    Seems the bridge rectifier doesn't need a heatsink.

    I have in mind the EVGA-W1 saga

    That is probably not the best unit to draw such conclusion from

    Good point, but I still want to figure out if the bridge rectifier really needs a dedicated heatsink.

    For example, some stand alone-diodes are rated for 6A, which means that 4 of these (for a bridge) might be able to handle over a kW even if the mains dropped to 100V; there are even 10A versions suitable for rectifying mains AC.

    It might be argued that the all-in-one bridge rectifier has four leads through which to dump heat, while the discrete version has twice as many leads.

    This thing is the closest to a gutless wonder without actually being one. Mostly saved by the guise of it not going boom.

    1 x 6-pin pci-e connector. I guess they dont even have faith in making it an 8-pin.
