The power supply is not 100% efficient, so generates its own heat. If you 
only measure the power output into the rest of the system you will not be 
measuring the entire power draw; therefore any assumptions or calculations 
around heat generated must take that into account.

I'm not sure my point is much different from yours.

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Forgive me if I said something stupid, I'm tired and not thinking well
