    Default This power supply looks possibly dangerous

    I spotted this the other day, it has some sort of heatsinked device mounted to the external part of the back grill of the unit.

    Looking at this PSU in general, I wouldn't be surprised if that thing on the exhaust was purely decorational and wouldn't actually participate in any cooling

    I'm sure everyone noticed the whopping 15A on the +12V rail.

    I think they spent more money on ID than they did R&D.

    Remember the conversation we just had last week about primary heatsinks being energized? That red heatsink sure looks like it would be on the primary side.

    This is comedy gold. I'm posting this to our Facebook page.

    That modest 4A on 3.3V is adorable too.

    When adding everything I calculated ~250W maximum rating.
    And that's without any combined Rating...

    The energized heatsink discussion is what got me to thinking about this. Id love to know what exactly that heatsink is actually connected to, then again Im kind of afraid to find out.

    The ebay listing claims it is a 300W supply, the sticker 550W and as you point out the power only adds up to 250W

    I've been known to spend more than $25 (the cost of this unit with postage) recapping an old supply...
