Hi

Long time reader of SPCR, just wanted to give a suggestion to improve the readability when looking at the noise comparison between powersupplies at various loads.

Currently there are two colours, yellow when under 30dBA and green when over. To me it would be interesting to add a second colour at maybe 20dBA or even 15dBA, to really see where the limit of the various powersupplies when it comes to noise.

best regards
Humbert Klyka

Also the current colorscheme is counter intuitive with green being the bad one. I suggest use the colors in the same way as in traffic lights: green is go (quiet), yellow is almost quiet and red is no go (not quiet).
