DC Output Stability and Quality
The voltage regulation works quite well with the DA700 as we can see above. We see some larger drops with the 3.3V rail but it drops from being somewhat high to the ideal 3.30V which is better in our opinion than starting at 3.30V and ending up low. The 5V rail is nearly flat, staying in the 5.05V to 5.1V range throughout the tests - slightly high, but well within spec. The more important 12V rail, which was actually designed with four separated rails, has similar good readings and always stays just above the specified 12.00V. The fluctuations are so small that the graph shows a very thin line. As for the output quality, we can say the Silverstone DA700 has very clean results as well. All of the rails performed within specification and the 12V rail had just a little over 20mV ripple at higher loads.
