Can you provide any insight into low load efficiency? For example, when the computer is idling and load is between 40-100W?

Jeez, the Active Clamp reset forward configration/topolgy and tne lack of information of the pfc/pwm controller put me out of the loop. It took a while but it helped me understand you conclusion is exactly correct. This particular design seems to requires less parts and maybe lower cost for less efficiency.

This link is an advertisement and simplistic but may help others without an electronics backgroung.

Davekaro, after disassembling this power supply, we couldn't put it back together, so we can't re-test it using the specifications you are asking.

Merman: that is correct. This design is cheaper as requires less parts and it seems to do the job. For this design FSP uses custom-made chips, make it impossible for us to analyse the particulars of this design.
