    ignore me, ignore me. Should read properly before posting

    Looks like the PSU was designed for older computers that drew most of their CPU power from the 5V rail. I'd avoid putting too much load on your CPU if I was you (either that or see if you can undervolt it at all) - that 12V rail only produces 96W, and your CPU can pull up to 95W!!

    Yeah Yeah, I know - I read A but my head translated it to V on the way through! It's late and I'm getting old

    To be honest I only know the higher the 12V the better, don't know the rest
