default timings for the CPU. Our stock speed testing used Corsair DDR2 C6400C4 2 GB kit at 2.0 vDimm at DDR2 800. Timings for our overclocking were left 4-4-4-12 and 2.0v. The video card was left at default timings as well for all tests. For this review, stability was determined by running our battery of tests, plus the ability to complete a 32MB test run. For our voltage readings at default settings, we ran everything at stock speeds, and DDR settings settings of DDR800 and 4-4-4-12, at 2.0v.

Conclusion

If you want the best components available you have to pay the price. If you want to take one of the biggest hindrances to overclocking success out of the picture, you have to pay for it. So, check out this PSU right now!
