  • opus 120w - power in house

    I have a ITX set-up from opus. They put it together all nice and neat for me. I dont wanna take it apart to put a 120v (home) power supply in it to power it up and get my OS on it.


    can anyone recommend something that will let me plug on to the Opus p/s and plug right into the wall for power?

    thanks

        They dont make a 12v regulator that puts out that many amps. Max they have is 1.5A.

        A PSU is like $10. Then just do as DP said.

          Probably not at radio shack, but you can get a DC power supply.
          One that will put out the 10A you need will cost you a fair bit. An ATX PSU is far cheaper, and has more use than a DC power supply.

                  Radioshack have something you can use,but is not cheap.

                  And they are overkill too.
