  1. Thank you very much! Making sure a cable can handle the current without excessive voltage drop is easy (bigger wires, such as #14). After all, the original wires going to each pin are only #18. Btw, the load plays the major role in determining how much current is drawn through a cable. The size of the size of the wires determine how much current can be safely passed through the cable and the size and length of the wires determine voltage drop.
  2. 302 reads and not one person can answer a simple question?
  3. Why can't I get a straight answer? I feel like I'm talking to an Amazon bot. Forget the blasted cable and answer the bloody question I asked, which is what is the OCP (Over-Current Protection) at each socket?
  4. You are also completely missing the point! Forget what I asked about running two sockets in parallel and read my reply to c-attack. Yeesh!
  5. I'm NOT asking about the bloody rails! Those ratings are right on the PSU, for crying out loud. Each socket on the PSU has their own separate overcurrent protection. It's like each socket has it's own little circuit breaker on it. The protection for each socket is there to protect it from the entire capacity of the rail going through that one little socket. You wouldn't want to be able draw 63A @12v through one little pair of pins (+ and GND), would you? Again all I want to know is how many amps is each 6 pin socket's "circuit breaker" rated for and is that rating for each voltage or for all of them combined? What on earth is so difficult about that to understand?
  6. 1. No, you didn't. You gave me the typical rating of a cable, not the actual rating of the overcurrent protection on this specific PSU. 2. Your answer didn't really address my question and I don't know how to simplify the question any further.
  7. Sigh. Let me simplify this for you all. Forget what I'm planning on doing. Just answer one or both of these simple questions: 1. What is the rating of the overcurrent protection of each of the six pin sockets on the AX760 PSU (not the rating of the socket itself or the entire rail)? Does that protection rating apply to each voltage separately or combined? 2. Can two six pin sockets on the PSU be connected in parallel to one cable without shorting anything out or damaging the PSU?
  8. Come on, guys. Surely someone can answer this. Additional information: I'm confident a 25A rail can handle the power I need for my peripheral devices but I seriously doubt one socket can handle that much current, which is why I have asked how much current a 6 pin socket on the AX760 can handle. I can easily make a cable that can handle the current I need but, assuming each socket is unable to handle what I need (such as being rated for only 15A, for example), could I run two sockets in parallel to get the current capacity I need?
  9. Items that use 3.3v, 5v, and 12v power with SATA or "Molex" power connections. I want to power a homemade SATA power strip I can plug 5.25" devices, such as up to 13 SSDs and one or two ODDs, into the power strip with short jumpers instead of having to run multiple cables to the PSU.
  10. A lone cricket chirps in the background.
  11. Excuse the necro post but I've used a magnetic DEMCIFilter on my HX750 for over five years without a problem. Just don't let it get so dirty that it significantly reduces air flow.
  12. How much current are each of the six pin ports on the AX760 rated for? Also, is possible to get more current capacity to a cable by connecting two of the six pin ports in parallel?
  13. Ok, I'm playing with semantics here but you did say "old cover and filter need to be removed" (italics mine). The point I was going for was one can leave the old filter in place if the finer mesh is desired. If I owned a 750D and got the new front panel, I would remove the mesh from the new panel and replace it with a finer mesh stolen from a DEMCI filter, same as I did with my 650D.
  14. The filter's not intended to be removed; that won't stop anyone from removing it permanently. Even if used with the original filter, or even replacing the mesh on it or on the new cover with a finer mesh (like I did on my 650D), you will have more surface area available for airflow than you did with the old, solid cover.
  15. And you are basing that on what? From what I've read, you can use the old filter if you want. If one can used the old filter and are concerned about pulling through two filters, I'm sure the filter on the new cover can be removed. On y 650D, I removed the mesh from the front filter and replaced it with a finer mesh.
  16. It depends on the volume of data being backed up in a given amount of time and the permanence of the backup needed. Anymore now, tape is no longer practical for small users. Only large businesses and government entities can cost effectively use tape backup anymore due to it's high cost. Tape backup is pretty much static. Access is slow and cumbersome. The big advantage of tape backups is large amounts of data can be stored in much less space than HDDs for longer periods of time. Many people believe RAID is a backup but, other than 0, the only purpose of all flavors of RAID is to ensure uninterrupted operation without loss of data if (more like when) a HDD fails. However, data can be lost for other reasons other than HDD failure, such as user error, hardware failure, viruses and malware, theft, natural disasters, etc. Only backups kept on media that are stored off the computer and connected only when updating the backups can protect against such things. And since all media can (and, eventually, will) fail, including backup media, multiple copies of backups kept in multiple locations are necessary to help ensure the integrity of data.
  17. I don't see why you couldn't do that. Or, if you have a MOBO with two USB 3.0 headers, replace both sets of USB ports and cables.
  18. Thanks! When I got my case, I laid my grubby, little hands on spare parts while I could.
