Testing Methodology / Testing Corsair HX620W




Above is a Corsair HX620W with the modular interface removed and sitting outside of the power supply housing. I did this so I could have easy access to the connectors and solder points with my DMM.

Below you can see the DMM probes shoved into the PCI-e connector. The power supply is idle now, so we're seeing 12.30V.
