  • I like the Coolermaster Real 450w PSU.

    They comment on both PEAK and RMS current and the calculataions can be seen.

    No confusions at all.

    http://www.coolermaster.com/index.php?LT=english&Language_s=2&url_place=product&p_serial=RS-450-ACLY&other_title=%2BRS-450-ACLY%2BReal%20Power&PHPSESSID=d0361aa9439e046fe314d9e872f94519

    "Peak Output: The amount of current that the voltage specified can supply for a limited amount of time. Usually this is specified only for the +12 V signal; see here. Ideally, the manufacturer will specify not only the peak output current but the amount of time the supply is rated to sustain that peak. For example, the continuous maximum for +12 V may be 10 A, the peak level 14 A, and the peak level may be sustainable for 10 seconds"

    As I have been saying, if a PSU quotes PEAK current, you simply divied it be 1.41 to get the RMS value.

    14A peak / 1.41 = 10A RMS  :-P)
    1.41 is the square root of 2.

    Good post   :-))

    The link really provides very solid info and I regret not copying and pasting the contents here.

  • It's the text that's worth reading . And since the site is down you may read it all in google cache (better than 404 ).
