I have a extra power supply and dont want to spend a 100 when I have another thermatake 600 watt sitting in storage want to use it to supply power to my secondary card to do a crossfire.
so do u i turn on the secondary one first then turn pc on right?
Power supplies are not designed to turn on unless they are connected to a motherboard. You could make it work without via connecting some pins but you run the risk of burning your house down and or electrocuting any cats etc. So not recommended.
WELL IF MY HEATER WAS DRAWING 1800 WATTS SAFELY WHY NOT TWO VIDEO CARDS.
A heater designed to do one thing vs a jury rigged setup with a shorted connection to run a second PSU nothing like so shouldn't be your basis for comparison.
HOW MANY AMPS DOES THE 6970 8 PIN AND 6PIN CARDS DRAW
AND HOW MANY FOR THE DUAL 6PIN TYPE CARD?
i NEED THE AMP DRAW PULL FOR THESE IN CROSSFIRE
