02-07-2002, 08:23 AM
for those of you who don't want to short out the pins and have the second PSU tunr on and off with the main one this (http://www.moddin.net/review.asp?ReviewID=34) product is for you. I saw this and I can't figure out why no-onethought of it first. when the molex get's power it kicks on the second PSU, sounds simple but why didn't I think of that :)

the only place so far is overclock UK (http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Overclocking_Accessories_27.html) , the site that has the reveiw must be getting hit, that page is down :) Oh well it's 12 pounds. Funny we would have to pay shipping over here for a change. I will see if any americans have it :D

Well, them SOBs at Plycon will probably have first dip on these wonders, but charge $20. Excellent find Cats.

Looking at it.. it would be easy to build :)
Just a relay that's triggered by PSU1 on the molex, and the relay crosses the pins on PSU2's connector, turning it on :)
I acutally WANT a 2nd switch for my 2nd PSU (when I get aroudn to building that case). But I guess it's all personal preference.

Damn, that's pretty slick Catz. I don't know what the exchange rate is so maybe one of our "over the pond" members could comment.
