So I just bought a 550watt GA power suplly for a new pc... I normally test any supply I install in a new system... the Pg signal is 70ms... 
 
Do you consider 70ms out of spec?

    70 ms is a bit fast, but if the power is actually good previous to that 70 ms signal, then I don't think there is anything to worry about. Are you experiencing a problem?

    I have not installed the PSU yet... I thought the ATX spec was 100-300ms... If there is boot issues i will know what it is I guess.

    We generally find that the relatively inexpensive PSU testers and other non-industrial meters sometimes do not have the sensitivity to properly measure the PG signal.  The last time we had a customer report a PG signal of 0, we hooked it up to an oscilloscope and it measured clearly within ATX spec.
     
    That's not to say that you can't find a PSU that will give you a good reading on those types of meters, but we also see unfounded concerns, as well.

    We have have tested albout a dozen diffrent power supplies with my tester... pg signal is usually 150-250ms... with 2 outliers... one was 500ms and the EVGA 550watt GA at 70ms.
