I just this week received a new P150 from Newegg (TN warehouse) that contained a NeoHE 430 PSU with a serial beginning S0604 and bearing an A4 revision stamp and a blue dot. Mated with a new Asus P4P800-E mb it has performed perfectly for four days with completely normal on/off cycles. My thanks to ...

In the early days of switching power supplies the minimum load spec was simply used to define at what output load the various output voltages could be guaranteed to be within spec. Has anyone actually read a spec that states that a power supply must power down if minimum load is not attained? Could ...

Belt and suspenders works for me! :) How long can it be before some enterprising quiet guru starts selling molded soft rubber fan gaskets with molded "tits" on one side that snap into the fan and another set on the opposite side that snap into the chassis bolt holes?;) hint...
