He does make an interesting point, though -- the one about comparative ripple amounts and power levels. I never thought about it that way before.

For example, say you have 50mv of ripple at 750W...

If so, I wonder why so many PSU manufacturers stick with very similar plugs? On some PSU's I've seen, you could jam some of the end plugs into the PSU sockets if you pushed hard enough. There is no...

I hope the burnt-out PSU is on its way now. I also hope you will keep us posted on what went wrong. May the QC engineer could take pics, and post them.

I have 4 UPS's -- one for the router and one each for the networked desktops. The reason the router is on its own UPS is to keep the network live during long blackouts. Before I bought these, we...
