    Default any dual rails PSU that are actually single rails inside

    Hi Does any know which PSU that say on dual/multiple +12V rails but actually the multi +12V are combined or the shared the same wiring etc.

    As dual/multiple rails are so prevalent, I find it hard to find one that has a single rails which has high amp which is mid range (not that expensive).

    I am looking for ~30A for the +12V and high amp for combined +5.5V and +3.3V (not lesser than 28A) as well. Something where the max output for +5.5V and +3.3V is above 230W.

    Appreicate your advice. Thanks in advance.

    Off the top of my head, most Zippy units over 460W will do, as will the Silverstone ST56ZF and PC P&C 510W.

    Hi I think I found this single rail +12V at 36A

    Any known issue about this PSU that I should take note before buying?
    http://www.zippy.com.tw/P_product_de...;HP2-6500PE(G1

    However the description I saw on the box at the store think is EMACS GSM-6500PE G1 500W Gaming PSU. But I can't find this same description at the website. But I supposed it's the same as the link.
    Thanks.

    lol no need to worry about known issues as that is one of the best PSU's money can buy. Unless of course you have really sensitive ears cause some complain about the fan noise of it but personally I can't hear my Zippy 6600P.

    The GSM series is different in terms of fan noise when compared to the PSL series. GSM--> Gamer line, PSL--->Server line. Note that apart from asthetics and fan control, both series have the same guts.

    Some still complain about the GSM line fan though. And yes it does spin up with higher heat but it takes quite a bit to get it there. If my room would stay below 24°C ambient I would never hear it.

    Hi this is to update all of you that I finally went ahead and bought this psu. Thanks for suggesting this psu and giving me the assurance.

    Well, i quite agreed about the heat. It make the surrounding area of the cpu rather warm even though my chassis is equipped with exhaust and intake fans. It makes me want to attach some passive heatsink to the psu case just to cool the psu casing.

    As for noise, quite minimum such that I hardly noticed the existence of the noise.

    haiz, Just found out I should have gotten the Silverstone ST56ZF that was mentioned above. I didn't realised this one was available in the store and that the it's 12V is 38A, 3.3V is 38A and a combined of output of 560W. All way above my Zippy 500W. The Silverstone ST56ZF is $31 cheaper than zippy 500w too. Humph....
