"Equipped with accurate power ratings to deliver their full rated power, the ASUS U-75HA is Intel ATX 12V Version 2.3 compliant, and incorporates four real 12V rails (12V1,12V2,12V3,12V4) to provide stable support for high-end graphic cards."

That is enough to put me off from this PSU. I don't plan on ever getting another PSU with more than one 12V rail. If one rail is dedicated to the CPU, and it only uses 1/2 of it, that rail is still completely used up, where as if you have one rail for everything, it is only used up when the PSU is at 100% load.

The thing that it's missing can be summarized in one word: ESA - Enthusiast System Architecture
