Custom made DC Active dummy load PSU tester.
To test the PSU on my Active load test, I have manually increased the load in Amps on 12v first rail, 12v second rail, 5v and 3.3v rail to simulate 100%, 80% 50% and 20% load. Since this PSU is having only single 12v rail, so divided the load in half on both 12v loads on my tester.
5V stand-by and -12V supply was left at a constant 0.5amp load throughout the test run.
Maximum theoretical load handling capacity of my tester is somewhat around 1500W, but due to MOSFETs safe operating area (SOA) characteristics and thermal load handling capacity of the heatsinks, this tester can handle Max 1300W.. For safety reasons I have also installed a thermal controller which turn OFF the attached PSU if temperature exceeds SOA specifications.
During test the PSU ran smoothly up to 805W of load, when tried to pull more the PSU turned itself OFF showing the proper working of Overload protection .
- High build quality
- Very quiet operation
- Semi Modular
- 5 years warranty
- Full Black Cables
- 80 Plus Bronze
Cooler Master MASTERWATT 750 PSU is a real good PSU in the segment with superb build quality, good voltage stability and 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency. PSU fan do not spins in normal day to day PC work and was very quite at benchmarking and gaming load. Fan with Active Load tester, was little noticeable under full load too. PSU turned itself off with OCP when tried to pull over 805 watts showing PSU is having all the protections active and working great.
Finally with Semi modular design, Semi fan-less operations and a 5 year warranty Cooler Master MASTERWATT 750 is best option for gamers and midrange pc builder and worthy of our PC TeK Reviews Value Award.
