Power Supply Question for a 1-11 Duplicator system using an Athena Controller



I’ve built a duplicator with 11 DVD writers and one reader controlled by an Athena.

Is it better to run TWO x 400W power supplies.
6 drives to 1 power supply, 6 drives to the other power supply.


Is it better to buy one hell of an expensive power supply and run all 12 drives from a single power source.

Currently I’m running 2 generic power supplies, and I haven’t had any problems yet, however I’m considering upgrading … but not sure if its worthwile.
