Rather than buy 1 big power supply I want to connect two Power supplies to work in one computer. I know it can be done just want to know how to do it correctly. I want one PS to run just the video cards (and maybe the hard drives)and the other PS to run the motherboard. I am going to be putting this in a huge (4 space) rack mount case that has tons of room and a a lot of cooling with a seperate compartment for the Power supplies. will be using the following components
Maximus Formula SE
Quad Intel CPU 1066/1333 not sure yet - I can wait for the 1333
Dual ATI Video cards
Intel Matrix Raid 4 HDD's
I'd prolly get a toggle switch that would be hooked up with 1 PSU, that would be hooked up with the green / black (24 pin molex) wire (back PSU switch would be left on). While the other would be hooked up with the MB and be turn on like normally would.
Thanks, That is the solution I was looking for. One of the good but former Techs Guru's at Compusa (Brian Downey) had done it but he has moved on and I do not know where to find him. I knew it was an elegant simple safe solution. Thanks again IR_Efrem for the find.
