dual system PSU

Looking for a budget friendly option for 1 PSU to run a dual set up (gaming/streaming) in one case.

 

if budget friendly doesn't exist, i get it, it is what it is.

 

only need about 750W but would like maybe 1000W just in case

 

anyone have success with splicing cables or using adapters you can buy off amazon?

 

im finding it tough to find 2x24 pin PSU options.....im hoping its just my lack of experience and knowledge.....

Just build 2 small computers instead of one giant one? This stuff has been done years ago but well it was pretty sketchy to do then and well no case manufacturer really makes 2 in 1 cases anymore that use 1 psu.

Just note it is a little harder to come by theses days since I believe they did stop making them but they are some still floating around out there.

Yeah.  Mine died.  :(

 

Then I heard about others dying and even melting.

 

I opened mine up and found there's absolutely no protection inside.  No intelligence whatsoever.  It just splits up the power.

 

Definitely two small PSUs is better than splitting one big one.

 

And there are plenty of cases out there that support two PSUs.

yes reading about some potential safety issues and with kids....cant do that.

 

case selection is flexible.  im looking at Phanteks Enthoo 719 ATX full tower.  looks like it can take 2 smaller PSUs but not sure if a Rog Strix x570-E gaming ATX and a Mini ITX would all fit.  trying to find layouts as i would rather have the idea of the build solidified before i buy parts and have to return them

Can I ask why you need 2 seperate machines?

Main for gaming/work/Trading

second for streaming.

this set up seems more in my skill set than trying to do one build machine and allocate cores of the CPU

The cheaper option would be to use virtualisation. I've recently done it, got dual Xeons and dual GPU's with 56GB of memory. Runs fantastic :)
