Christ guys, please do some proper maths before blindly following a manufacturers stated specifications.
OCZ are brilliant at marketing, but crap at honesty.
Four 18A 12V rails? Do the math. 4x18=72A, 72Ax12V= 864W.
864W? Really, what a bargainous 600W PSU it is eh?
Also, look at the label.http://www.ocztechnology.com/drivers/600wchart.JPG
They specifically state 580W max load on the whole PSU, not giving a specific figure for the 12V rails alone. Factor in a reasonable 100W on the 3.3v and 5v rails and that leaves you with 480W/4 rails = 120W per rail, or 10A.
10A != 18A no matter how they try and play it.
The PSU might handle it, but as I said, I wouldn't be happy.
