    Judging by two-pin cable all it does is probably just tells the second PSU to start-up if first one is online too, haven't seen anything like that on other PSUs with the exception of Phanteks ones but it should be pretty easy to DIY.

    What of the voltage regulation issue? Normally two power supplies might 'fight' on voltage regulation, resulting in unequal load distribution.

    Yeah, no idea how Phanteks manages this but in this case it's not an issue since they're completely separate, just start-up simultaneously.

    One could use a master switch for that; I have one on my TV so some small fans I use to keep it cool only run when the TV is on.

    A PSU still wouldn't start by itself. This feature apparently can be used for multi-GPU systems where one PSU is not enough, again, what i think this little wire essentially does is that it tells 'slave' PSU to start-up, essentially passing through PWR-ON signal from motherboard (shorting of green wire and ground). You can DIY that by making a Y-splitter from case power button with one end for motherboard and second end to short slave PSU's green and ground pins, but hey, it's 'OC-link' revolutionary feature now !

    Edit: wait a minute, green and black pins should be bridged, not shorted for PSU to work, isn't it ? Well, in this case you'll need to modify 24-pin cable to include Y-splitter on green pin that goes to slave PSU too, it's a little bit harder ...
