Can u run two PSUS in one motherboard

I have an EVGA 1000 Watt and a Thermaltake 750 watt, can i use them combined for the motherboard then use half and half to run my gpus, because one alone cant run my gpus, so i want to use one just for pcies, and connect it to the motherboard with a splttter so i can Turn it on. Will this work?

  1. I have seen computer cases that take up two PSU slots. So you should be able to, but you have to find a computer case for that.
  2. I'm not sure if it works that way. I could be wrong though.

  4. yes you can do it, as long as the motherboard and everything else is getting sufficent power, i don't see why not, don't understand why you would want too though
  5. What/How many GPU's do you have that a 1000w PSU would not be enough?
  6. I bet we're talking about a Litecoin mining rig here, with a truckload of 290x cards

    @OP: if your home is like mine, you need to be careful not to exceed 15A*110V. Plug each PSU in a different circuit.

    I would do this, because i have an extra 750 watt, just lying around, and the gpus cant be powered by only the 1000 watt so i need the 750, to supply power to one or two.

    Not a litecoin rig but a mining rig, but it's half gaming and half mining

    GTX 770, 6950, 6670, 290 under full load they exceed 1000 watts, plus my liquid cooling and such. And i have the 750 lying around, and the case i want to get has two psu slots
