How to Bench test a RM850X PSU before installing

Recommended Posts

Got a new RM850X PSU and want to bench Test it before installing it in my new build.

Will the paper clip test work on this PSU? IF so, Do I need any other cables connected to the PSU, other than the 24 pin cable?

Yes, the paper clip test will work. You may need something that will draw some power when it does start. Don't expect to see the fan spin at all.

But the paper clip test isn't really a 'bench test' of a PSU.
