No, not THAT willy.

This one:
http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/article.asp?SCID=19&CIID=107260

There have been some new powersupplies released since testing, and there are plenty of powersupplies that we recommend (and a multitude of cheap ones that people seem to think will be a good idea) over in the tech forum that are dying for a test.

For example:

-Antec EarthWatts 500/430/380
-iCute Powersupplies, doesn't matter what rating they are, they all equal about 200W of usable power
-Super Flower, such as the ones that MSY sell. They are apparently rebadged Enermax PSUs, are they comparable quality-wise?
-Zalman's "Silent" range, are they actually quiet?

Obviously Big Willy will have to be scaled back to Medium Willy;


---BEGIN SPOILER
or Hollingworth-sized (:P)
---END SPOILER


And also - noise measurements while idle and under load.


I'm probably just dreaming though, 'cos that would be quite an interesting article :)

You mean instead of the usual crappy articles we get around here! :P

But I think Big Willy should become a benchmark for PSU's, and Atomic should continue to test more power supplies on Big Willy!

I also think that we shouldn't downsize Big Willy, just so Frunj can feel better about himself! :P

They did one, about 1.5 years ago:

Guess what guys? over the past few weeks I've been organising a mass shipment of hardware to make Big Willy a permanent fixture in the labs.

And it's not going to be any smaller than before. If anything we're going to be adding inches... er... current draw... to Big Willy.

Sounds tasty. Cheers ^Faldo^

One thing, why aren't there PSUs in the KitLog?

Awesome, what I like to hear :)

<fantasy>
Variable current machines like Johnny Guru uses....*drool*
</fantasy>

It is really the only thing that makes sense for a mass shipment, considering that they already have the HDDs. Unless they're going for all Raptors (not Velociraptors, those use less power :D).

Will the Willy be making an appearance in the next issue, or later? I'm not sure that I can wait that long :P

Well, it isn't going to be in issue 90 because that issue has gone to the printers and will be out on Wednesday.

Seeing as I'm off to the US to cover some things and enjoy a few weeks of hard eared time off on Monday, Big Willy's second coming won't be in issue 91 because I'm responsible for it and I won't be here during the production month.

So it looks like issue 92 right now. But I might just pit a PSU up against Big Willy before then and tell you about it on the website.
