    dsatx help!

    Hello, im currently planning out my carputer and have started buying items for it. i am at the critical point, which psu to get? i decided on the dsatx because i plan on powering my machine, its various accessories and the screen. my question is this though, i will be using a mobo from a dell optiplex gx260 and here is the link for a pik of it with its connections

    i was wondering where would i plug in the simulated "power on" connection from the dsatx into it. the power button on this case is connected to a board which is connected to the mobo. can someone please help me how to connect the psu into this mobo, thanks

    The dsatx has a power on header for simulating a push of a button. This is usually triggered by the acc hookup. I just hooked mine up today (dsatx, not dell mobo) and it works fine. zootjeff will probably be along to describe it in detail, but you get the gist.

    How/where are you guys planning on mounting your DSATX? I've been keeping an eye out for a nice little prefab case I can mount it in, but I haven't had much luck yet.

    Mine's going inside my case, most likely.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I mounted mine inside my pc case. Fits quite nicely.
