    Two PCs on a Single PSU (Bridged PS_ON)

    I wish to run a pfSense mITX router and a Windows Home Server mATX build off a single Earthwatts 430w. I know the PSU is capable.


    I plan to make a 24-pin => 24-pin + 20-pin adapter.

    The PSU...

    The Vdrop is 1.26v for copper and 2.46v for aluminum. Doesn't that seem like a lot?

    18AWG Maximum Safe Power

    Hi, I plan to do some custom PSU wiring. I want to run 4 HDDs, 2 optical drives, 2 120mm fans, and a 1 40mm fan off one line.

    Accounting for peak/spin-up load, I think it will be around 90w on...

    Modular is optional but one can hope. ;)

    I would have gone with an EarthWatts which is decent and under.... $30. Of course, the fan layout does me no good.

    Suggestion for a PSU for a SFF Server

    I would have to say the 520HX will definitely be able to provide more power if needed. While both Seasonic units, the builds and internals are different.

    Thanks Tazz. What are they using for a liquid? Is it water?

    Comments on NorthQ Siberian Tiger Review

    Hey Tazz,
    A few issues with the review. Please take this as constructive criticism:



    Cold plate would usually imply phase or TEC. Base plate would have been a better term.

    Thanks for the response.

    Hmmm... what other components use the +5v rail? Optical drives won't use much idle. Hard drives use less than 5w (if that). PCI cards use maybe 3-10w sometimes.

    7-Volt Mod Safe?

    Is the +7v mod safe? This is using the +12v and +5v line differential to power device(s). I plan on powering about ten 120mm fans so that's about 4A. Will it affect regulation or anything?
