So while on an Amazon "do I need this" binge, I came across this.


The gears in my mind started turning, the dialup noises screaming, the two EVGA 450BT power supplies looking scared.

The HAF 932 has two slots for PSUs, so my question comes down to if this is even a good idea or not. It's rated to 2KW and I'm gonna be at like, half that. Good or bad buy?

If you're set on using 2 PSU's, buy.
Preference is a single, decent size, PSU.

I'll explain why if I need to, but you already know even identical hardware does not perform exactly the same. PSU's included.

This is more of "I have everything but a $10 splitter/jumper"

I replaced that with add2psu which is far better.

Searched it up. So second PSU goes in with a molex from the first?
Correct. 24pin goes from second PSU and first PSU connected to mobo use the 4pin molex or some models have sata.

I got three of these and they have worked good so far. I ended up replacing a PSU with an HP server grade one with a breakout board only cause I needed Ze Power.
