If I did a Kickstarter for a PSU test setup, like JonnyGURU.com's, to post reviews for Overclock.net and other sites, would you be interested in it? Would you give money? How much would you give?

This would take a minimum total of US $5,000. That's minimum. $10k would be better.




Just feeling things out.

Here's XbitLabs' homemade testing system:

It probably cost a lot less than $5,000.

Not much less, and for less accurate results and a whole lot more work.

The PSU section of OCN has been incredibly helpful in assisting me to choose a PSU, and I learnt a lot from it, so least I can do is throw in 5-20.

Heh, well it's clear that the PSU section doesn't have enough draw on its own to make something like this happen on its own. Looks like I'd need the support of the forum staff (and at least their permission, obviously), and some people to help with marketing and spreading the word. And also I think I'd need some kind of rewards for contributors, though that might be tricky given the nature of the project...

I'll have to think on it more. smile.gif
