Hello every1! I got this problem... my friend just ordered a new rig that consumes alot of power and i was wondering if there is anyway to use 2 powersupplys for his rig. The problem is that i am not very comfortable when it comes to electricity and such and i wonder if i can just have 2 power supplies on eachother. Meaning one is starting with the computer and the otherone is started by flipping the switch on the backside of the PSU.
If this isnt working i would like a really in depth step by step guide on how to use 2x power supplies on one computer.
I've heard from 3dgameman (youtube) that you can setup 2x PSU's with a dual PSU adapter cable, i however cant find this in any swedish store... i am also wondering if i can use the PSU he ordered with him (Corsair ATX 1200W PSU) and his old 650W one or if it has to be the same.
I kinda need the PSU to be working the day after tomorrow since that is when the parts come and also the day when me and my friend are going to a big LAN party with over 100people sitting in a local swettin' and playin so i can order one of these but i cant use it until it comes and i need a fix that works in the meantime!
And for that SATA power connector what i meant wasnt to get a new one. What i meant was taking out one of the male connectors from it and solder it on a cable to make one of these "bridge" cables that goes over from the 24pin's green cable to the black one. But i just looked at a PSU now and realized that it wont work. the male pin is way too large.
