Comment on Gateway PSU shown in IDF article

Reader Vance, a PC tech in one of the Gateway Country Stores, comments on the PSU pictures in IDF, Part 1:

Since the at least the pentium 90 era Gateway has used that kind of power supply design (see here for example) on the majority of their systems. They use fairly quiet 80mm or 92mm fans and some of the earlier P2-P3 slot 1 systems had rubber fan mounts and a giant plastic shroud hanging for the bottom of the PSU that encompassed a giant fanless slot 1 heatsink.

The 700XL case pictured in the IDF article is a nice design -- nearly completely tool-less to open, with a thick plastic skin/shell so it runs fairly quiet.
