    2 Power Supplies

    I've been trying to find information on connecting two power supplies up, But I havent come across anything as yet.

    Basically I'm trying to run 2 M2-ATX's together.

    I already hooked up the power, ground and remote. But I'm not getting any power out of it. Is there something I'm missing?

    I got it, I was just trying to get the second power supply runing to provide some power to an LCD and Hard Drive.

    I just had to cut the green wire on the 1st power supply and join it to the green wire on the second so they both would turn on at the same time.

    I'm having thoughts about running two smaller power supplies in order to power my PC (needs 270W) in order to avoid trying to power it normally. The PC case could easily fit two of the smaller M2 style "card psu's". Could you post a quick line drawing of how you have it wired?
