I want to power the new ASUS AT3IONT-I Deluxe in my van. The board has DC power built in, and comes with a 90W Adapter & Power Cord. Great for HTPC users, not so much for me. How could I power this board without using an inverter?
They also make a non-deluxe version which does not have on-board power or wifi...and is impossible to find for sale in the US.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Yes, that most likely will be the best way to go. I have found a couple of websites that may sell what I need when I determine the voltage. http://www.lindelectronics.com and http://powerstream.com seem like they may be helpful, but that solution is also expensive.
I ordered that board today and hopefully will be able to make some progress when it arrives.
You'll have to take a standard intelligent automotive PSU and cut off a hard drive connector then take the yellow wire (+12 volts) and the black wire closest to it and then connect them to the power connector from the included power supply.
The startup/shutdown control will just be taken care of by the power button header on the motherboard. Most intelligent PSUs just have a connector that hooks up to it.

that would work, assuming that it outputs the correct voltage.
but that would not auto power on/off the computer-- you need a inteligent power supply to do that
sorry to step on your toes PaulF...
the power will more than likely be 19v (power brick info - first place i looked)
ima go out on a limb here and guess that power brick is the same (19v?) as the itxion and mag from zotac, assume they are the same -HERE- is 1 power solution (read thoroughly cause its not perfect) that was reviewed.
P2140 is a bit over kill IMHO but so is the board for a car pc...
