    I've been able to determine that my problem is definitely not in my power supply, there's something between the computer and the brain output that is causing my issue. I've tried 6 different 12V wall...

    I don't think that's the problem. I have this problem regardless of the number of relays i'm running, and the frequency of the dropout on any given output doesn't increase with more relays. In fact,...
