DFI Recommended Power Supplies (UPDATED October 20th, 2006!)

Recommended Posts

I don't know how a PSU works, but SATA power does contain a yellow, orange, and red wire. The red is 5V, the yellow is 12V, so I don't know if it's connected to the 12V rail or not but it does have a 12V wire going to it.

 

Could be there for a future application maybe. *shrug*

I'd say it's definitely getting 12V. Wiki seems to agree:

I just don't know if all 12V power comes from "the" 12V rail (although it would make sense). Like I said I have no idea how a PSU really works.

 

Of course there's also the issue of whether or not the 5V and 3.3V rails are strong enough.

 

You can always get a secondary PSU and jumper the green wire on the ATX connector to a ground wire. Just use it for your HDDs.

I have a Lian Li PC-V2100 Case that can handle 15 hard drives and a Dvd writer. Is there a PSU that can handle this?

 

The rest of my specs are in my signature.

Dual PSU's & telephone PC P&C for their recommendation. :)

 

Zippy has many PSU's that would work, however they might not fit in your case.

 

EDIT:

 

SATA HDD's use the +12V at about 3A: http://www.seagate.com/docs/pdf/datasheet/...uda_7200_10.pdf
