Case Mod Question

Ok I'm planning to do a few mods to a case,

Windows,lights and other stuff.
Now here's the question?

I have a ATX 250 watt Power supply that i intend to use for cooling fans and a few other bits ,
the case has a 300 watt supply fitted,
And the 300 will run all hardware.

I need to know a way to rig up the 250 to run the extras as a power supply has to be connected to a mother b4 it powers up,

So does any one now a workaround that will let me power up the extra power supply to run my other bits and bobs, without using a mobo ?

So come on you guys get them old brains working and help a poor guy out.

Many thanks
best regards........Cupid
The case is a full ATX/server case, so plenty of room in there for it.

I did intend to mount it inside the case, the case only comes with a 300 watt supply and thought rather than get a bigger supply I would use a spare one i have lying around.

All the power cables in the tower provided will be used for hardware.

I dont want to put any of those cable splitters in to power other components.

I just need a way to power up another supply to run fans, cathode lights, strobes etc.

I'm poor the misses dont leave me much cash B***H

Luckily the case does have a second mounting plate for another power unit,

Thats the easy bit ;)

4 screws and it's in.

so your saying it has room for the other power supply?
ok put it in cut a hole for the new power supply cord and plug it in then plug all the doodads and whatnots into it
Thanks to all especially Freightgod i checked out that link,

Did the job just as i needed, many thanks.

Will probably post a few pics once the full case mods are all done.
Thanks again



all you need is a short wire. all you have to do is connect it to pin 4 and 6 with the clip of thge power adapter facing up and counting from top left to top right. if u connect pins 4 and 6 it will power on the power supply. koolance cases ship with a wire to do it so you can run the pump and test for leaks before you put your hardware in. if u need a diagram goto site and download the user manual

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
