I just stumbled across some neat articles that discuss how motherboard quality can differ as far as power/voltage regulation goes, and other neat stuff like that.
Some other useful information in the world of voltage regulators, voltage rectifiers, diodes of all sorts, and semiconductors:
Definitions for anode and cathode (as in "cathode end" and "anode end":
"The anode of a device is the terminal where current flows in. The cathode of a device is the terminal where current flows out."
Ah, here is a better place that is helpful and comparatively superior for diode identification by looking at the diode's color banding.
