Using a bare Power supply to power hard drives
I have a shuttle system with a small PS in it and want to run a RAID array off of it with 4 drives, which obviously won't fit in the system. But I can set them next to the system Ok and it will work. I'm concerned about power tho. Do you think I can get away with powering the hard drives with a stand alone bare PC power supply? What issues might I have?
I already figured out how to get the PS to come on by grounding the PS_On line. So I think this should work. Any comments?
