    Carnetix P1290 or M1-ATX

    Just got a quick question...
    I am going to be buying the M10000 board and installing it in the C134 case, and when checking on the mp3car.com store they do not offer the P1290 for it, only the M1-atx or M2-atx...
    So is it not compatible to use the P1290 with my setup because in its description it says it fits MOST cases, just wondering if this is one of those that wouldnt' be right?

    The carnetix P1290 is only +12V output and +5V, you need a power supply with an ATX plug to connect to the M10000.

    So are you saying that it will not work if I get the P1290 ? No way of converting teh 12 and 5 V lines to an ATX plug ?

    Look at the power connector on the motherboard. Is it an ATX style connector with 20 or 24 pins? If so, the P1290 doesnt have that connector. It only has 2 output wires, 12V and 5V.

    If you dont know what an ATX style plug/connector is, and are your friends.

    The cheapest/most direct way of powering your rig with a regulated PSU with ATX connector is using M1ATX. If your power requirements exceeds that, try the M2ATX.

    The P1290 is meant for regulated powering your auxilary peripherals like TS, HDD, Optical Drive, USB hub etc

    The P1290 is not meant for powering auxilary devices, its meant for systems that only require 12V input (like certain commell boards, mac minis, travlas, sumicoms, etc).

    Go with the M2-ATX, same size as M1-ATX, but gives you room to power a whole heap of stuff

    Yea might as well go with that... just a bit more than the M1 but seems to be worth it
