i agree with this guy.

Q: how much voltage tolerance is safe for overclockers and consumers? as to not damaged their hardware.

I'm guessing hipro5 or JGuru

Q: Do you think the average user can make his own PSU, bringing the level of modding ones computer to a new level?

Two linked questions for the Pro:

Q1) To what extent do you believe it is possible to buy a 'futureproof' PSU today?

Q2) Any general guide on the % of total available power you need to start using from a PSU before you get good efficiency, or does this wildy vary?

Q: What are decent rail amps to run a new age system?
post #27 of 69
Q: Does a power supply perform better or worse at certain temperatures? if so can you get more power out of your power supply by cooling it better?

Q: what exactly is the operating temperature of a power supply? is it better to get a power supply with a higher operating temperature, or a lower operating temperature?

Q: We're starting to see water cooled, ultra high wattage PSUs. Useful? Marketing gimmick?

This question could very well be joined with

I thought Single rails were better.

I would like to discuss why Single Rails are better ( I could be wrong) than multiple 12V rails, and in what scenarios. And what to look for in a PSU that will ensure that the Voltages will be as accurate as they should be.
