Again - mr. Administrator - how can 130mV ripple be acceptable if it is only 120mV defined in/by the standard?
I think you're letting them slide... :-)

EDIT: perhaps these new-fangled ("solid") condensers on motherboards can take more dusty DC so-to-speak but again - they don't call it DC for nothing.

Hello,

The ripple above 120 mV only occurs with the unit delivering 750 W. If you read our conclusions closely you will see that we say that this unit is only recommended for people that aren't going to pull anywhere close to 750 W (99% of the users or more).

Cheers,
Gabriel Torres

Hi, I want ask about schematic, photo or service manual to power supply Thermaltake Toughpower 750W cable management.
It burned me a few SMD transistors in high voltage part of the power supply, 1 SMD rezistor and 1 foil capacitor ... I probably replace the zener diodes ...

There are no schematics or service manual available for any PC power supply nowadays. They are built to be disposable parts, since it is cheaper to replace them than trying to repair them.
