No, not really. Some multi-rail PSUs can supply more than their rated current on a rail, but that can be for a number of reasons, including:
-The PSU is really a single-rail unit that is labeled as a multi-rail and doesn't have OCP (like the Corsair HX520/HX620).
-The PSU rails are actually just a split-up single rail with individual OCP limits (most multi-rail PSUs these days are like this).
-The PSU is a true multi-rail unit, but it's OCP is set higher than the actual rated value so you can pull more current from each rail without causing the PSU to shut itself off.
Heh.... Hence why I'm still a die-hard single rail fanboi..... ;)
