Seems like a very nice little piece!

- The long cables can be a mixed blessing. In a cramped case it can be problematic to get the extra length out of the way.
- Single 12V rail rocks! (Especially when you can pull >40A from it, the high OCP isn't really a problem.)
- The low voltage on the 12V line at low load worries me. Did you check what happens when you load it even less? Extrapolation says it will fall out of specs...

Cheers
Olle

The voltage line that had this behaviour was the -12 V line not the +12 V line... Which isn't critical...

Cheers,
Gabriel.
