Does it test the PS under load? It doesn't look like it. That would be the real test. My Antec PS shows 12.1 V no load but 11.35 when running prime 95. All the other voltages drop some what (.2 to .4V) underload.

I had the same problem with a ATI 9200SE and a 9600XT. It only occured when it was overclocked to high. To solve the problem I changed the BIOS setting to 4X instead of 8X. Now I do not get the VPU when playing World of Warcraft or Doom3.

Testing speed of USB
