    Nosfer@tu has sent me a NorthQ Giant Reactor 1000 WATT PSU, and I will do a review of it. I have the rig to do some real life load testing on it. So here we go.

    The load messured on the hole of the PSU is between 425-720W, during my benching.

    Measured 12 Volt, it is stable as a rock. Between 12,05-12,07 Volt Very impressive

    And 5V line here, Between 5,11-5,14Volt

    as you se I have a tangmeter (is that the english word ? ) but you need to seperate each different volt line, 3.3, 5.5 and 12 volt lines before you can use it. And that would be QUITE a task. So I dident find the use for it this time

    It is a very power full PSU. Cable length is long enough for a tower cabinet. And noise….. I didn’t hear it. The price is about 165€. I think it´s a Really good buy for people who have a power full system, but dont want to pay 200+ Euro
