    You asking me?

    99% of the time I see it, it's the connector at the end of the PSU cable (either end).

    It's too difficult to go through the original post and update all of the photos since they're not in order on my drive. So I'll just attach them all here.....

    According to Tazz, they're no longer on the server. I'll try to dig them up and re-upload them.

    That's not how you define the "tier" of a company.

    You're talking about failure of the switch on the PSU itself.

    Using another means to kill power to the PSU doesn't prevent the inrush.

    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.
