This is definitely not true. I have a /240 and a /133 open. They dont
share the PS. The only way I can imagine is to use a PS from a /200
(AFAIK, they do have the same PS). Especially, the /200 and /240 have a
5V/40A and 12V/2.7A PS.

For reference I give the part no. and model no.

part no. 30-32506-01
model no. H7878-A

The memory seems to eat the electrons (14bit ECC !!!)
