No PSU test should be done without at least being hooked up to a test system. Make sure everything is connected before we do the power on test.
Test system specs are: EPoX nForce 4+ mother board, 1 gig of RAM, AMD 64Bit 4000+ processor, Gforce 7900GS video card, Mad Dog DVD Burner, 160gig sata drive (primary), 500gig sata2 drive (storage), and Logisys Clear PSU 550w, in a NZXT Hush case.
Green UV wires are hard to hide from view, but with some quick cable management you can get them out of the way.
Now testing the lines, 5V read a constant 5.15v.
12v line was not as stable as the 5v, for about 10-15 seconds it would read 12.07v.
Then for about 2-3 it would jump to 12.08v
The Logisys 550W PSU can handle some everyday systems, and it is able to add a little to the lighting and glow of a case. With the 12v rails not being stable, it can cause some concern for being able to handle high loads. The small heat sink can also be a concern as things with just an idle load are not 100% stable. It was nice that it came with sleeved cables, but I would have rather seen blue than green. There's also only one power line for PCI-E video cards.
Like to thank Xoxide.com for sending over this sample!
