    FYI Germany isn't the only country in Europe.

    Don't say that to germans: since about 1850 they think Europe is their own affair.

    Nice video. I would have liked to see one more argument: Single Rail is absolutely fine for 300/350/400W psu since the total power there is so low.

    750W SR or UR (Single rail or Uni Rail) PSUs are perfectly fine, too. (Anyone who plays Japanese card games can see what I'm doing here )

    although on a 1200W it really saves the trouble but i can't help thinking MR might just save somebody's day ...
    spectacularly.

    especially when it all goes wrong ...

    Default What kills future purchases of single 12V rail PSUs for me

    See http://www.legitreviews.com/intel-x9...unknown_150008 for why a virtual multiple rail PSU could possibly save your motherboard and/or your CPU depending on where the OCP trip point is set.
