PSUs are the unsung heros of just about every PC, after all, they don’t have the most glamorous job! They don’t improve your FPS, they won’t make your PC more responsive nor will they allow your components to run faster- they do the very simple job of giving power.
Although the job of a PSU seems simple enough, but the way it carries out it’s job even more important as the way a GPU produces a video output.
If a PSU isn’t up to the job, it can have literally explosive consequences. Not only is there the issue of poor quality units going bang, but when your computer stops working properly, no POST error code, it causes a huge headache when it comes to fault finding. PSUs are notoriously difficult to test, even if you get the PSU up and running you don’ t know if it distributing power properly or within a safe voltage range.
