Wattage is volts times amps
that 80% rule is for continuous draw... the breaker trips at the %100 value
Go back to school please

DC wattage is voltage times amps.

AC wattage is voltage times amps times the power factor.

The 80% thing is a design rule that an electrician has to follow if he wants the wiring to pass inspection.

The 80% thing is a design rule that an electrician has to follow if he wants the wiring to pass inspection.

The 80% rule has nothing to do with electricians or passing inspection
that is the design of a circuit breaker

electricians have rules as to wire size ... number of fixtures/outlets ... size of breakers
they must follow

yes ac wattage includes PF .. do you have any clue what power factor is

No, I forgot to read that article I linked, but I found another that you might like.

I'm done.

To the original poster: please don't burn your apartment building down.

Most of the decent PSUs people should be using for mining have 99% PF
