The question is how much does it cost?
Huntkey isn't known to be a top brand in the past, in fact far from it.
Unless they adopt some aggressive pricing, why not grab a good Antec, Corsair or Enermax instead?
Either this, or this Huntkey needs to battle them with quality.... (I personally don't have much faith in them)

It doesn't give any real info, just the OCP rating of 20A for all 6 12v rails. No amperage totals.

He asked for "Amps on those 12v rails, actual efficiency rating," which are both given in the product page.

I'm thinking he means combined amperage on the 12V rails.

lol. Your 1090t pulls 240w? I somehow doubt it. What's the rest of your system?

That's load at the wall for the entire system, not for just the cpu. What cooler do you have to support 240W of output from your cpu?
ok at stock the system pulls 111w lets say the cpu is pulling nothing
overclocked only the cpu under 100% load it pulls 440w
thats 330w at the wall
psu there using is Enermax Liberty 620 W
which would 80% efficient
80% of 330w is about 270w i think

Your math is totally wrong, and there's no way a CPU can pull 440w or run without consuming any energy at idle either. Plus the efficiency of a PSU is the diffrence between the amount of A/C current converted to D/C. E.G. A PC consuming 80watts of D.C. power would be using 100Watts at the plug at 80 Efficiency.

my point was that the cpu alone pulls more then 240w and i think i proved that, if said it pull nothing on idle it was only helping him out

But you didn't help him out at all, and neither did you prove anything, nor answer his actual question which was what heat-sink you had for you CPU.

Explain how you proved it? Simply saying something happens isn't proof without data to back it up.

Why do they still split up the rails like that? Doesn't that just mean you can mess crap up if you don't use the right cord combination on a high load item? At least that's been my experience.

Agreed, A single 12V rail would have been far better, personally never used a Huntkey PSU either so can't comment about quality.

Not if you get a decent multi rail PSU.

I've never over tripped a multi-rail psu that was decent.

Hell its fairly easy not to overload the things anyway, just don't connect everything to one bunch of wires :laugh:

well sorry whole thing was about my/a amd 1090t can hit a 20Amp ocp at over 4.0ghz
No it can't, however you may have more stuff loaded onto the same 12v rail as the CPU hence the OCP kicking in which seems more likely.

You would need to be putting some volts through that CPU for it to use 20a=240w and it would shut off before it got loaded due to overheating as you wouldnt be able to cool 240w on an air cooler.
