I have a Jeantech Arctic 600w PSU

Can you tell me what the output is on the +12V line? Is this a dual rail PSU or a single?

Please help as i am tryign to sell it and they have asked me that question !

Sorry, posted too soon:

Refer you potential buyer to one or both of the links I have given. All the information is there.

According to €dstowe's link it's dual rail with 19A available on each rail.

1 rail is for the 12v CPU

Its a good PSU, i have this one and its great, not had one problem with it. It has few nice touches to it

I think you'll find that most CPU's run at very low voltage click here

Thanks guys :>

Its not the voltage, its the AMPs that are drawn from each rail and that are constant

The +12V indeed does feed the CPU, as well as many other parts of the system. For the CPU the voltage is regulated down (on the motherboard)to whatever the particular CPU needs.

The current (amps) that each rail is quoted at in the specs is not a constant - it's a maximum (or at least it's the maximum to draw continuously - it may be able to supply short term peaks a bit higher).

The current actually drawn from each rail is whatever the system needs to draw - usually significantly less than maximum - and depends on what the system is doing.
