You must not have ever looked. Whenever a thread gets started, it almost gets violent

Logically you would, but as you will read in countless threads, Amiga users are not logical. They still insist on upgrading A500's and A2000's!

Not true, the whole point is to move the heat somewhere else that has airflow.

I dunno about you but all stock PSU's struggle, even solid core A500 ones with an above normal load. Accelerator + hard drive + Ethernet card + scandoubler + FastATA + CF card = no go.

It wasn't back then and it isn't now! Why else would people buy ATX adapters. Certainly isn't because they've broken or lost their original PSU. It's because their system is not running stable.
