70A on the 12V rail...yikes !
Wish I could go into that C7 sleep state...I`d feel more rested upon awakening.

Another amazing psu review and another amazing psu from seasonic made even better by Be Quiet.

Two questions: In what situation would the multi 12v rails be chosen over the single rail? I have always used single rail psu's beginning back with pc power and cooling years and years ago.

The second question is about the fluid dynamic verse double ball bearing. Is one better than the other?
