Difference between single and multiple rail power supply units (PSU)

There are countless myths about single and multiple rails used in computer power supply units (PSU), but here is the best explanation I’ve seen which further opened my eyes. I used to be a fan of single rail designs because they are just easier to manage on overclocked systems, but I never thought about benefits of multiple rails. And Tech Syndicate made a great interview with someone from Corsair (they also make some pretty damn good PSU’s).

There are also other vendors like German computer hardware maker Be Quiet! that doesn’t offer switching through software, but they offer mode switching through a physical switch/jumper on the PSU itself. There might be other PSU makers as well, but I’m currently only aware of these two.

    1. I left because it was filled with trolling assholes supported by moderators who apparently don’t mind trolling assholes or were trolling assholes themself. They clearly wouldn’t change, so I simply left. I’ve also left Slo-Tech in the meanwhile. Pretty much the exact same reason.

      Apparently having a slovenian forum without trolls is an impossible thing to have. TechPowerUp where I’m the most currently is the exact opposite. People from all over the world, zero trolls and mods who actually do their fucking job and aren’t buddies of trolls. That’s why.

      PS: Also, please, ask me such questions in the General Discussion up above next time. Thx
