In Figure 16, you can see the power supply label containing all the power specs.
This power supply is sold as having two +12 V rails, which is correct, since this unit has two +12 V over current protection circuits (see previous page). Click here to understand more about this subject.
The two +12 V rails are distributed as follows:
- +12V1 (solid yellow wire): All cables, except the ATX12V/EPS12V cable
- +12V2 (yellow/blue wires): The ATX12V/EPS12V cable
This is the typical configuration of power supplies with two +12 V rails. It is adequate, as it puts the CPU (ATX12V/EPS12V connectors) and the video card in separate rails.
How much power can this unit really deliver? Let’s find out.
