Modify A psu For DVD-Duplicator

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi

i bought a new 550w Akasa power supply.
it was good looking psu, eventhoug i have no data about its power capabilities.

but i have 13 dvd-rw on a tower and i need to modify this psu.

i have 1x motherboard 24 pin
1x 3 sata power
1x 3 molex power (10 sata power here)
1x 8 pin gpu power.

so i tried to use it like this by converting molex power to sata by multipling it.

it is not working at all :/ it is now worse than a random 200w power.

how can i convert this to have like 4 sata per cable or a reliable way to split the power to dvd-rw's normally?

do you have any power scheme of this psu's?

I wouldn't imagine simply splitting the connectors not working unless you did not connect them tightly.

DVDRW shouldn't use that much juice anyway. My file server has split connectors with molex->SATA for 8 hard drives and only pulls 90w from the wall or so, you don't need anything inherently beefy.

yes it consumes a lot of energy.
believe or not, when this dvd-rw's are working same time, most of 350w powers leak.
Dublicator companies offers 450w or more for this job.



  1. i'll simply connect 15 to 16 to auto start function.
  2. then use 3-4-5-10 for a molex
  3. and then 6-7-11-17 for another one
