I doubt it but I don't know for sure. If it did radiate something, you'd need a special coating along the inside of the PS as well as make sure it's completely sealed.

He's probably talking about EMI - electromagnetic interference. Really powerful EMI can mess up computer parts, but the sort of EMI you get from a PSU is a lot weaker.

Doesn't the PSU operate at too low a frequency to cause interference? The voltage regulators on the mobo operate at several times that frequency, so why aren't they enclosed?

I thought PSUs were enclosed because of their high voltage.
