dual psu.....is it possible? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Of course, if you start pushing a 1200W supply with all of the lighting and fans and hard drives - one can run the fans and lighting off of a separate supply, like a wall wart, that doesn't need the tight, hard core regulated voltages that the computer would need. And a bunch of hard drives might be better as a separate NAS, with a single, fast hard drive local to the system for the OS and any games or software that need the highest speed.

Completely unnecessary.



Just don't, it's a waste of time and money 90% of the time, and a danger to the system the other 10%.

You dont need more than that 1200W. For example, a quality 850W is definitely enough for this rig let alone 1200W.

It's not very complicated... but just because it works doesn't mean you should do it. Assuming your secondary unit doesn't like crossloads, you could be doing more harm than good. And as was said, you absolutely do not need that setup since you already have a 1200W unit. If you wanted to do it for the hell of doing it, then fine, but I suggest you don't keep that way.

Phaedrus actually did that with a voodoo doll.

I've seen RaidMax and Diablotek units "run fine" to the end user. That doesn't mean its a safe thing to do.
