OCP on both +12V rails is set very close, as you can see. The minor rails have high OCP triggering points; these don't create any problems, even under extreme conditions. We would, however, like to see a lower OCP activation point at 5VSB.
OPP is configured properly, while there is SCP on all rails.
Unfortunately, there is no surge protection, since we didn't find a MOV or a TVS diode in the transient filter. Moreover, the power-good signal is not accurate.
