I just got done discussing a "power managment problem" with a friend.
Roughly what im gearing towards is powering a high end graphics card with high end CPU, example AMD-FX60 and 7900 GTX run in SLI. Also the system has 10 (ten) hard drives, 10 hard disks.
Obviously a 400Watt PSU wont handle all of this, right? So, how stupid or not is it to modify the case to have 2 PSUs. Of course it has to be a big enough case, thats obvious.
Will there be any sort of problems or negative outcome on having 2 really powerfull PSU close together? Aproximatly 1200watts total.
The scenario is that one PSU would feed the motherboard and video cards and the second PSU will power only hard disks and CD drive.
Does anyone see this layout as a hazard?
