Pros: Right after I wrote my review, I was able to find a review of the model M12D that this power supply is based on. Jonnyguru already tore this one apart. Just as I suspected by reading the label, this is a single +12V rail design, and there are two 40A current limiters running off of the ONE +12V rail. That seemed to me to be what the label was saying, and the label is correct.
Cons: I agree the label is misleading.
Other Thoughts: The label really should be changed to reflect this, but this power supply is a single rail design. So don't be bashing this thing for having dual rails. It only has one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: There is some question in the reviews about the rails. The sticker does seem to indicate two rails. But the sticker also seems to indicate ONE +12V voltage rail. If this was a true dual-rail design, then there would be 960W available at +12V. As the total wattage available at +12V is lower than 960W, that indicates to me that it is a SINGLE +12V rail design with a couple of 40W current limiters.
There are very few power supplies on the market that actually have multiple +12V rails. For every 100 that claim to have multiple +12V rails, probably one or two of them actually do. One such is the Sirtec built OCZ Modxstream 500W, recently discontinued.
Could this Seasonic 850W HT Silver unit have multiple +12V rails? We won't know until jonnyguru or pcper or hardocp or the like disassembles one to find out exactly what is connected, and WHERE.
But judging by the label (and Seasonic tends to have accurate labels on their own builds) I'd say this is a single +12V rail.
Cons: Label is misleading though. It seems to indicate both a dual +12V rail design, and a single +12V rail design. So who knows?
Nobody has really reviewed it yet, that I can find.

Pros: Cheap, fast, high WEI
Other Thoughts: Several months ago, made a mistake building a custom DVR, ordered a single-channel (1 stick) kit of RAM (thought it was dual channel, ooops). Since then, I've had hesitation problems. The system worked, it just seemed a bit sluggish. Found this wintec ampx DDR3 1333 kit on eeebaaay about half price. Figured I had nothing to lose. This was the perfect fit for my DVR with a Foxconn A88GMX. No more sluggishness, WEI is maxed out now...and I can record four high-def channels at once with no problem at all. Wintec, you rock! Never tried this RAM brand before, but will definitely be buying it again. It even improved my video performance! I should have guessed that would happen seeing as I'm using the onboard...READ FULL REVIEW
