    Running on undervoltage

    Just out of interest; what would happen if one ran a voltage regulator, in this case a power supply at under voltage, say 50V. Would it try its best and perhaps burn out the rectifying diodes due to...

    One might have hoped that Over Current Protection (OCP) had kicked in rather than 3 connectors fail on one unit.

    Molex plugs

    I hate the 4 pin molex plugs, but understand that power supplies still need to offer them. What would it take to have then as an extension to a SATA plug so people like me could just throw them out?
