I think PSU efficiency is the new thermal paste and/or cable management. It's grossly overhyped. I suppose it is just marketing working as it should.
I know what you mean. Most of my crunchers are using old low wattage psus. Hell I ran one for six to 8 months on a 12 year old enermax 430 watt unit. I partewd out the rig and keep the psu for a spare lol.
