Modding PSU Adfditional PCI-E line

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the title says whilst i was sleeving up my friends PSU and i noticed on the PCB additional solder holes on both 12v and the ground now my theory would be to take 3 12v holes solder wires and take 3 grounds and make a 6 pin line for his gpu because the use of molex extensions looks awful and additionaly the psu asfar as im aware is never at full load if so hardly ever heres some system details and see if you think this is possible.

Abit aw9d - max
p D 3.4 oc 3.8 1.33v
Asus 9800gtx+ DK
8gb ddr2
Evolabs 600w P4 model E

now i know that the evolabs aint the bestest built PSU but i think this could be a could addition and make for some better cable management

any advice is good advice so dont b e shy and thanks

If you don't care about losing (frying) the psu, go ahead. Could be a good experiment on an old end of life component. If you NEED the PSU, I wouldn't do it. That PCB is a generic one probably used in power supplies rated much higher than than, chances are you're going to fry something. Just my 2cents.gif

well i had an old 450w about a year ago and managed to add a fully working molex rail and did cause any problems , but as with the pci-e using 3 12v lines is obviously more than 1 for a molex hmm need a psu expert.
