Don't feel too bad. The US really was a mishmash of grid frequencies until after WW2. Parts of southern California were 50Hz until the late 1940's. Old timers told me stories of swapping 50Hz clocks...

GFI compare the current in the L and N conductors, and trip if there is an imbalance (current leakage) that exceeds the design specification. Not necessary for there to be current on Ground.

Nah, you can run those Corsair RMs at 95% load 24/7 for at least 3 years at 35 degrees C; I'd say longer but mine has only been running for 38 months.

The choice of a USB 3.0 based cable makes sense to me. Even if you were to design a custom cable, it would probably end up looking very similar to a USB 3.0 cable. USB 3.0 and a single PCI-E (v2)...

Remember, the USB cable is not using USB protocol on those links. They are just basically being used as physical wire extensions of the PCI-E slot. The quality requirements for the USB cable will...

With the described setup, IMO the most likely points of failure are the 2 12V pins in the PSU. 2nd most likely is one of the adapters, just because adapters are almost always bad quality (bad...

Keep those fire extinguishers handy.
If you keep the total power draw below 216W on the 12V lines, it might work, but it is right at the edge of the envelope. BTW, many (most?) PCI-E graphic cards,...

Ernst, I'd be more likely to believe that the new power adapter is spoofing the power meter rather than wasting 16W at idle. The quest for efficiency in wall-warts (and regular PSUs as well) leads to...
