I understand why you'd think that, but since the PSU's neutral is actually ultimately grounded, it has enough mass to not have it's baseline zero voltage raised by sinking lots of current. If it were...

While not exactly a fire hazard, this PSU is unfit for service in any kind of modern PC, as has already been said. The biggest reason is the design of the PSU - it was made for 5V-heavy use, and the...

Well, that explains it. Maybe these guys should team up with Riotoro and/or BitFenix for some really nice and well thought out results.

Any idea which factory does the actual assembly?
