680 Lightning overclocked and overvolted consumes more than the 12V rail of my X-1250 could handle, resulting in the PSU switching off during load spikes of BF3 (scrapmetal 64 player server). Stupid design. V12_2 is PCI-e and is 30A, V12_3 is PCI-e as well and is 45A. make both 45A and I wouldn't have this problem. XFX/Seasonic advertise it (1250W and 1000W gold/platinum variants) as "single rail" assuming you'll never exceed 30A to find out it isn't. AX1200i is 104A of true single rail.
I hear that, I loved the silverstone 1500w psu until the 680 lightnings, but with multi 25A rails a 1500W PSU becomes only good enough for sli, can't even bench tri sli properly without adding a second PSU because the stupid thing has 4 x 8pin + 6pin pci-e cables.
