New Power Supply

 I recently built a new desktop computer replacing a Dell XPS400 I noticed pretty soon afterwards that my office was warmer. The new PSU ran fine with no issues except it pushed out some serious BTU's.  I decided to replace it with a OCZ ModXstream from Newegg that was modular. After the install there was a noticeable difference in the temp in the room. The CPU, Motherboard and graphics cards are also running cooler. The inside of the case  looks nicer without all of the extra wiring.  I may miss the the old PSU this winter but glad to see it go this summer.
