    It does have independently regulated +5V and +12V rails (3,3V is always independently regulated), in this case with Buck Regulators.

    So yeah, it is of decent quality.

    Do you have an example?? oO

    I do believe Enhance actually grouped the 5v & 3.3v on one of their units in the past.
