  • M1-ATX Power Supply in Dell Optiplex..

    Im trying to put this new power Supply in my Dell Optiplex GX260. http://www.cartft.com/support/doku/...-ATX-manual.pdf
    (for use in car) The problem is that it needs a M/B on/off switch. I think i might have to find to wires from the control panel or? Can somebody help me here?

              hmmmm, I just found out that the power connector on the optiplex, the wiring is different from that of a normal 20 pin power connector, are you aware of that?? I wasnt.

                so use a multimeter, figure out the pinout, and make an adapter

                    Yes.. There is an extra 12v for the MB..and it is a double 12v-dont know why!! We have to make an adapter.
                    The biggest problem is how to make a plug so we can take the pc out and use it normal-for updating aso.. Did you think about that?? Now I use an inverter so i can still connect it to "normal" power in my house. So here we have another problem...

                      Well I wasnt worried about using it in anything other than the car, as I have another desktop and two other laptops. What I would suggect though is not making the m1 popwer supply permanantly attached to the case, as the exsting power supply slips in and out easily, thats what I could suggest as far as that goes.

                      Do you have the pinouts for the power connector on the monther board??

                      Also the M1 that that supply enough wattage the factory installed power supply gives 160W where as the M1 supplies 90W

                          hmmm it seems looking at these that the power connector on the gx260 may be a normal ATX connector, I have been reading that dell hasnt been using proprietary connectors any more, any ideas??

                              The 20 pins are ok. We have to make xtra 12v power for MB.
