question about 12v rails.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
On a PSU when it says 12v1 and 12v2 like 16amps each. Do you add those together for your total amps?? Or what??

Thanks.

A more realistic total would be something like 26amps.

That 16 amps is the MAX load for EACH individual rail, as in, only one rail can give that much at one time.

I'm not sure about the exact amperage of that though
