Like I said; Furmark needs more CPU cycles than the Batch Size Test. It is an important distinction to make that the Batch Size test is NOT part of the standard 3DMark06 benchmark suite. Rather, it is one of the optional tests.

You bring up excellent points though. Optimally, I would have loved to include tests with different programs and whatnot but it would have been a bit too complicated and alot of the results would have repeated themselves.

SKY, to be honest all I want from your tests is how a PSU behave in real life. For synthetic tests I have some trusty sites with SunMoon but I really want to know how it is in real loads.
It will be interesting if you can test your PSU's in a closed case because with a Nehalem OC'ed and 2 HD4870X2 things are heating up quickly and you know that some PSU's don't like heat.

I will be including temperature deltas but believe it or not, I can't fit the rig in a case.... the Boreas itself takes up so much space, it isn't even funny. I had to modify a HighspeedPC Tech Station to fit the darn thing.

Here are a few pics of the process (minus the HD 4870X2s).

Sky, how easy was it to pull the pump off the Boreas? Im re-cooling Behemoth with one as part of the loop but the Coolit pump might not be up to the task, do you think the MTEC controller will freak without a Pump attached to it? hehe.

Without a pump, the thing doesn't work.

The pump hooks up directly to the controller which means the controller itself can only output a certain amount of power to the pump. If I were you, I would ask CoolIT about it and if anything, have them plumb in the pump of your choice.
