Yeah i've got an old 200watt psu that ran my pc fine, I upgraded to a 350watt just to handle the 2 pci video cards, x-fi, 2x250gb drives,, 2x cdrom drives, floppy, and mobo, and 2x40mm fans, 2x80mm fans, and yeah.... It may eventually be a drain... So this will help me alot! +Rep for ya mate! Thanx!

I know, I know, double post, BUT


I tested this out! With a simple 200 watt psu, a 40mm "pentium 1" cpu fan... (found one, hehehehe), and some old wire thin enough to fit in the 20pin connector things, (barely, lol it was a tight fit).

It was simple metal wire, nothing to fancy, but did the job.

I plug'd everything in, EXCEPT the main power cable from the powerbar. (Left for last).

I "removed" all flamable objects away from the powersupply, so as to make SURE it's moderately "fire proof" ish....

I plug'd in the fan, rigg'd the 20pin connector with the wire (it was like almost 1 foot long, but meh, didn't want to crimp or cut it to much more, barely made 1 end to work...and a 2nd was faster...fortuantely...).

Once all rigged, then I plug'd the power cable direct into the powersupply spot, THEN plug'd it into the "power bar". The fan "turned on" 1-2 seconds later tops, I ran it for 1-2 seconds, and amazingly enough, I have to say, it worked (No fancy connectors were required, though it's a good idea to do that, I didn't need to, in this BRIEF test).

After testing, I unplug'd it, I didn't want to "prolong" test it... because I don't think that the wire was "useable" continually with it... (figured it would be unwise to do so, especially not knowing what rating the wire was).

Also, I want to say, awesome tut, did the job, fantastic! Thanx!

Definately + rep material!

*Re: Rep*

Probably because your a director of sorts, reason why you don't see rep, is because you are the rep, hehe. aka Reputation points. Do you see a clickable thing on me, re: rep? If so, that's what it's about, otherwise we'd +rep you if it was possible

Nah, not really, see, the power cable itself has a grounding wire, and if you wish to, add some ducttape, or put the switch in, etc, create it however it best works for you. If you want to have the 2nd or more psu's floating around, go ahead, I just stuck it in an olllddd pentium 1 or 2 case... So it kinda made it easier to mount, etc. (Old beige white thing...evill...hehe)
