    I'd go one step further and say much better by four, since heating goes like I^2

    It is just a thought... to conduct heat away. That is how science proceeds... starts with a conjecture which is often wrong.

    I wonder how much silicone oil would help; it keeps the pins from corroding and so maintains a better connection.

    When connectors suffer heat damage, is it usually those on the power supply (for modular) or those on the motherboard end?

    The startup currents are very large as the primary capacitor needs to be filled, some times you catch the AC cycle at a low (no crackle) and sometimes high; by turning it off you are reducing the...

    The power supply is often just a source for another voltage regulator, but if not smooth that regulator must work harder and may suffer 'reliability and lifespan' issues.
