Psu testers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Is it worth getting a psu tester? I have fired boards from bad psu and this time around I was looking to get this.


Or is multimeters tester the way to go. Never used one before but that also applys to psu tester.

Thxs.

For me personally, I think everyone should have a PSU tester. Its so common for something not to work or turn on and "its the psu" lol. Peace of mind knowing it works. Ull have it for years. Well worth the 15-30$ imo

If you have a voltmeter you could just use that. There are several ones that you just plug the connector into (meaning testers).

99% of these testers are the same thing, regardless of price. They're all made by Youngyear and some other company, and they're all crap.

For an idea of Youngyear's standards of quality, look here:
