Default Zeus zm1200m

Is it true the new batches of the silverstone zeus zm1200m power supply have access to the switch to combine the 12v rails into one on the outside?
or is it still like the other ones but they just removed the void warranty sticker?

If THIS is the power supply you're talking about, then yes, it does come with the switch.

Although as best I understand it, the multiple rail option is primarily present so that the unit qualifies for server duties. For enthusiast/home PC applications, you might as well go single rail so you don't have to think about whether you're overloading any one rail.

Hi,
I had to remove the warranty seal in order to access the switch , then once i removed the seal there was some plastic covering the switch .
I used a sharp pin and was able to slowly push the plastic out of the way in order to access the switch.
It wasn`t easy that switch is so tiny.

There is no sticker over the switch hole on the newer models - that info comes directly from Silverstone. My second review sample had no sticker.
