Question about my PSU...

Just wanted to ask question about my PSU.

My PSU OCZ modXstream pro 700W
http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-500w-700w-modxstream-pro-power-supply.html

and my GPU :
http://uk.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/ENGTX560_Ti_DCII2DI1GD5/#specifications

Now, recomended power supply for this card is "minimum of 550W ( with 12V current rating of 38Amper )

I wanted to know how it works, cause my PSU's got 2 rails 25A, since GPU is powered by
2 x 6pin external cables, common sense tells me that manufacturer of that PSU placed both of those 6 pins on separate rails?

So if my PSU has got 2 x 6pins for PCI express and 2 rails of current 25A, are they separate ?

  1. It is as simple as this:

    25A + 25A = 50A x 12v = 600w maximum output wattage on +12v rails
  2. PSU has a swicth that will combine automated dual
    +12 V rails, and the calculation as it like omnisome said. Don't worry about in , it will fine
  3. Thanks guys.

    Not really.

    Read the label, 552 watts available to the 12v = 47a
  5. Beat me to it. It seems nearly everyone wants to simply total the max ratings of all the rails.
