dual output power supply for dual PIII motherboard
Posted on 2006-03-22
I acquired an oddball AMI (American Megatrends) dual PIII motherboard that I was planning on using for number crunching.
I found a suitably large chassis to install it in and 2 spare PIII (slot 2) CPUs to use in it.
However, there are 2 separate 20 pin power connectors on the board, 1 for each CPU. I acquired the 2 VRMs necessary for it (that was a mission in itself).
I looked on google and webcrawler for "dual output computer power supplies" (and variants thereof) and had no luck in finding such a beast.
My other option was to get a beefier power supply and a second 20 pin connector and splice it to the first (rather than attempt using 2 separate PSs).
I would prefer to find either a Y-type adapter to keep it clean OR find a proper PS for the project.
