    Now remember.... You don't have to switch off the on-board RGB completely. There should be a setting that will turn the lights off while the PC is in standby, but turn the lights back on when the...

    Why would you "guess" that? The drop dead date for requiring IEC 62368 is 12/2020. That's fourteen months away.

    230V only PSUs still have (now, in most countries) mandatory APFC. The ONLY reason to not have it auto switch for full range of inputs is to save money by cutting the...

    I never said any PSU was "230V only". In fact, if you look at post #3, you'll see I give 180V as an example of a low voltage on a "230V" PSU.

    But like you said, it really varies... and I've seen...

    Hold up time is not linear. The higher the load, the shorter the hold up time. If a PSU meets a spec of 100% load, it's going to have considerably longer hold up time at 25% load.

    But I'm sure they had to add that little vent on the inside because the primary heatsink's components were overheating.

    You presume incorrectly.

    The CX and CX-M are completely different.

    While both have DC to DC, which is better than 90% of what's on that site as far as 80 PLUS Bronze PSUs go, the CX-M uses an...

    For some reason, that shop only has the 550W version of the CX-M. If you have other options, see if you can find a CX450 or CX550 (non-M).

    There is no -5V.

    If the PSU boots one system and not the other, I would venture to guess that the problem isn't the PSU.
