Over Current Protection (OCP) in a single +12V rail and with 1250W capacity PSU sounds very odd. It seems that since the PSU doesn't have OPP (Over Power Protection), at least according to OCZ, OCP was necessary even with an 104A rail! Also the PSU is compliant with the older ATX 2.2 specification since the newer (2.31) requires at least two +12V rails.

It seems that we will break the 100A barrier with this PSU, probably in the Crossload 2 Test.

The PSU is equipped with plenty of cables/connectors. Cable length is sufficient and the distance between connectors is the recommended, by ATX specification. Also PCIe, EPS and the main ATX cables are equipped with thicker 16 AWG wires, something that is very welcome of course. The rest of the cables use 18 AWG wires, the ATX recommended wire size.
