Dual Power Supplies

Recommended Posts

Bah I havn't been talkin on the forums in a long long time,

but I still check em every once in a while when I get a chance

so to let ya know first off I'm still alive...


2nd, I've run out of power cords it seems, and Im gettin

tons of stuff from my brother, like 5 scsi hard drives

and a jaz drive, an old emachine and a 200mhz server...

plus lots of other crap...

but I have 3 hard drives I want hooked up right now

I have 2 use my raid connections as IDE3 and 4 to do so ( I dont use

IDE raid anyway...) and I was gonna install linux (again) on my

6gig maxtor... so I stole a powersupply from another comp and

I want to place it inside my tower somewhere, and see if I can

possibly make it so I press the tower button for power and turn

on both power supplies.... is this possible? if so what do I need to

do or buy? thanx

Ya.. it would be possible, but would require some electrical work...


As far as how it would need to be done, it's been far to long since I last did any real electronic work... I'll see if I can find something for you tho.

I was thinkin that, but I didnt know if they existed and

how much they cost... are they effective?

or is there a way to convert other unused cords to this

type of connector?

they are effective as long as you have enough power to run the device. They;re like 2 bucks a shot.

bah I dont like spendin money...

but that looks cool...

plus I dono if it'd fit in my case...

I think Im either gonna try and rig 2

together... if that doesnt work I guess

I'll probly either try and get a power supply off

someone else... I have a 300w so I think I have

enough to support more stuff so I'll probly get those
