Has MaxPC ever done an article where they compare efficiency of 80 Plus labeled PSU's? For example, 80 Plus Silver vs. 80 Plus Bronze vs. 80 Plus

Is there a way to accurately measure efficiency on a PSU?

It is easy to find how efficient a power supply is. That is the reason for the silver and bronze ratings after all. Most sites include this when reviewing a power supply. Its not that huge a difference if you buy a name brand powers supply these days, especially if you sleep or shut down your computer. A few cents per day.

Whew! The B I guess stand for Bronze, not BTUs or some such! W would have been a much better descriptive name.
