Ah, yes: the choke.

I knew the function at the time I described it, but not the proper name for the component.

Thank's for fitting the description with the component.

Speaking of power supplies, I have just received the latest Cyberguys catalog, and on the reverse cover, I saw these improved Molex connectors. They allow you to disconnect your drives from power without banging up your knuckles, all with a mere squeeze of the tab. No more cursing, no more bloody knuckles, no more frustration. Just easy disconnections.
