    Default 400Hz

    Found this power supply that can work on 400Hz (as on ships and aircraft)

    The advantage of 400Hz is that linear power supplies can run at higher power (the SMPS philosophy on a small scale); I once moved an inverter I had to 400Hz for this very reason.

    But I wander... can most PC power supplies accept 400Hz? I imagine so, but to little advantage other than going easier on the bulk capacitors.


    P.S. It would probably drive the PFC circuit crazy.
