    Beta tester needed....

    I have an extra home built ATX supply that I would like someone to test on a higher power system, PIII or P4 standard ATX. I have built another supply, in my custom case, and no longer need this one . The recipient would need to meet the following requirements:

    1. You'll need a scrap ATX board and hard drive to test the supply after shipping to make sure it survives.
    2. You'll need a PIII (933 MHz or higher) or P4 standard ATX Motherboard system to test the supply.
    3. An understanding of your systems power requirements, and a way to measure the input current under load to get a rough idea of efficiency.
    4. A promise to report back here with the results, good or bad.
    5. Must be located in the U.S.

    I will cover the shipping costs, and the supply will be yours to keep. As this is an untested non U/L listed device, the recipient will asume all risks and liabilies that arrise from any problems that might be incured as a result of using the supply. Please send an email to walt@safossils.com if you are interested.

    Best Regards,
    Walt

    P.S. The supply has a couple of issues:
    1. The magnetics are audibly noisy (the voltage outputs are clean) so this will be better as a Trunk mounted system.
    2. The supply has no shut down controller and is hard on/hard off only.

    I'll do it. But I'll probably need a bit of time to figure out #3.

    Great, PM me with your shipping address, and I'll get it out to you. If you could provide some info on what you'll be powering with it, that would be helpful too.

    Best,
    Walt

    If you want another tester, or he backs out I'll do it on a few systems... Athlon, P4, etc...

    I'll have to recsend my offer due to the fact that I did some more testing with load resistors and fried the 12 Volt section. Appearently it's not as robust as I thought. It burnt up with a 5 0hm load after about 10 minutes. I do appreciate the offers though. I guess this will only work with boards that draw minimal 12 Volt current.

    Thanks
    Walt
