One has a thin sheet as heatsink lol

At least yours showed up with their crappy input EMF filters.

I also forgot to mention the cherry on this particular sundae. Did you notice the sweet, sweet PCB warp?

I just got an Antec BP500U Basiq 500W power supply pulled from a thin rack server (Q9550 Core2Quad). It has 30A on the 3.3V and 5V lines which is nice, still works.
