  • Attention: Jeff Mucha, Moahdib, Sproggy

    I want to thank both of you for the time spent to come up with these great power supplies to help improve the mp3car community. (sproggy, Jeff Mucha)

    I currently have an Arise 865V PSU running an AT motherboard. I am happy with what I have but in the future I will be making my second box. I know that power is the main concern so that is where I am starting.

    I am ready to build the sproggy PSU but I am concerned about how good of a PSU it would be for the Shuttle FV-24. Do you all think that the sproggy design will power Shuttle FV-24, irman, dvdrom (possibly a laptop dvdrom), HD (laptop), and a processor fan. I have noticed that the sproggy will work for ATX boards but it says to be careful to not overload it.

    I want to get my hands dirty and make one of these PSU’s. I just want to make the one that will do the best for my new system. If the sproggy design will do the job for some processors with the Shuttle FV-24 ATX, then let me know which processors will work.

    I appreciate the help...

      Send me your shuttle FV-24 and all the other parts you want to power and I will test them for you (on the understanding that i can keep the parts ;-) ). Otherwise, how the hell should I know how much power all your parts will take.

        he he...well said. I think you should be just fine. The P/S that comes with the SV24 case isn't all that large. I think it is only 150 watts. Hopefully that means the board isn't all that power hungry because they usually leave a pretty good amount of headroom. Of course it all depends on the number of peripherals attached to it. If you measure the current draw over the different voltage lines, I'm sure one of these guys can give you a better idea of whether it will work.

          Hey, I'll take a free FV24! I built a supply that is similar to sproggys, and I am using the FV 24 with a celeron 400 and a Char-LCD and standard HD. My supply would work just fine. It only draws about 35-40 watts with this setup.

          If you are going to use the FV 24, (or any FCPGA) I would *STRONGLY* suggest that you get yourself a celeron 566. At 533 mhz they did a die shrink and came out with the 533A which dropped the voltage and current requirement. If you get a 566, you would be able to take advantage of the low power without having to worry about wether or not you have the A version. As you go up in speed, the processor just uses more and more power.

            Ok maybe I didn't want sproggy to come out of his cave and answer my question. That was the dumbest response I have ever read.

              well.. could be true,
              But how the H3!! should he know how much current those parts take ?

                I was hoping that someone that has a shuttle motherboard would tell me how they power it and if they think that the sproggy PSU would work with this motherboard. I didn't need actual measurement done just an opinion.

                  jssagie&gt; what version of the sproggy PSu do u plan to use ? if it's the latest one v2.7 i believe... i dont think you would have problems.
                  I power up a lot of devices with Jeff's 80W ATX DC-DC PSU and it works fine...

                  What are the specs on the PSU u plan to use? maybe then i can give u my opinion wheter u can use it or not.

                  Another suggestion for a PSU if ur looking to get one is the atx dc-dc from www.mgpower.com that is being talked about on a post by 2k1civic ( look under power supplies).... it's gonna be $98 and i believe it's close to 100W output. Very nice price for an industrial PSU with full atx specs. =)

                    Make the sproggy 2.7.3
                    Mastero is thinking of making some of the boards to sell, Any one here interested in buying one??

                    PS. He doesn't know he is going to get the boards made yet though..

                      I'd wait a little bit just because it seems that we're all in disagreement as to the best design for the newest power supply that will give lotsa power (specifically the +12V 5A rail). And from what I saw of the v2.7.3 it won't work anyways because there was electronics placed in the middle of the heatsink

                      And also when I made the v2.7 series I haven't tested it yet, and although I believe that it should work fine I haven't actually made any yet to test them, so caveat emptor

                      Gimmy a few days, I'm still exploring alternate routes. I should have something up soon.

                        Yeah right...
                        The component aren't in the middle of the heatsink, Have you ever considered making a custon heatsink???
