You can spin up your disks one at a time if your hardware allows it. Making your hardware allow it can be tricky, but worthwhile. You can use a much smaller power supply. Low power is a virtue in a home server, just like it is for a commercial site server. When a disk spins up, it temporarily uses as much as five to ten times as much power as it does when it’s operating normally. That presents a problem when you turn on the power supply.
We would like to thank Antec for supplying the review sample. The glory times for our former PSU load tester, Faganas, came to an end. From now on our new set up consisting of nine electronic loads and a dedicated transient load tester will take the reins. However Faganas will still have some action since with its help we will conduct the Turn On Transient Load tests at +12V.
The Lian-Li Dual Power Supply Adapter is an OEM cable that will power up two power supplies when the motherboard is turned on. This cable can be used with both 24 pin and 20 pin ATX motherboards.

Hookup is easy as it looks.
I had my system running on an Antec 480watt PSU. 8 Drives (4 SATA and 4 IDE) P4 3.4ghz, eVGA 7800GS, PCI USB Card, PCI SATA/IDE Card, Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS, and 4 large case fans. I currently have a 550watt Antec in there with 7 drives now. Ockie is booting fine with 21 drives on a 750. __________________ 1988 Firebird Formula HAF-932, Asus Sabertooth Z77, i7 3770K, Corsair H60, 16GB, 16 TB, XFX HD6950 2GB, Win 7 Ultimate 64bit : Main Rig Silverstone Sugo SG02B, ASUS P5N7A-VM, E6750 2.66Ghz, 8GB, 2 TB, Lite-On BD Drive, Panny TC-P50S30, Win 7 Ultimate 64bit : HTPC Dell Mini 9, 2GB, 16GB SSD 80/40MB, Logitech V450 Nano Mouse, OSX 10.6 : Netbook iPad 3 64GB WiFi : Tablet Heatware ID: Zepher : 您的所有基地都屬於我們 "OMG, It even has a watermark" www.transamws6.com
Here's the top recommended manufacturers and models: Seasonic Undeniably the best, but also quite expensive. Seasonic also manufacturers the internals of some of the models offered by several other major brands (Corsair and Antec specifically). Modular:
If you’ve gone shopping for a power supply any time over the last few years, you’ve probably noticed the explosive proliferation of various 80 Plus ratings. As initially conceived, an 80 Plus certification was a way for PSU manufacturers to validate that their power supply units were at least 80% efficient at 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of full load. The 80 Plus program has expanded significantly since the first specification was adopted. Valid levels now include Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and a currently unused Titanium specification level.
