Gigabyte, This is How a PSU is Supposed to Work (EVGA 750 GT SuperNova)
This video shows how a power supply is supposed to respond when you push it past the power limits. The Gigabyte PSU explodes, but this EVGA 750 GT SuperNova probably won't.Sponsor: Get 10% off Squarespace purchases (https://geni.us/BqEpf)For context, watch our speedrun of a Gigabyte PSU failing this same test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JmPUr-BeEMWatch another PSU working properly in this video (Dell OEM PSU): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7hNmuizMB8This video answers a commonly requested topic from our GBT speedrun: "Can you show a power supply that works properly?" Well, here it is. This is how a power supply's OPP is supposed to work. And again, as a reminder, we believe there is clearly more wrong with Gigabyte's power supply than just OPP -- that just happens to be an easy way to demonstrate one of its many design flaws. We could run these all day on the 750 GT, but given that there's no clear end in sight when something works properly, we cut it off at about 30 minutes.The best way to support our work is through our store: https://store.gamersnexus.net/
