Why is this guy an editor? He says single 12 volt rails are the worst ever because they "skimp on protection and call if a feature" lol last time I checked the all those boards melting 24 pin connectors used multi 12 volt rail PSUs
He's an editor because he's one of the few active people in the PSU section that has a large understanding of Powersupplies.
The ignorance of this post is amazing.

Guys... no one is forcing you to buy a lower wattage PSU, and no one is telling you what to do or how to spend your money, either.
When you recommend an overkill Powersupply, you're making that buyer assume that's what he needs
to power his rig, and this is both spreading misinformation and wasting the buyers money... If you tell the buyer the correct wattage that he needs, and then he decides he wants to go higher, then so be it.Edited by GameBoy - 6/16/11 at 10:22pm
