Combining two ATX cables
Working with two power supplies. An ATX ps from an xbox (AC), and an ATX DC power supply. I was wondering, if I were to connect the two power supply’s ATX cables right as they are plugged into the xbox… would there be a problem?
I wasn’t sure and haven’t tested the running/off power supplies with a multimeter yet. I think there’s a 3.3v constant, and if so, wouldn’t that mean by splitting the ATX cable I’d be running a live wire to that 3.3v resistance and could possibly blow the power supply? Or would the resistance from the xbox complete the circuit with no worries, and it would only blow with one power supply being on when the xbox isn’t?
the xbox has a standby and signals of 3.3v
atx power supplies with 5v standby and signals.
you'd most likely fry the board
edit: this poped up on the front page and i just realized its says 2005 on the 1st post. so wtf
FOR THE WIN.
THX. You are correct.
5v would kill my xbox, so i had to get a neat little thing to convert it down.
my buddy at work and I use that all the time now... so it just felt right to call you a noob, compnut haha!
wow. Great post.
my buddy and I say HURRJDJHDHA all the time at work and them I masterbate into his hair, so I decided this would be a good time to say HURRJDJHDHA and masterbate into your hair scott_fx.
