Ok... That post was confusing. I'm not sure if you're supporting his idea or going against it...

4 pages and no definitive answer? sheesh...

Yes it's TOTALLY possible and not very difficult either... all you really need are a few male-to-female molex cables (like off a cheap fan) and some male-to-female serial cables...

For the cables with only 4 wires (molex/floppy , 4-pin mobo, sata):
1) cut the molex male-to-female cable in half
2) cut the appropriate cable as close to the PSU as you want
3) solder the male end of step 1 to the cable near the PSU - MAKE SURE TO HAVE THE CORRECT VOLTAGES LINED UP
4) solder the female end of step 1 to the cable you cut off in step 2 - again, MAKE SURE TO HAVE THE CORRECT VOLTAGES LINED UP

For anything with more than 4 wires (PCI-E, 8pin mobo), do the same as above but with a serial cable (you'll have 9 pins at your disposal with the serial cable)... because you'll be dealing with more than 4 pins, you are going to have to be even MORE cautious with lining up the correct voltages

So long as you line up the correct voltages/wires and insulate properly, you should have absolutely no issues ... You will also be unable to shock yourself cutting the wires - it's only the large capacitor inside the PSU that is capable of delivering a life-threatening shock even if the PSU is off

Also, if you end up chickening out a bit, I'll be glad to mod my 600W GameXstream to be modular and trade for yours

Rofl. No joke eh? 40 posts and no yes or no.

While I don't think I will do it on this $160 PSU, i might try it on my dad's dead dell PC PSU

I eneded up just smashing the wires into a bundle and wedging it under my HDD tray. It scratched my acrylic case a lil but it looks alot better now lol


The replies are interesting and gave me a few ideas, thanks guys!

I though I said it would work a while ago

Also, listen to Duckie. If you do this make sure everything is securely fastened and connected to minimalize any voltage drops.

Methods dang you! Methods!

Also, I confess.... I didn't read through the 4 pages - just saw that on the 4th page, and still saw doubt/electrocution concerns
