My crappy harbor freight DMM saved my ass getting my PSU replaced under warranty. 11.1 volts under load. :lol:

I have a tester like that, problem they will not show how well it is working under load which is when they will shut down.


Yup. The testers (well, every one I've seen that's reasonably priced) don't test under load. They're a good quick check to make sure the PSU won't fry your box at startup, but other than that, they're not super useful.

Real load testers are big, bulky, and expensive.

Flip the order around so that the sticks with slower timings are first. Some boards will use the timings on the first stick they see.

AMD hasn't won a high-end computing bid in the HPC space in years. Their new "HPC APU" could turn that around...but that's still years away.
