I have four optical drives and three hard drives running off of a 300w Aopen power supply. While in all actuality they cannot run at the exact same time with one CPU you as a human would not be able to tell because of how fast a CPU spurts out instructions.

Oh and you can run a fan on just the powersupply but all ATX power supplies are made to only work with a motherboard connection so you will need to short the green wire on the motherboard harness to a black ground.

You can get a 250w PS for $12 shipped by checking here:


I will not vouch for the quality of these devices but it should be just fine for a few fans. Also I would not do any of this unless you are familiar with basic electricity and computers.

One more thing is to make sure you get a pass-through molex connector for your fan if it does not already have one. These are the white connectors that plug into your harddrives and optical drives. You will need the male end so you can hook it up to the power supply. Best bet is just to buy a fan that already has these attached.

Sorry for being so vague and misleading - too high last night I gues :-) What I was trying to say is that your CPU will not be able to use 2 HDs at *exactally* the same time since most processors can only run one process/thread at a time. You can of course do things on different drives "at the same time" merely because you computer is fast enough to manage accessing both of the drives without you knowing it.

The funny thing about junkies is that they rarely leave any evidence...

Shouldnt a P4 3.06 processor run 2 hard drives if hyper-threading is equipped?

...hypothetically speaking of course.
