You did an excellent job explaining in simple terms all the parameters tested. This indicates you truly know your stuff. This was a delight to read. I have been using seasonic psu's for quite some time, and have nothing but good things to say about them.

190mm really equals 7.48 inches

The ATX standard 160mm equals 6.3 inches
