680W is a forbidden number in PSUs.

It's not just bad. It's bad.

So I take it those lines aren't a good sign?


You want it to look just a *touch* more along these lines:

So yeah, I'd say that's bad. Like, unheard of bad. I've seriously never seen a PSU with ripple that bad.


I'd like to point out that the peak to peak in the bad PSU tests are both over 200mv just for the green line, whereas the linked seasonic chart is a total of 160mv for the entire chart, with the green line taking less than 40mv of that.
So we have 30mv vs 300mv.(over 120 is out of spec)

I dunno a PSU is just something you don't cheap out on. Plenty of decent low cost PSU's out there that don't cost a fortune and won't end with your house being burned to the ground. That EVGA 500b comes to mind and on sale i've seen it as low as a measly 30 bucks.
