Can you run multiple mobos off one power supply?? Answered
I was wonder, as I have a whole box of assorted pentium 1's (although I still have to gather up the processors around here, I also have an old p2 sitting here somewhere). I only have a few power supplies, and really, getting more power supplies isn't a problem, but they can consume a bit of power all together. I was wondering how many motherboards it would be possible to power off say a 300 watt power supply? I was thinking of splicing some additional mobo power connectors in off other power supplies. I want to just run these all open and don't plan to use them for much more than giant hard drive controllers (4 hd's to a mobo isn't that bad, wouldn't take up much more space than 4 external usb drives).
