depends on the amps that the 12 and 5 is pushing...if the 12 is 25amps or more, you could mod something outside the case so you could have a seperate power supply to run a water cooling system...other then that...just sit it back as a back up PSU...you can never go wrong having a back up of anything...especially if something goes out after store hours and you can not get on the net to order what you need right away...

Water cooling system... dont think so, not near experienced enough to do that. i guess it will just become a back up psu

Thanks anyway.

hey, i found this website and it teaches u how to make the psu so that u can test things w/o having to plug it into ur comp's psu..kinda un-safe...but yeah, its pretty cool, a good idea if u have a cheap psu u dont feel safe putting in one of ur rig's LINK
