Performance PSU Group Test

A few weeks ago an email popped into our inbox from Cooler Master'sEuropean HQ at Venlo in the Netherlands asking if we would like to go andhave a look around their facility, and also offering us the use of theirvery extensively (and expensively!) equipped PSU Test Lab. It was suggestedthat whilst there we might also like to take a look at their brand new rangeof PSU's – the Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold Series which were officiallyannounced only a few days ago on the 1st June!Power Supplies are difficult things to test. We at Vortez Hardware have doneseveral reviews of PSU's and have a certain amount of equipment available tous for this very purpose, but to really fully test a PSU needs literallythousands of pounds worth of bench testing equipment – basically a permanentlab set-up dedicated to this one task, and that is something that few reviewsites can boast. So this opportunity to go and get acquainted with some ofthe best testing equipment currently available today was heaven sent!
