Not just yours, I would've docked the unit a lot more for being the wrong kind of group reg, i.e. having the "wrong" crossload bias. Perhaps it might have been interesting to see how far it could be...

Well, considering the second batch of transient testing places a 15A load on the 12V rail (180W), and counting the preload of 50% (500W), I think the PSU should be able to cope with those modern GPUs...
