MultiWave 300 Watt Power Supply
Page 2 - Results and Conclusion
Well, since this unit had an overall positive effect on my system. I thought I might throw
in the only bad thing. The bad thing being that I have a small case so now I have LOTS of long
wires dangling all over the inside of my case. I did my best to bundle them and get them out
of the way, but it was to little avail.
That being my only rant, let me move on. Believe it or not, your power supply has a lot to do
with your cooling, a lot more than some of you blow hole cutters think. This PSU has larger slots
on the bottom (where it draws air from inside the case). Also, it has a more powerful which
is quiter and draws more air than old generic one. In fact, this unit it is supposed
to have some kind of silencing to it because it's listed on the PSU its self that it is
equipped with silencing.
Ok, now for some results. The ambient temperature in the room was exactly the same when these
two temperature readings were took and were run right after playing Half-Life, running Prime95,
and the Dcypher.net Gamma Flux block generator (that's what I call 100% CPU usage).

Voodoo3 3000 AGP
Quantum Fireball CR (5400 RPMs not exactly roasting)
Pioneer 10x DVD Player
Asus 50x Max CD-ROM Drive
Win98 SE - meaing 1 CPU in use, idle cpu still produces heat
That's pretty darn good results if you ask me. Personally, I didn't really expect more than
one degree difference in the system temp. Well, now comes the conclusion. I think I'll break
this one down.
Not the best but pretty good.
Damn good value for such good performance, $49 isn't going to break the bank
Don't want to hurt the score to bad
If someone has a PSU with software, send it to me. I want to see it.
