Connecting 2 ATX PSU's together - FrostyTech.com Connecting 2 ATX PSU's together
Thu Oct 05, 2000 | 12:29A| PermaLink
"Why would I want two power supplies (PSUs) in one computer, is this guy crazy? I hear you ask. Well I wouldn't dispute that :-) but many of you will need either an expensive powerful PSU or two cheap 230/250W power supplies if you continue to upgrade your comp. The Athlons now take up quite a bit of your power. Add a few PCI cards and a couple or five CDR / CDROMS and you're about to blow your poor old PSU. Now add a couple of USB items and you're really pushing the poor thing. With the advent of RAID arrays you are looking at 80W+ just to start your HDs up. Whoops, you have blown it for sure. Oh no my comp won't work, what should I do? Well, you can either go out and buy yourself a brand new, very expensive, powerful PSU or you can rummage around and find a couple of cheap lower powered PSU's at around £10 to £15 ($15-$22 USD) and link them together. Preventative maintenance is far cheaper than the cure so if you upgrade before you blow your PSU you will already have one PSU."
