    Shuttle PC, I think I'm screwed

    Got a good deal on the Shuttle SK21G with 3100+ Sempron. Unfortunately, after opening it up theres a special connector that didn't come in the bag of the M2-ATX I bought. I came on here and through the search found out Opus happens to make an adapter for this with their 150w ps. Can I get the M2-ATX to work on this or no? Does Opus sell just the adapter and can this adapter be used with the M2? I really don't want to use an inverter, but I don't have another $200 to spend on a PS, especially after I already bought the M2...

    What are my options? Anyone want a M2-ATX for 85 shipped if I can't use it with the Shuttle?

    Just saw I can get the Opus for much less than 200 by not buying it from MP3car, so if I can't get the M2 to work I will probably sell it on the forum hopefully at not too much of a loss....first waiting to see if anything can be done with the M2 pending your guys advice....

    Shuttle SN25P proprietary plugs! arrgh! Need to adapt/make a Car PSU for it

    This thread doesn't seem to have much of a conclusion to the problem. How cheap are dedicated dc-dc 12v psu's?

    Would this work: "If you want a real clean solution Id get a female ATX connector to plug into the Opus' ATX connector. Then from the female ATX connector attach the connectors that are on the Shuttle PSU. Find the parts on the Molex site, they're on there somewhere, just have to look"??

    IMPORTANT NOTE:

    If splicing can be done, it isn't a problem because a close relative of mine is an electrician, so let me know if you guys know how to splice this together..?

    there is a conclusion to the other thread, u could splice the required 12vsb from the power supply, but what is the use of 12vsb, u have to look it up. but i think just a regular 12v should be sufficient to work/ check out shuttle website for specs ...
    and to splice it, u don't need to be an electrician, just pick up a compatible molex and just connect up . try it, it's easy.
