    Why do you prefer Single Rail? What's the benefit over a decent designed Multi Rail PSU?

    The penalty for badly designed MR is (way) higher than for single rail. Triggering OCP because of design problems is really bad.

    Actually, the ATX design guide only says that multiple +12V rail is "recommended", but not "required".
