Ah, didn't think of a TEC, though I would hope that anyone using a TEC that powerful with the knowledge required to do it without killing anything, would also have the knowledge to either run it off multiple rails or better yet off an aux power supply. But I do know that this isn't always the case.

The quote you gave basically agreed with the line PCP&C gave, nether claimed its better but rather the 20A limit per line isn't there, hardcore overclockers can easily pull more than 20A off one 12v rail.
Yes, that was your statement, but then you preceeded to back that statement up with a statement that is implying that a single rail is better. It didn't come right out and say it, but it was implied throughout the entire article. And as Wile E said, that is just PSU Manufacturer marketting BS and there are really Pros and Cons to both.
I just don't feel comfortable with having a large single 12v rail with the PSU is rated for more then 40A, but as already said it is really just personal preference. Maybe it is my small background in electrical work which tells me an 18AWG wire isn't meant to hold up under much more than 20A at 12v.
