A surprise box showed up from ThermalTake today, upon opening it I found this, a Dr. Power II Universal ATX Power Supply Tester:
Thermaltake has been around for a while and put out some very good products over the years, my first aftermarket CPU heatsink was a Thermaltake Big Typhoon, I still have it and it's still a very good heatsink! But I digress, so lets give Thermaltake a chance to talk about themselves for a bit:
Anyway, what we have here is a power supply tester. There are two sorts of PSU testers, one reads voltages of a PSU you plug into it, and is fairly cheap.
The other reads the voltages of a PSU you plug into it while putting a calibrated massive load on the PSU and measuring currant and efficiency and such, and costs quite a few thousand dollars.
While I'd absolutely love for someone to send me one of the second time, this is the first sort, also the much more practical sort for a person to buy for their own use.
With the preamble out of the way, lets head to page two and actually look at the unit itself.
