We know that testing a power supply on a loaded system is not the very best way to do so, but you can not overlook real world testing. Other sites have methods that use thousands of dollars in equipment to provide them greater detail. But we do have a trusty digital multimeter. These sites and the methods they use should be the true means of determining how good a power supply really is. We feel that showing you how it performs under real world conditions is also a valid measure of its performance.

The Ripper 1000 performed pretty well on our small test bench. The 3v and 5v rails remained well in specs throughout the testing. The 12v rail did not do to bad as well. it is only only dropped .03 volts after the load was put on the system.
