Plese refer to this other thread for the discussion on the difference in efficiency measured by the two different instruments:

The ripple at the +5VSB is meaningless or should be something to be concerned ?

In theory, yes. In practical terms I wouldn't bother.

The results from this review were updated to reflect AC power and efficiency measured by our new precision power meter. The updated results did not affect our conclusions or recommendation about this power supply.

This is an interesting update, since it allows a more in-depth check of the Kill-A-Watt meter.
Seems like it provides too high numbers on low load and too low at high load.

Cheers

Updated 08/07/09:

After this review was posted, Corsair tested this power supply using the same load patterns presented on the table below and, with a different equipment, the noise levels for +5VSB were completely different (very low). Please click here to see the results. The only explanation we have is that our equipment was somehow interfering with the results. This way the comments we've done before about the +5VSB output should be disregarded.
