That also is not the whole truth.
CE Mark is mandatory for every Part that is sold to any end user
inside the european community. So, a PC PSU must carry a CE mark if
Customers (end users) can buy it as a separate unit. Consequently,
this applies to every PC component that is sold as retail version.

EMC testing for these components is made in a "typical" environment.
Which leaves the question what is typical. So in doubt the system
integrator has the responsability that his system is CE conform.

All CE marking of components that are not sold in the end user market
and that are not subject to a particular european standard is a misuse
of the CE mark and therefore illegal. There are clear standards
and laws about the application of the CE mark.
