Once again we see the dreaded "rated by max power rather than continuous" PSU standard. Makes it awfully hard for the average user to make a good choice without having to do a lot of research.

Nice to see a couple of 22A rails though, is there a breakdown of what comes off of each rail besides the cpu of of 12V1?

Also nice to see 2 floppy connectors.... I'm not sure about other boards, but that's a nice touch for those of us with both molex & floppy connections required by our mobos.

Bingo. PSUs are a huge business these days and some companies are really messing things up with trumped-up ratings.

I would GUESS that it is the CPU on the +12V1 rail with everything else on the other. I didn't include this because it is only a guess because for the life of me, I couldn't trace the wires. :sad:
