So I've noticed there is some difficulty sometimes with choosing an appropriate power supply for said socket earlier systems requiring a (monster by todays standards) 5v and 3.3v rail.
12V/24V to 5V 40A 200W Step Down DC/DC Power Converter
now I was thinking of using this in conjunction with a modern power supply, to my understanding, it will connect to the 12v rail, stepping down to 5v and boost the 5v rail by a maximum value of 40 extra amps
I can't see any problem with this, since it will be a common ground, but does anyone else see any issue that might arise?
