Mr. Scott, I need more power!

In these times of ever more power hungry processors - and in our case at least two plus a bunch of drives - a good power supply is an absolute must. Can you believe the manufacturers specs? The guys over at Tom's Hardware have run 21 high end (300W+) units to the limit - and beyond in some cases!
Our comparative power supply test indicates, beyond question, that some manufacturers need to make serious quality and accuracy improvements in the information provided with their products and with the performance statistics claimed in order to make these products perform as represented. Time and time again, our lab measurements were unable to verify the output figures represented on the model identification sticker.
If you need some solid evidence to convince 'her indoors' why you NEED that $100+ quality PSU, this is it.
