    I'd like to know this too(I'm inclined to believe they all have a similar rail configuration).

    Probably same rail configuration with the 1000W too. Jeremy tested that one, so I can't say for sure, but my guess is with either the lower wattage or the way Jeremy distributed the load, it was never revealed.

    ocp only proves SS knows their stuff. the marketting bleep isn't good for consumers though.

    Given the ten degree window 80 Plus allows for a pass (+/- 5 from 23 degrees), I'm not sure it matters a whole lot.

    If by any chance you come across a definite answer, maybe an official one from Seasonic, please let us know.

    I just purchased a Seasonic P-860 hoping for a single-rail monster, and now I feel cheated

    You should feel lied to, but not cheated. It costs more to make a power supply with multiple +12V rails.

    Well since this review went straight to the hotbox results i just wanted to make sure we weren't judging this unit for failing at 45C or more as that wouldn't be fair. Jonny said it was at ambient so im satisfied and it definitely failed by more than a little like the 1000 W units did, just wanted to know for my own sake.

    Why would you feel cheated? In almost all circumstances multi-rail is better, if not just for the ocp protection. It's extremely hard to load a quality multi-rail in a way that would cause shutdowns, you'd have to do something stupid like max out the amps using a power supply tester *cough*. But indeed, this marketing blows and has far too much misinformation and/or lies in it.
    I will preach love for multi-rail whenever I can, because we need to combat the anti multi-rail fud in the world.

    I'm surprised that the OCP did trigger. If XFX hasn't made any change to the original Seasonic configuration, the trip point on each rail should be at ~60A or so.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.
