Does PSU quality help other component' lifespans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I've got frankly, an amazing PSU. Finally. 5v is 5v, 3.3v is 3.328v and 12v is 12.096v. Would these tight voltage deviations help let's say MB power delivery systems last a little longer (as I assume they don't have to regulate the power as much)?

Yes, but it's the other way around. Bad PSUs reduce the lifespans of other components, while good PSUs don't. 

 

How did you measure the voltages? 

Also the deviation isn't so important as much as voltage drop from low load to high load.

Using HWmonitor. Usually under load the voltage deviation gets even closer to 0%.

What other way around?

Being close to the rated voltage isn't what matters. Ripple is what matters. Medium and low quality PSUs have terrible ripple.

well seeing as a good PSU wont ripple, spike or FUCKING EXPLODE id say yah, it helps :P


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
