I'm currently planning an educational video called "Power Supply Pyros," which demonstrates the importance of buying a good power supply, and the consequences of buying cheap ones.

As proof, I am going to buy three PowMax power supplies, three old Pentium I era boards, and essentially "blow up" the power supply under three different scenerios.

Situation I: Regular short circuit

Situation II: Death by dust buildup

Situation III: Death by user neglect (Will involve glitter, confetti, and streamers)

All three power supplies will be killed by a MASSIVE short circuit, to demonstrate the effects of a defective/neglected PSU that is off-brand.

It will all be caught on video, and if you love fire, explosions, and flashbangs, then this is the video for you.

I am also planning a "Cheap Case Torture Test" video, which will involve pulleys and cement blocks.

Candidate cases for the second video include PowMax, MGE, Aspire, Linkworld, and AsiaPro.

I'm getting a job soon, so yes, this will most definitely happen.

Am I the only one who sees a true Darwinian moment in the making here?

Just curious, but how exactly do your test methods prove anything about cheap power supplies.
If you throw glitter into a PC Power & Cooling PSU, it's gonna die just the same. Quality has nothing to do with it.

Remind me to cut the ground on the plugs and add a little kerosene to the experiment.

No, I find it the same way, albeit funny all the same. I can only imagine waht the content of these videos will be.

Descent, if you actually do this, please limit your video "reviews" to one thread.

I shall limit it ;).

The video is to demonstrate the effects that a blown power supply can have on your hardware.

But at 16 pyrotechnics and destruction rule supreme.
