The PSU features all protections besides Over Temperature Protection (OTP). Maximum operating temperature is only 40°C but since ATX spec recommends 50°C we will crank up the temperature inside the hot box.

Cables & Connectors, Power Distribution
The PSU is equipped with two PCIe connectors, one 6+2 pin and one 6 pin. Cable length is sufficient and distance between connectors is the recommended (150 mm). The ATX connector uses 16 AWG wires while all other connectors use 18 AWG. Our only objection is the limited number of peripheral connectors (4 pin Molex). We would like to see at least five of them.
Since this PSU features a single +12V rail we do not have anything to say about its power distribution.
