Ah, unregulated. That makes sense for an AB stereo, pretty common. You had me scared for a second there though.

So anyways uh... how 'bout them 12V supplies what for the miners and stuff?

My PSU is running Nicely!

I modded it a bit Smiley took me about 60 Minutes...

I will make an tutorial when i get the time to do it.

BTW, i do not care if the power supply dies or not (it will probably not, a power supply should stand more than it is rated for...) it just cost 30$....

edit, it's a cooler master, it was cheap because it was on 75% off sale......... x)

That's interesting, I haven't seen a major brand like Coolermaster sell a new sub-Bronze non-universal input PSU in awhile. That's got to be a really cheap unit. Tongue

Quick question:
Thinking of getting these units to power a few new S5's for fun and giggles.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/232209760646
Seasonic X-850 Watt SS-850KM3 850w ATX/EPS Power Supply *6 PIN PCI-E*

My question is:
Will this be ok to use?

I mean the others i have running fine, do not use the 2 pins anyway, and as far as i can read, they arent really used by the miners, strictly a 8 pin options for psu to miner 6 pin, right?

Appreciate the honest answers in advance

Most miners including all of Bitmain's only use the 6-pin PCIe connectors. If there is a 2pin 'flyer' on them (2 more returns) the flyer is only for GPU's that might need the extra grounds and is not an issue.

Do NOT confuse them with full 8-pin connectors EPS you may see on a PSU. They are used for some mobo's and have 4 wires each for the positive and negative and are polarized differently!
