    i got lost following the discussion but 240, neutral and ground is what you want and the PSU or any European 240V only appliance will work fine. It does violate code to stay with 14awg wiring but...

    well I think the PSU guidelines for ripple measurements just specify some capacitance across the probe tip and not the load. The PSU itself presents a capacitative load at power-on as Travis...

    well my initial set-up with just ~1200W worth of loads and a hot box and DC volt/amp meters but only a cheap kill-o-watt for AC cost me about $500 but it can be done for less.

    if the 10% tolerance is ok (i.e. you get precision with your metering and not with your loads) then this is about as cheap a load you'll find...~$20 for 225W w/o cooling.

    hmm well I dunno why they thought adding a voltage sensor would do that especially since the voltage difference between 75W and 150W isn't that much...the only way to ensure a connector can provide...

    I don't know why PCI SIG was worried about putting 150W on a connector that's still rated for more...obviously there's no point in a sensor wire if the PSU doesn't use it for regulation and PSU's...

    hmm well I guess any contact type sensor is really measuring it's own temperature and not what it's in contact with but the two should equalize over time. Most people are using K-type thermocouples...

    yeah I think a temp delta of 20C is high...the design puts primary heatsinks so close to the exhaust is some of it I reckon (just due to proximity between the temp probe and the sinks)...plus a...

    if the fan doesn't have rpm circuitry in it then you're out of luck and if the fan does have it then it'll already have an rpm wire.
