      I think arise sells DC-DC ATX power supplies, but I'm not sure, scour their site (the search key works well) and if not call them directly

        Since your motherboard only has an ATX powr connector (there are some motherboards with both ATX and AT) you will not be able to use an Arise power supply. If you already have an Arise power supply, look into getting a motherboard that will support your CPU and has an AT power supply connector. If you don't already have the power supply, take a look at the link on this post which are for ATX DC-DC power supplies.
        In the future, try looking through the other topics and using the search function - there aren't many power isues which have not been discussed at some point on this board.

            Take another look at the very first link on the page I mentioned:
            http://www.amtrade.com/pc_power/dc-d...r_in_1u_2u.htm
            The very first product on this page is for a 1U rackmount DC-DC power supply. The dimensions are 7.87"(D) x 3.94"(W) x 1.59"(H) which is very small. Also, the $85.50 price is good for a 150 watt ATX DC-DC power supply. If you want to go smaller than this, you will need to look into building a supply such as Sproggy's.

            Mike.

            OOPS...This supply will not accept 12VDC. There is one on this site which will, but the linl to it is not working.

              Guys and girls,

              I believe I have found a solution to our ATX mobo using AT PS. It is called an AT/ATX converter you simply plug the converter to the AT connectors and then that connector goes to your ATX board. This place in florida sells them for 7.00 but the guy said you should be able to buy them locally. He also said he has used them on a number of setups and has not had any problems with them. His store address is: RC Computers

              I'm going to try to find one local and see how they turn out. If this works man I will be one happy camper

                      I didn't bother ordering the converter cable because I couldn't wait for it to come in. So I have popped an ATX PSU in there and have called it a day for now.
