Looking around I see 336 Watts on a light system.

On the side of my psu


DC Output- +3.3v / +5v / +12v1 / +12v2 / -12v / +5Vsb
Max Output- 25a / 28a / 14a / 15a / 0.3a / 2.0a
Min Output- 0.5a / 0.3a / 1a / 1a / 0.0a / 0.0a

15A x 12V = 180 Watts per rail.

My bet is this will be troublesome. If it was a single rail, it might squeak by on a cool day but it is not.
