    For Pete's sake stop calling it a kettle lead. It's not a kettle lead; kettle leads are fused at 13A. It's an IEC mains lead, which is fused at 5 or 6A and doesn't have a cutout in the bottom of it. Compare one some day, and you'll notice that while it's not possible to power a kettle from your computer's power supply lead (the plug won't fit, and the fuse would blow more or less immediately) it is certainly possible to power a PC from a kettle lead. If you do this, it will not be correctly fused, leading to an increased risk of fire.

    It's not a kettle lead. Grngh!

    I have a Seasonic 500W... must be the "old" model and I'm more than happy with it. Powering my rig with ease and quiet all the time.
