  • DIY Opus 150 5v Stndby power cut mod

    The purpose of this thread is to document with pictures and diagrams the Opus 150 modifycation that you can pay for from opus. This modification will allow you to cut the 5v power to your USB devices if you so desire without modifying one of the ATX cables. I belive they charge ~25+shipping

    To help accomplish this threads goals i will need to see some close up pictures of peoples Opus 150's that have had this modification done.

    If anyone has had this modifcation done and can trouble themselves to snap some quick pictures then please post them.

    Thanks

    I will be updateing this thread with the progress and hope to have a complete tutorial for the benifit of all users confident enough in doing it themselves.

    PS
    If you don't have a positive input or are not wanting to help with the threads goals please don't post. And if you are just going to tell me to use relays on the ATX cable save it. That is not what i am going for here.

    Nice Effort m8!

    It isnt about the 25U$, but just to send my opus half way around the world would be impossible/stupid!

      Yea its the shipping that kills and for 2 wires and jumper its a bit much for us who feel comfortable doing it ourselves.

      Here is a link to a guys website that has some pictures. they arent clear though

        Probably after the oct meet I will pull the opus out and try to get better pics of their mod. I know that the pics are not good, but in one pic of the bottom of the opus, the black chip is soldered and the wire that comes from the top is also soldered to the chip.

          Hey John,

                Antimatter, have you thought about mailing Opus and asking for an instruction sheet? You could babble about being in zambia or somewhere that takes 3 months for return of postage if you want an excuse as to why you are seeking an alternate way of doing it.
