« Reply #50 on: December 15, 2003, 12:29:34 AM »

ok ieR   the green has current running through it, 3.8 volts, the black is an earth, im trying to run two atx psu's as well, one modded with no plug but has teh green and black and molex connectors and another that is standard and plugs into a mobo, now i have a question about just splicing the two green and two black together, on the first page of this particular topic someone said it causes a little bit of damage to both psus, exactly how much damage? and what about the mobo, each psus puts out .5 amps, these combined will be a whoel amp could that possibly fry the mobo/?

My toolkit is missing and I was wondering if you could quickly use a paperclip for a hour or two?

Re: Guide: Powering Up a PSU for a CoolerMaster RS-500

Hi:
I'm trying to run a CoolerMaster RS-500 (Brand New) follow your instructions, but nothing happends. Also I've been reading some info on the web about PG pin, but still nothing happends. Really, Power Supply tried to start but that is all.
Here the configurations:
1) Only PS-ON to Ground.
2) Only PG to Ground.
3) PS-ON + PG to Ground.

Could you give any idea?
Thanks

Does it work plugged into a motherboard?

Also, keep in mind, on a 24 pin ATX PSU PS-ON is pin 16 and not 14

Are you sure you are grounding out the proper wire? It should be green.

I have an old FSP200-60P from a 7 year old Hewlett Packard PC.

I have tried connecting the Black and Green Pins on the 20 pin P1 mother board block, but does not work!  :(

ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET AN OLD ONE UP ???

Place a device on one of the molex connectors and then try the black/green trick.
