To test the power supply, we’ll be using our usual test rig which is comprised of an Intel Core i9-14900K processor, which has a massive Turbo Boost TDP of 253W+ at full load. We’ll also be using an Asus Strix Z790-E Gaming motherboard, 32GB of DDR5-7200 ram, a Lexar NM800 2TB SSD, and a powerful GeForce RTX 4080 Super (with the 16-pin PCIE 5.0 power connector).
