And the Thermaltake Dr. Power is one of the better ones available. What makes it one of the better ones? First of all, it reads each of the rails on each connection from the PSU. Not just telling you the rail is bad using colored lights. And many PSU testers are notorious for just telling there is power to the rails whether they are low or high. The Dr. Power II will also test for stability on the different rails and alarm you of this<More>

• Universal ATX PSU tester will work with most all PC PSUs
• Quick and easy to use
• Large LCD displays five voltages and PG timing
• Allows testing different PSU cables (CPU, PCI-E, Molex, SATA)
• Includes both Manual and Automatic test modes
• Visual and audible alarm highlights problems
I have used many testers in the past and most of them are either a green LED for good or a red LED for bad. Which is great for a fast test but if you want to know what the actually voltage being put out by the PSU and you do not have or know how to use an expensive voltage multimeter then the Thermaltake Dr.Power II is for you.
