Quality.
And it only has 6 More amps, since the maximum amp draw from any one rail on a multi railed PSU is limited to 20 Amps..

So one single, large rail is far better than 2-4 smaller ones.

its true, its the main reason why PC Power and Cooling is so great, they focus on large 12v Rails over many little ones

The higher wattage partly comes from the additional two amps on the 3.3V rail..
(For the hiper)

So the silverstone I linked is still better.

Yea, its pretty shifty, especially since there are alot of multi railed power supplies.

But the highest quality ones of comparable price will have a single 12V rail.

Oh, I thought you wanted phase change as the cooling.
Nvm about the comment then.

Its one of the most extreme types of CPU cooling available (cots around $800 )

What it does is that it cools the CPU at usually Below 0 degrees, the Phase Change cooling usually helps with overclocking

I'm pretty sure that some of the Highest (like in the top 10 but not the highest) use Phase Change, the others use like LN2
