    Outcome and Results

    What's my opinion about what the outcome will be?

    There's not much I can say here.  Given the means used to get this power supply to put out 600W, I'm certain this power supply will pass all of the tests with stable rails.  The only thing that's left to question is how high will this fly?

    Temperature under load = 29.4C. Temperature after power off =54.8C.

    Analysis of Results:

    WOW!  That's all I can say.  I mean, if you look at the price tag for this beast and then look at how this baby performed, it's hard to say anything less than "WOW!"

    All rails stayed within tolerance at all time, including during the zero load and full load tests.  At 623W, we were well above spec.  I actually got the power supply up to 631W before the overload protection kicked in.
