Re: Troubleshooting a PSU

Power supply testers will tell you if the PS is broken outright, but won't tell you anything about how it might behave under load.

To troubleshoot a PS under load, one needs a voltmeter (suitable ones can be had under $10) with proper probes, and/or some straightened paper clips for connection. Measuring voltage should uncover the majority of likely problems.

To measure noise, one would need either a scope, or perhaps a sensitive AC voltmeter.
