    More BS about "trapped power". "If you have a rail for the CPU that delivers 18A and the CPU only uses 8A, you have 10A of trapped power."

    I just want to go on a killing spree so help me god.

    I shouldn't have watched that. Now my head hurts. I should also quit keeping a hammer by the computer.

    what I don't understand is why your surprised. The amount of misinformation around is astounding to anyone that actually stops to check it. why do people buy gaming rigs with 1000 dollar CPUs when an AMD phenom will match or beat it? Or for that matter how many (very good) reviews have you done stating what should have been obvious? How many people still go and buy those 20 dollar PSU?

    sorry its been a long day and more stupidity did not help.

    I think I will start up a review site. I can review stuff that I don't have any understanding about too...that is easy.

    Yeah, and give "Kick butt" awards

    I was thinking the same thing, but I don't look good on camera

    LE: Let's get serious.
    Ignorance is bliss. People fear what they don't understand.

    Sure, these are cliches, but these video reviews are "user friendly". Like George Costanza used to say, people need to see a human face

    That's why I like OW's reviews, they're user friendly have are funny, but they are still a little complicated for regular people.

    What happens in regulation or ripple exceeds ATX limits? I don't even know that, and I've been here a while

    Ripple, maybe, there are some explanations in some of your revirews, but regulation...

    Don't worry - Monday's review will get into that out of necessity.

    I think PC Power and Cooling wrote the review for him...he just had to read it on air.

    wait you mean that's not true? But that's not what pcp&c said.
