Convert four 500w PSU to plug into 1 outlet (Possible?)

:hello: if i get 4 Power Connectors and hook up the 4 x "IN" to 1 x "OUT" and hook it up to a outlet will that tigger and thing bad like "Power Outage" "Fire" "Mobo Circuit Burst" "or will it not give "NEEDed" power of 1 or more "PSU"?

I want to figure out a way to have 1 single PSU to power up 4 mobos or 4 PSU hooked up to 1 outlet..


of corse i would have to split up the "IN", "OUT", and the "GROUND" correctly... any thoughts of ideas or even suggestions?

  1. You are wanting to pull 2Kw from one outlet. :ouch: Keep your fire extinguisher handy. :) And be ready to explain to the insurance company how your equipment configuration meets the Underwriters Lab standards. :o
  2. Yes, this is too much for 1 wall outlet, or even two if they are on the same circuit.

    You could do this if you had an electrician wire in a high amp circuit but I doubt you would find one that would do this in residential housing.

    I recommend having an electrician wire in a new circuit. This way if breaker 1 trips, only 2 of your computers go down.

    As for wiring 1 PSU to run 4 pc's, I dont think theres a PSU out there with enough amps on the processor circuit to do this unless these were low power cpu's.
  3. nooo the cpus will be either 4x i3-530 dual-cores or 4x AMD Phenom II X6 sex-cores.... i know it is possible to power more than 4 mobos on to one PSU but that is powered by a large 12V DC switching power supply. .... hmmm.. :o *slap in face* :pfff: but i dont want to use that much space.

    why im asking cause i want to configure a cluster .i planing on build for High Performance VMs
