    Split or Combine 12v Rail?

    I've just upgraded my pc and noticed that my PSU has the option for combined or split 12v rails. I've never really thought about it before and wondered what you guys think I should set it too. My new spec is is the 'My System' tab.

    (580w Tagan TG580-U1 for those of you who can't be bothered to press the button )

    The great thing about Tagan's is that it will switch to combined if it needs to, all by itself. Magical, huh?

    Try split, if not, it'll just fall back

    Never heard of that before. Sounds like a good thing tbh.

    I've had it on combined and so far it seems to be just fine.
