I follow this comunity from a while, but man I had to post something on my earlier configurations that I really can define "ghetto" rolleyes.gif

DOUBLE PSU with only one main switch









In the secondary PSU, you can see a relé used to enable the power ON at the same time. The relé is activated using one of the molex of the primary PSU.







For who is wondering, that "set up" was used a lot of time ago, just to test an ATI X1950GT because I had not a PSU enough power at that moment.
The test run smoothly without any issue, and don't worry about safety, the system itself is still alive (in a box) but wasn't used anymore.




I have moar of ghetto-stuff like this, if you want I can easly post something more!

Greetings from Italy.

Very professional! The molex looks like it's supposed to be there. Would love to see more!

Thanks to you too smile.gif

Well, I used some spare 3 wire cable to connect the power connector of the first PSU with the second one.







The real problem was to enable both the PSUs to start at the same time (the reason is because each power supply was plumping one of the two molex of the GPU).
It was solved with the car relé, wich il connected to the molex connector you can see in these pictures (which takes the 5V from a molex connector from the first supply):





So at the precise moment you start the first power supply, with the normal switch, he delivers the 12V / 5V / 3.3V to all the connectors, and at that moment the molex turn the relé on, so the second PSU can starts as well, so basically they turn on at the same time biggrin.gif

I'm like, 90% sure you want to say relay instead of relé. But either way, that is certainly a novel way to use two PSUs in tandem. Nice clean job, almost looks too nice to be in the ghetto rig thread! thumb.gif
