Why not use the opus to power the drive and the MB?
Well first of all im doing this,because all these parts i have lying around.
i have a 200w inverter and atx psu. Now if i short the psu PS_ON and a GROUND and turn it on and then always power my hard drive only of that and use the opus to power the mobo , is that going to cause any harm? I will use a common ground and only the hard drive would be powered of the psu, also is this going to confuse the opus?
i was thinking about doing this also because im trying to run a very powerful setup.
would this work?
titaniumkingpin, the easiest way to do a very high power setup is inverter/PSU with a shutdown controller such as http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=65 or http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=66
