    That's gotta be frustrating, to say the least.

    The manual does say it correctly for each rail, but not maximum for the entire device. If one didn't know what the max SATA connector will handle, which is 7.5 Amps, then may inadvertently...

    Ashiekh,

    Thanks. So, we're back to the Corsair Commander specs being somewhat misleading, since it says 4.5 amps each for 5v and 12v. (Another concept light goes on--5 ground pins.)

    So if there...

    Got it. But now you now I have to ask about the 7.5 amps deal.

    I don't expect you to explain how the ground pins affect total amps, but I would like to know if that limitation in Amps affects...

    Just to be clear so I don;t blow it up, the Commander Pro will handle both 4.5 amps on the 5v pin and 4.5 amps on the 12v pin (I know you said that, but I want to make completely sure I understand)?...

    Yeah, ugh, sorry for the confusion about my question, Jon, but it's important to know.

    Yes, the 18 gauge wire will handle much more than 4.5 AMPS, and I understand that. What I need to know is...

    Right, but what I meant was the the SATA connectors that come on the 18 gauge wire are rated for 4.5A each? (Not just the device side connector?)

    Ok that makes sense then about the connector itself. People didn't understand that even though they could get 25 Amps from the SATA rail, their SATA connectors would not handle it. Just to be clear,...

    Ok, that really helps then. I was thinking the 5+ was 5 Amps only. Plenty of power available then for devices. Just have to watch the device amps rating.

    So, interesting the melting sata ports,...

    I mean what is the total or maximum amps the SATA plug from the PSU can supply? And, while we're on the subject, what happens if a device tries to take more than the max amps? Is it protected in some...

    Thanks for the explanation. And I did mean SSD taking 5V.

    Total amps regardless if the device need 12V or 3.3V is 4.8 Amps?

    Yeah I saw that. I don't know how to ask my question. Maybe something like the wall outlet in your house is 120V. How many volts is the SATA connection from the PSU?

    Well, I was talking about how many volts are supplied to the PSU plug. So it is actually a 12V rail?

    What is the voltage on the SATA plug?

    I'm assuming all PSU are the same, so was just wondering what the output voltage is for the SATA cables? Is it 12V/5V or 12V and somehow reduced to 5V?

    AA Battery No Load Voltage Test
