Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
Hi thanks for super quick response, but there are four or five different power cords/connectors with different shapes and no.s of pins coming out of PSU (motherboard, DVD etc.). Which one should I be trying a find a splitter for? Just need two connectors to give 12v supply
You can connect the splitter to any of the 4 connectors that power IDEs(Hard Disk, DVD ROM, CDROM etc.,). The splitter's sole purpose is to split one 12v supply into two 12V power supplies so that we can connect two devices instead of one. You can disconnect the power from DVD connect the splitter to it and then use one of the two 12v supplies from the splitter to connect to the DVD drive and the other to the HDD fan.
