Time for a "get those dang kids off my lawn" post.

Some people just haven't been around long enough to remember when the PSU itself was a major source of heat...

When you were burning 400 watts with a .70 efficiency PSU...

172 watts of heat being used by the PSU alone.

So yeah, getting to 93 % is really pushing the limit.

Many years ago, saying that you had reached perfection, a 10 out of 10 was a very subjective rating...obviously there was just a shed load of room for better.

I guess they could start taking away 1/100 points now

Start 9.99 rating to differentiate from the 9.97 units.
