    So after 10 years of building on single rail PSU's i decided (lord knows why) to use a multi rail PSU this time.

    Now the question i have is that across the rails it supports up to 53A.
    I have just purchased a Sapphire R9 290 Toxic, im aware through google research the PSU will be fine with this as it has the Amps to do it.

    My question is do i need to spread the connections across the rails? so use 1&3 rather than 1&2 to keep the load even and safe?

    You're going to have to use two different cables and connections on the PSU anyway, so they will most likely be connected to separate rails to begin with.

    Multi rail systems have come a long way and they're not exactly bad anymore. Those EVGA PSUs are top notch. I had one for a brief moment in time, and it was superb.
