  1. No its just you could overrun a linear psu.A switch mode will disconnect on the same overload. However the losses on a linear are huge. id estimate a new psu on an average system will save over 80 quid a year. That was before the current prices for electric. Id say its worth replacing linear psu for switch mode now more than ever. Logan just dont tell your parents how much electric your old gear hobby is costing them.
