Well I sort of disagreed with a computer salesman today. Then while at the local surplus store picking up some spare parts, I asked him and he sided with the computer salesman.
I was under the impression that unless you were drawing the extra power from a PSU it wouldn't create extra heat. Now both of these guys are trying to tell me that a 500 watt PSU would run hotter than a 400 watt PSU even though I would be drawing the same amount of power from both.
I thought the amount of heat was directly related to the amount of power drawn?
You're right, they're wrong. And I wouldn't worry about it anyway in respect to the system, since a power supply exhaust more heat than it puts into the case.
