two smaller, NON-GAMER ATX PSUs and easier to build a black box to output the higher voltages.

If they were two truly independent sources that did not share a common ground, you could do it, but alas, precisely because that's what you'd want, Murphy ain't giving it to you.
As I seem to recall the 24v is the standby rail, so may as well just leave it fired up all the time. unless you wanted to set up something silly that dropped the voltage down to 5-10 when the 12v rail was inactive. but really.. *shrug* May as well just put in a switch or flip off the power bar it is on or something.techknight wrote:if you wanted to get fancy, you could run the 24V output through the normally open connection of an automotive relay, and power the relay's coil from the 12V power. So the 24V feed doesnt come through unless the machine powers on.
