    Does failing to meet that requirement means anything other than a couple more watts on the electricity bill?
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    It means not shipping units into CA if you're a system integrator without risking a fine. CEC laws go into effect this year requiring minimum system efficiency to be 60%, next year 70%. (IIRC)

    You still have power loss in the rest of the system but RM helps make it so the PSU isn't the major culprit at 2% load.

    How do they calculate system efficiency?

    Semi passive mode with fan facing downwards is not recommended? Didn't know that, then should I face it upwards?

    Is there any plans for a 550W model or do they not make sense price wise?

    There's a whole XLS that SI's need to fill out.

    Didn't make much sense. Plus this is a weird SKU given how similar it is in price and feature to RMx so that made it even harder to fit another 550W into the stack.

    As Jon said, excel calculator they have to fill out. SIs self-certify and CEC does spot checkups on system level efficiency. Send out a fine if they find you violate. Supposedly...

    What kills me is that Aris thinks that if it had Teapo caps in it, it would be better.

    Serious question, now (no 's' or '/s'): have you tried the same PSU with JapCaps (TM) and without? Has your company done A/B testing? Or A/B/C?
