I have a Dell PowerEdge T410, with redundant 580W power supplies. I understand these supplies do load balancing (to some extent) but I was wondering if that means they can safely deliver over 580W? Obviously this would defeat the redundancy, as one PSU will no longer be able to power the whole system, but this won't be important for me anyway. (I intend to use it as a workstation.)
I am expecting this to be a no, but I'm pretty sure I need just over 580W.
The planned specs:
Dell PowerEdge T410
Dual Intel Xeon X5670
4x4+8 GB DDR3
EVGA GeForce GTX 950 Superclocked 2 GB
4x Dell Cheetah 300 GB 15000rpm SAS HDD RAID10
Dell PERC 6/i
Dell 580W RPS
CD/DVD combo drive SATA
Fedora 28 Cinnamon
(Yes I have researched the right adaptors to do this safely)
The purpose of this cobbled together system, is as a (home) workstation (mainly for virtualisation) which I can connect to four monitors and occasionally game on.
