The over-power protection triggering point is crazy-high; we get almost 2160W from the PSU before OPP shuts it down. No doubt, this is a powerful platform. But we believe that OPP should be set close to 115% (1840W) in order to protect the PSU more effectively.

Over-temperature protection is set high as well, which we've seen from previous Super Flower implementations.

The real records are set by the minor rails and their 51A OCP thresholds. This is the first time we've encountered such an ambitious limit for those rails.
