It would be helpful if you could provide the text from the right face of #1, and a photo of the bottom of the board so we can see how many pins each component has (and how the pins are arranged). – Sparr Nov 19 '12 at 18:41
Nothing to do with electronic design! – Leon Heller Nov 19 '12 at 18:43
#10 is clearly a transformer. – Polynomial Nov 19 '12 at 18:48
We really need photos of all components with inscriptions in order to give a precise result. The rest could only be guesswork. – AndrejaKo Nov 19 '12 at 19:01
@NickAlexeev it's 40 watt 2A*20V and the other one is "otcnkac uc3843al ea" something like that, its not readable. oh and this psu is fake. – android93 Nov 20 '12 at 12:43

1 looks like a X capacitor (used for EMI/RFI filtering) and judging from a visible amount of copper, 10 most probably is a transformer.

+1 for the link to the Kemet presentation – Nick Alexeev Nov 20 '12 at 17:19
