    I just ordered a Thermaltake 450 vga drivebay psu for my GTX480 ive bought to run in my MP. (dont wanna run the risk of burning out my MP before its due for a change :) anyways, obviously the included atx adaptor isnt going to work to start the psu on the touch of the power button.

    so i am talking about the 2 pin (green_on) switch, anyone know the pinout of the MP 2008 PSU so i can slide those 2 wires in there and can still use the single button to boot on both PSU's?

    cheers

    (i know, i know, my gear is in Dubai atm, i am just stocking up on a few things before i head over as they may be difficult to get over there. :)

    Easier to use a sata to molex power adapter then use optical drive power as switch
