    Q: Help me out with power suply.

    helo, I have decided to power up my carpc with a AC-DC power suply for also using it into my house.

    Does a Shuttle SilentX 250W PSU works on my PCCHIPS m789CG mobo?

    And then, I have found a DC(12v)-AC(230v) inverter with following specs:

    input: 12Vdc(10-15)
    output: 230Vac
    Max power: 300W
    Usage: 400mA

    Will this say I can MAX use 400mA with this:s

    THX!

    The Shuttle power supply is ATX-compliant. So is the motherboard. Yes, it will work.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    This is it...

    1) And do I have to put any fuses in there?

    2) And isn't it wrong that on my inverter stands MAX 400mA?



    Thx

    yes you must use a fuse. and do not even think about using the lighter socket for power!!!!! Go read the FAQs on how to wire an inverter or PSU.

    As for the 400mA - seems like you only have a 100W continuous inverter. post more details.

    NO!

    you cannot use the cigarette lighter. it is not safe.

    oh and that pic is both huge and useless. ytou need to show the sticker on the back with the specs.

    how can you make it work? only run about 100W off it - max! iven then you will be pushing it for constant use.

    do yourself a favour and go about why people use dedicated wiring.

    not only will it be safer but more efficient and cause you less problems such as the inverter not getting enough power.
