Ever considered how your computer components work? Like, really work? I love that sort of stuff, and the fine folks at Techspot have a new series investigating how the insides of your rig works. They started with motherboards early this year, and then jumped over to power supplies.
PSUs, as simple as they are, have plenty of tiny parts combined to make the physics of electricity work for your machine. Understanding how they switch from AC to DC and back again, as well as send power to all of your components, is actually very cool. And it’s a good read too.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the series, and we’ll be reviewing how some of your computer’s high-end parts run as well in a series that’s coming soon. PSUs are fairly dumb components except for high-end models, so if you enjoy reading about the physics of electronics, this read is for you.
