Splice the cable.Originally Posted by matthewshaw
Hi guys! I've been lurking around the forums for awhile and finally decided to join. I havent built my system yet and just started doing up a diagram with all the parts and how I'am going to wire it. But I've come into a problem.
The monitor that I'll be using is the TM-700TS and I'll be using the Opus 12Volt DC-DC 150W ATX Power Supply. My question is how do I power the TFT through the PSU if all the connections are taken. The only thing I can think of is use the 12V connection that is used for the hardrive but that will already be used up right?
Thanks Matthew Shaw
get a 1 to 2 adapter. Or splice the cable.
You're using the floppy connector?
what you dont have a floppy drive in your car? for those one hit low bitrate wonders?
Good point!! Thanks manOriginally Posted by Altimat
Just to double check. So the T-View TFT can use an 8pin connector to power it? And if not how do I power it?
Cut up a molex splitter and add a connectoer for the display. This allows you to disconnect the LCD if you need to.
One like this
this allows you to avoid cutting the PS and lets you swap parts if needed

Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!
Read the FAQ!
Thanks for the link man. Just wondering if theres anyone out there with the same monitor, how do you power it? To clarify again I dont yet have mine.
You can easily mod the cables. You can get the wire out of the connector with a little needle and a little patience. That's what I did so I woudn't have useles cables in the case, and for the looks. So far, from my PSU I have powered: 3 monitors, slim DVD drive, neons and a USB hub.
To power the screen you need a 12V line and a GND line from the PSU. Then you connect these to the "+" and "-" from the screen cables through a connector.
