Daisy chain power ??

Hi all,

Wiring up my upgraded machine and trying to keep it tidy and out of airflow, was wondering if it's possible to daisy chain the power to :-

1/ CD/RW
3/ Floppy Drive
4/ 2 x Hard Drives
5/ Graphics Card

without any problems.

Am running a GlobalWin S/Silent 520w PSU

As always grateful for any and all comments.

Regards Bob

But not sure if you can have that many on one connector.

The floppy I believe uses 5v and all the other drives are 12v

You must use the floppy connector only for the floppy.

A good config would be
I cable for 2x HDD + splitter for graphics card.
1 cable for optical drives
1 floppy

Use cable ties to tie them all together neatly and push them as far back in the case as possible to optimise airflow.

Thanks for response,

I think the 5v floppy is just the wires
rearranged on the connector, think i'll stick with your suggestion don't wanna toast it.
