Scott,

I have a quick power supply question for you: I have a Corsair 650W (First Gen) power supply that I tested with a Thermaltake Dr. Power II PSU tester. When the power supply was attached to the thermaltake Dr. Power II it did not seem to have any issues and no fatal errors (If an error is detected the screen will change from blue to red and a continous beep will sound) sounded during testing. How much stock would you put into this tester and could my PSU still be faulty eventhough the tester determined otherwise?

I previously wrote about PSU testers here and here. A PSU that tester says is "good" can most definitely still be faulty, which makes it relatively useless. Scott.
