Of course this does not mean that we can pull 23 A x 4 from this power supply, because under this extreme condition another protection from the power supply would kick in (OPP, UVP or OVP) way before we would reach this point. Since we were limited by our equipment, we could not test what was this point, and that is why I posted that you may be able to pull more than we did.

I hope I have clarified.

Cheers,

Thank you for your clarification though I don't think we understand each other probably due to may lack of understanding of how OCP works.

Oh I see.

Open a new thread on our Power section with your questions about OCP that I respond you.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

Exactly! Asus wanted an 80 Plus certificate and therefore opted to label the PSU with a maximum power that provide values within those specs.
If they disregard those specs the PSU can deliver more power while still being within ATX specs.

I wouldn't deter you from using it. A direct recommendation must take many other factors into consideration, but the U-75HA might be on the short list.
