I have a dual-PSU build, I just use an ATX adapter, but I think the question was around starting an ATX power supply without the motherboard.

I may have read it wrong.

yeah, you can always hotwire (like you do to prime/purge your loops)

sounded like he wanted two running at the same time, one not connected to the board. if so, best bet is add2psu.

takes about 2 dollars to make the above @ Home Depot, if not.

Just only plug the devices you want powered into the PSU and use a PSU jumper.

I was talking about this:

Does what add2psu does, except it doesn't use a molex.

yep, but did they ever build any safety into it?

Not sure what you mean. That cable links two PSUs together, it only splits the two command wires enabling both PSUs to start at the same time when the power button is pressed, nothing else. If one PSU goes boom, the other is not affected. For power issues I have the Aquaero relay.

yeah idr anymore. there was a lot of talk when add2psu started releasing their stuff that it was the safer of the two products, between it Vs. a harness, due to the relay. I really like their newest one with the timer. It makes me wanna go back to using 2x PSUs just so my pumps and fans will keep spinning thru a crash/for a set amount of time after shutdown.

Anyway both products are good for most cases. Add2PSU is great when you want to hide cabling because the adapter cable is ugly as sin. On the other hand, the adapter cable is 100% foolproof and uses no extra connectors. In the end, it's a matter of preference.

The way I use the PSUs is one powering everything except for the GPUs and the other only powering the GPUs (dual 8-pin each). That way, if either PSU dies, the components are not affected.

^^ same way I used to do it.

everything but PCI-E devices on the small PSU, and GPU section on the big boy. (3x Gk110 @ 1.4 sucks a lot of power)

So upgraded to Aquasuite X.9 and I lost all my custom fan names. Also had to upgrade the firmware on my Quadro's for some reason yet never asked when I was on X.4
