Can you give us (me) a more detailed walk-thru of what you did to your PSU's? I see that you disassembled one and daisy chained them in some way. And while I am impressed with the electrical know-how to not blow them up, or fry other parts, I'll likely be more impressed if I knew exactly why you went that route and how, etc. Is the advantage here cosmetic? or are you bypassing the need for a PSU linking device?

Here you go! thumb.gif

The setup is basic, both power supplies are triggered at the same time via the GND short to PWR ON by the motherboard. Both of the PSUs are single rail so they are both bridged directly, COM(-), 3v. 5v. 12v lines to a wire block. The main PSU provides the power directly to the motherboard, PCI cards, and SATA plugs. The secondary PSU has two LEDs to show PWR standby and PWR on Status. The commercial power line filtering is setup to minimize any interference or noise to the power supplies. The only thing I didn't show in the diagram is the the AUX 24 pin motherboard connector that I added to the secondary PSU for later use.

Here is a quick diagram:

What's the point in the secondary psu?

At full load mt TDP is 1090watts and its always good to have upgradeability. And that TDP doesn't even account for all the lighting and accessories. thumb.gif

Back on it, prepping the main PSU for the wires...

Almost done with the main PSU! biggrin.gif My torch that I usually use for large leads ran out of fuel so I'm having to carefully use my soldering iron, hard to do without causing cold solder..... rolleyes.gif

Got the block mounted, I went with a NB EK block instead of the Koolance Ram blocks because the heatsink fins are too shallow and I think this looks better! I added studs to the bottom of the block, I filed the heatsinks and applied thermal paste, then I pressed the block on, the studs hold it real snug but the temps will tell!

I literally can say I have never seen a liquid cooled PSU. This is just getting more and more bad ass!

Out of all the novelty components you could have watercooled, you picked the one most likely to explode everything if wet... LIVIN' ON THE EDGE! thumb.gif

Thanks and both are liquid cooled, I have done it before its really easy actually! thumb.gif

Lol I have had that happen before, it just takes that coolant getting under the 40000v capacitors lol they pop like a bullet! But I would much rather it leak on my PSU than my mobo lol! tongue.gif

Well....... I got the wires completed and I did a final test and I noticed a significant V flux so in light of wasting time troubleshooting and replacing a VRM or VRPROM I decided to go ahead and replace it with a Cougar 700Watt PSU That I have for another project.... On the positive side this PSU has two rails and has more wattage..... It just sucks going threw all that again, I may use a wire block this time instead but we shall see..... rolleyes.gif
