Server PSU w/ Two (2) eps12v (8 pin) connectors

Postposted on Mon Apr 26, 2010 11:38 am

Looking to consolidate our server infrastructure down to one box. Going with dual 8 core Magny-Cours. I need a PSU that has TWO 8 pin (EPS12v) connectors for powering the CPU's. I am seeing PSU's with one, but not two. The only other thing I am seeing is 2 X 6pin + 2 pin. Not sure if that is the same thing.

I thought this would be easier to find.

Thanks

EPS12V? I saw a few like this Athena 500W; does that help? I see two 2x4 connectors in the picture and a reviewer said, "It has 3x +12v and 2x EPS 8-pin outputs ..."

I saw a few more categorized under Newegg's server PSUs.

Trust me, I have been digging through NewEgg and ProVantage like a rabid, meth fueled gopher. I am now wishing for a listing of PSU connections :(

There are 8 pin connectors out there but usually for a Cross-Fire setup and they can't be used as EPS12v 8 pin cables.

I have a dual nehalem setup. Corsair hx1000 has 1x 24pin and 2xEPS12 8pin cpu power plugs.

Exactly what I needed. Exactly what you need.

Also:
6pin+2pin refers to pci-e video card supplemental power.
8pin EPS 12 for cpu is actually 4pin+4pin

Thanks, I was seeing plenty of 4 pin to 8 pin eps12v adapters. I just wanted a PSU that has it natively . I am surprised that it's as difficult to find as it has been.

fairly rare requirement for non-server PSU.

(99.99% of server sales are pre-built boxes with Manufacture warranty/ service contract)

good choice for you. $150 :

PS 750 also @ $120.

See jonnyguru for review:

750 will be enough for a bare bones Mangy-cours system.

But as you go up to 4p, massive memory, and multiple HD, you will need to do some calculations :D
