My System Specs


From my POV it's just one less thing I need to worry about when factoring in my PSU choice. I generally try to run my PSUs somewhere between 60 - 75%, but I throw a lot of voltage at my CPU and the last thing I want to have to do is second guess what 12V line is paired with the CPU.

I agree that the days of rolling our eyes when we see a multi-rail unit are mostly over, but it's still an issue (IMO) in some cases, especially if a person is trying to stretch their dollars by purchasing a PSU which just barely meets their requirements.

edit: It also bears mentioning that folks on a budget would be hard pressed to find a crap single rail unit rated at what they're looking for, while the same most definately can't be said about multi-rail ones.
