    A bit of useless trivia, but apparently high end server power supplies use the PCB as the transformer. Neat, huh? And they're spec'd for 90% at 50% as well.

    However, according to SKYMTL's testing ripple is 3 times lower compared to Hiper's unit. It hovers at 21mv max on 12V rail.

    I wonder why Dell goes through Hipro for what is essentially an OEM Delta unit.

    Is it just more economically feasible?

    Are the dabs of white glue to prevent electrical noise like coil whine?
