    My favorite:

    Not to mention that post was in 2006. Hardly relevant to current technology.

    Whoever wrote the thread seems slightly misinformed about how things work.

    Yes. I saw that and chuckled too. The way components are powered within a PC has changed so much in 4 years.....

    I WISH!

    read DaleF's reviews, clearly he is in a league all to himself and we are but mere luddites when it comes to PSU's.

    My favorite post was the guy that doesn't think PSUs are hardware. (I'm dearly anticipating software-based PSUs...but only if they run on Linux.)


    First of all, the OCP isn't there to protect the hardware. It is there to protect the power supply and most importantly the wires in the event of an overload or short circuit, which could otherwise lead to a fire.
