    So, let's assume my current power supply is 80% efficient, and my rig draws 350w, pulling ~440w from the wall. Let's also assume this is a constant load, all day every day. Does this mean that 90w is lost as heat? Now, let's assume I replace it with a unit that is 90% efficient. This means the rig now pulls ~390w, roughly 50w less than it currently does. Would this mean I'm generating 50w less of heat? Is this any meaningful amount at all?
