Introduction to the Thermaltake Dr. Power II PSU Tester
There are a couple things that I think should be in any PC tool box or if you don’t own a PC tool box but still call yourself a PC tech, these items will definitely make things easy on you. Items like SATA/IDE to USB adapters, extra rams of different types of ram and a old PCI video card (just because you don’t know how old of a system you will be working on next) and the item we will spend the next few minute discussing and that would be a PSU tester.
I am sure many of you that frequent friends and family members PC station, the first thing you hear when the PC fails to boot is “I think the power supply is dead”. This may or may not be the case but in order to confirm this is to give the PSU a quick test to see if all the rails are working properly. Several companies have sent their version of this particular type of product to our lab. Today, we will be taking a look at the latest Dr Power II from Thermaltake. The Dr Power II has an over-sized display and able to measure idle rails voltage with pretty good accuracy.
