I was wondering if I would gain any overclocking advantage of hooking 2 PSU's together.
I have a 300 installed and was going to use my ATX 250.

If you are going to parallel two PSUs, you really should use the same wattage units, preferably the same model and make. If you wind up parallelling the two different size units and they work out okay, let us know.

as long as you have a good PSU , there is really no advantage overclocking wise in having 2 hooked together , this is assuming your not running any TEC's or 25 fans or anything like that

If you have any questions, direct them to to AZZKICKER, he's done that.

BTW, AZZKICKER, don't get mad at me...

asmodean why did you go with the energymax instead of the Antec 400watt ps? Your temps are pretty good for a such a good OC. nice work! I am thinking about the Abit KT7A an problems with it?

Why not just have one PS running the drives and the other running the MB and it's
hardware (PCI/AGP cards)? Will this work?
