I keep meaning to Kill-A-Watt test my EarthWatts 480 versus an old cheap 
PSU on the same mythbackend to see how it affects power usage.  Perhaps 
in 2 weeks.  (Would have been easier if a friend wasn't borrowing my 
Kill-A-Watt when I had the old PSU in the backend and before 
uninstalling it and installing the EarthWatts...)
