I thought 50 amps for a 650w was kinda low (again for a 650w, not talking about 650w being to low to run a system) but maybe I'm wrong
I understand that it draws more power from the wall to do the same job as a more efficient PSU but that extra watts for the same amount work has to go somewhere and that somewhere is more heat.
You can't have it both ways here, something has to give.
I would think heatsoak on a PSU is a pretty important thing for a SFF setup but again, maybe I'm wrong.
My Neo5500 seems to radiate a fair amount of heat into the small amount of space inside the of the node 304 case, can't wait to upgrade to a higher efficiency unit at some point this week.
My Seasonic x750 hardly ever even needs to spin the cooling fan and it hardly ever even warm to the touch.
My Neo HE550 is a heat pump doing the same work vs. the x750.
Wish my x750 could fit inside the Node 304. Edited by internal - 10/29/12 at 1:05pm
