post #1 of 4
Thread Starter

i was searching on OC and i found this diagram. I have 3 inverters and the molex connecters for each individual one is daisy-chained to the GPU.


my question is: using this diagram can i solder 3 inverters with no loss of brightness?

I'm not a wiseguy when it comes to electrical mods, but i'm almost sure you should have a minor brightness loss, with luck it should be imperceptible. Still, wouldn't be better if you get one of those 4 port inverters? One of my friends bought one from Lamptron for his rig. I think the name of the product is lamptron elite something. I can check with him if you like.

Wiring multiple inverters in parallel across a single switch works just fine wink.gif
