Over Power Protection and Max Wattage
Power supplies often quote as having various protection mechanisms such and the most important of these is Over Power Protection. In our testing we crank up the power draw until the power supply either shuts down (meaning the OPP mechanism is present and working) or blows up (meaning it is either not present or not working). We then note the maximum power consumption before the power supply shut down (or blew up).
The DQ750 just kept on going when we ran our OPP test, a staggering 1310W was delivered before the OPP mechanism triggered. This is an interesting result and makes me wonder if we’ll see Deepcool use the same platform as this to provide higher wattage models with only a few minor tweaks.
