Dual Athlon MP 1U units

Are PFC (power factor correction) power supplies standard, or something 
special wrt providing only required power and therefore less heat?  A 
vendor told me that a dual 1900 Athlon on Tyan 2466 mboard can be run in 1U 
if done with a 300w PFC power supply.  Do they know some great secret, or 
are they stretching physics?

PS:  AMD shows one vendor's case approved with the Athlon MP running at all 
available clock speeds, i.e. that would include 1900+
