I make my question to diferent people and receive oposites answers , and oposite to my tecnical knowledge and common sense.

Here the specification of my psu:

My theory is that the psu has the limitation in 20A in each 12v output , and I cant get more than that , even if the other three are unused.

Some people say that if the other three are empty , that increase the amount of Amps that I can get from one 12V output

Im a Rigth or Wrong ? :heink:  :heink:  :heink:  :heink:

It depends on how the OCP is set, if it's set to the 20a that is claimed then that's all you'll get out of it ( most providers give a little leeway and set it slighltly higher ).
Is there something you plan on running that would eat up more than 20 amps ?

Work my psu for this vga , the sellers say yes , but in my theory no , what you think ?

The psu reccomendation is for the system, not the card alone, it will use less than 10 amps by itself, go for it.
