About the Author
Paul Johnson is a long time PC hobbyist and tech enthusiast having gotten his start when he broke his first C64; quickly followed by breaking his first IBM XT. They say that you learn more from your failures than you do from your successes. If that is true, much knowledge was gained from those years. Fast forward to today and, over the last 20 years, Paul has held a number of IT and electronics jobs. Most notably, for the last 12 years, he served as the Power Supply Editor for one of the truly early, groundbreaking, and INDEPENDENT PC enthusiast sites ([H]ardOCP) until its mothballing in April of 2019.
THEY SAY THAT YOU LEARN MORE FROM YOUR FAILURES THAN YOU DO FROM YOUR SUCCESSES.
With the loss of this truly iconic website, Paul, like rest of TheFPSReview.com crew, has set out to pickup from where [H]ardOCP left off. While nothing will ever be able to recreate the [H] you should expect to see much the same kind of content from Paul at TheFPSReview.com that you saw from him there. Power supplies will be exploding, things will burn, and punches won’t be pulled. Reviews you see here will contain the same kind of relative performance comparisons coupled with an overall value component blended in to give his take on each unit that passes through the test bench.
POWER SUPPLIES WILL BE EXPLODING, THINGS WILL BURN, AND PUNCHES WON’T BE PULLED.
Whether you are a long time reader of Paul’s work or brand new, a hearty welcome to you. Pull up a chair and stay a while. Today, we are going to start with something that may sound a bit familiar to those of you that are long time readers, but may not be to those that are new as we take a quick look at how power supply reviews will be done here at TheFPSReview.com. So, without further delay, let’s get started with taking a look at the power supply test setup, equipment, and methodology.
