OCCT power supply test. What does it do?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if I should try it. It gave me a warning saying its hard on it and it could possible damage it because there are no kill switches to stop it. Should I do it. What could it tell me?

I don't have money to shell on another psu if it fails a test.

It puts load on everything in your system, HDD's, GPU's, and CPU cores, basically pushes your computer to the highest power usage it will ever reach.

It will push your PSU to the maximum the components will ever use. It can kill your PSU if you have a low quality PSU, hence the warning. The earthwatts PSU's aren't exactly superb quality but since you have a HD4550 the test should be a piece of cake.

Remember if you don't have the money to replace it if you kill it, the don't mod or oc it. The PSU test isn't really necessary IMO.

Probably not blow a fuse, but it could kill the PSU if it's not up to the task.

No, only if you are maxing out the fuse with many other household devices running.

It should't blow a fuse, 650 watts is not a lot for a household circuit to handle.
