    Default General question on 12V rails

    Quick general question on 12v rails.

    If a PSU claims to be ATX12V compliant and it claims to have two rails:

    http://www.antec.com/specs/BP500U_spe.html

    Then, since the spec says the the 2x2 12V connector should essentially be on its own rail, does this mean that everything else is on one rail - or does this PSU really have 3 rails: one for the 2x2 connector, one for the mobo and one for everything else?

    Thx for the help,
    sdrac

    12V2 - CPU only
    12V1 - everything else

    Thanks Wolf -
    I thought that might be the case, and I posted as much on a different forum, but the folks there didn't believe me. I'll try again.
