So it souonds like it could be a bad idea.

I dont see much harm in putting my optical drives, audigy 2 bay, floppy drive, and fans on the test psu, leave hard drives, mb, vid card on the 550w. I would think this is safe and dont have to worry about damage.

I'll keep every one updated. I dont see anything happening with it. But I am not going to risk a hard drive at first.

I said I hooked up my two optical drives to the test psu. And so far no problems.

Both psu's are seperate. I might consider doing that over the summer. But that is more risky than doing what I am doing now.
