: When a PC doesn’t start, or a component isn’t behaving itself correctly, my first port of call is to test the Power Supply Unit. The Coolmax PS-228 PSU tester has saved me literally hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of diagnostic time that would otherwise have been spent tearing my hair out. Not only does the Coolmax PS-228 allow me to test the motherboard supply (20 and 24 pin) but it also all lets me test 4-pin Molex supply, 6/8 pin PCIe supply, 4/8 pin CPU supply, 15-pin SATA supply and finally floppy disk supply -- handy when you’re working on an ancient system!
