    All 5 grounds work together, the return current is distributed across them. If you put 4.5A on one rail you cannot put another 4.5A on another rail (the total should not exceed 7.5A)

    Might I...

    You will get it, but at the risk of damaging the connector; 7.5A max if you don't want to take a risk.

    It is very simple, no pin should exceed 1.5A, the rest you can work out for yourself.

    1.5A per SATA pin, so 4.5A per rail and 7.5A overall since there are only 5 ground pins.

    So each cable carries up to 4.5A (assuming 2 ground cables as in the attached picture)

    Which begs the question: what do other supplies do at out-of-spec under voltage? hopefully not self destruct.

    I wonder if a better MOSFET could hold up, for me it is not obvious as the transformer may have gone into saturation.
