Wow, it seems like Fortron is on the forefront of efficient power supplies. I read the article and it was a good read for me. I will now look them up for the smaller power supplies. I hope they can come through like they did for Tom
I just read through the article and this puzzled me a lot.
"Efficiency is measured in terms of the relationship between the output and the input power, i.e., how much energy the power supply draws from the mains in order to supply the PC system with the required electricity. Our test produced differences of up to 15%. The best efficiency, at 78 percent, was achieved by the FSP400-60PFN. With output of 397 Watts, this power supply required an input power of 571 Watts. This means that 174 Watts must be dissipated as heat."
How is 397/571*100%= 78% ?
