For example, my HX850w is neither low quality, nor cheap.

I can buy cheaper multi rail psu's......but don't think that would improve the safety of my system.

So I think I did not skimp on my psu? right?

Also the manual says it has:

Over current/voltage/pwer protection. Under voltage protection and short circuit protection.

So will I be OK now with this single rail 70A psu, or not?

Thanks
your fine

dont skimp on psu is for those psu'd out there who cant deliver their rated power and blow up at random times without warning like those $20 1000 watt psu's

Obviously the 'Smoke, Fire, and Light Show' is an added feature of single rail PSU's!

My PSU is 850w, and has a single 70amp rail, so I am not fine

Might contact Corsair to see if they have any comments

concern shouldn be the word uncomfortable is more like it.850 watts is still within reasonable limits for a single rail psu

you have a good psu from a good brand and there is a ton of quality concerns with the above burn psu from ultra which isn't nearly as good as corsairs finer offerings

sorry for the confusion

Word thanks for the reassurance..

And it would be extremely simple and inexpensive (for any competent modder) to implement a solution to prevent this overcurrent damage.

I am surprised that no-one has thought of it.

Let us see if someone figures it out.
