"Ghetto PSU" Idea
« on: May 18, 2003, 04:35:59 PM »

Since i have been running out of molex connectors from my PSU in my case, i decided to get a second PSU connected up, but i blew out two extra PSU's trying it because i couldnt understand the guides i found. so i was thinking of sticking a paper clip in the green wire and the ground (like a test PSU) and just put it in my case and have the power cord for the PSU go out threw a hole i have cut

now is this a good idea or should i call it off if you have any links on a second PSU guide please tell me THANX IN ADVANCE

ROFL! just get a 1 -> 2 molex plug...it makes one molex into 2!  also...your nub for blowing out 2 psu's.  that idea with the paper clip would work though...i dont see anything wrong with that idea..

shiz.
They put a certain amount of molex connectors onto a PSU for a reason. Yes, you can add a few more, but you can't count on that as a long term solution unless you plan on blowing out the PSU and possibly a few devices to go with it. So, you mock him for taking 2 PSU's out, even though your own "suggestion" could cause a lot more damage down the road. Smart guy.

wow whos the smart one now...ok moron listen...if itook a 400watt psu...hooked 30 fans to it....it wouldnt blow. well...i dont know the max cause the wattage per fan escapes me...but there isnt a certain amount of molex connectors for a reason....there is just enough for the basics (ie. hdd cd dvd and a fan or 2..) as long as the wattage doesnt exceed the psu...its fine.. better watch what you post before you post it..

Shizno is so fresh.  Fix your attitude because you're not welcome w/ that tone. Didn't you leave GT like a million times?  and yet he still comes crawling back for more... looking for fights.

oye... :roll:  


molex splitters would be ok for things like case fans, but not if you have a drive farm going on in there.  if you going to do the paperclip trick for the second psu, your also going to need a "5v dummy load" for the 12v to reach full voltage. google for that, you'll find some info (yeah i know saying 'google for it' is cliche'), here is the http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=5v+dummy+load+psu+">link.
