My System Specs

Default Additional PSU

Quick query guys.....if someone were to run an additional 2nd PSU, what does the 24 Pin connector look like that is required?
I think I saw what it looks like once, basically a 24 Pin Splitter one end plugging into the Mobo, the power supply connectors plugging into 2 ends.( like a Y Splitter), is this correct? (Or is a "jumper" all that is necessary)
If anyone can find a link to the required cable on NCIX, FrozenCPU etc...would be much appreciated.

Cheers
RJ

Easiest way is connect the green wires together and a black wire.

For more complex get a relay involved.

Can't find one on NCIX, this one's on FrozenCPU. Lian Li Dual Power Supply Adapter Cable - FrozenCPU.com

They work, I used one in my TJ07 back when I was running SLI GTX285's. Basically the black wire ties the grounds together, and the green wire gives it the start signal from your motherboard / power switch.
