Hello, so I've got a Delta DPS-650LB workstation/server psu that I'd like to mod to use as a gaming rig psu.
It has a total of 5x 12v+ rails @618w and combined with 5v & 3.3v at 650w total.
It has 2x 12v rails for cpu
and an additional 3x 12v rails for peripherals. What I'd like to know is if I can safely combine the 3x 12v rails together to get a combined 48amp rating so that I can run 2x HD6870 crossfired and all the rest of the peripherals.
12v+ cpu0 :14a
12v+ cpu1 :17.5a
(will use this to power a AMD Phenom II X4 970 oc @4.0 possibly oc @4.5 eventually. on a 8+2phase Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P)
idea is to combine these 3 rails into 1 to up the amperage.
Possible or bad idea?
Sys. specs planing to use:
AMD Phenom II 970 @4.0 possibly @4.5 in the future. (on xigmatek dark knight Push/Pull)
Mushkin 8gig ddr3 XP3-12800
2x HD6870 (crossfired)
2x 7200rpm hds
1x E-MU 1820m soundcard on pci + 5v
2x 120m case fans
I know delta is a great oem psu manufacture..so any ways am I in trouble doing this/stupid idea or am I safe? or should I save up for a new psu? I'd rather mod if possible to do so..(save some money)
