    What kind of DC/DC power supply this is

    Here is a pic from another post

    I have looked here and Googgled it but no model number. I also could not find it on casetronics site.

    Any idea how much power this can handle? Will it work with a FULL ATX board?

    Without knowing information about the PSU (namely the output), there's no way to know.

    And the formfactor of the motherboard has absolutely no bearing on the power draw. CPU choice is what determines the bulk of the power draw.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Hmmmm........

    http://www.casetronic.com/products/Products_DCPower.asp

    They don't seem to list anything over 120w, so if I was a bettin' man.........

    And that's 90-120w max. I'd have to say no (without any additional info) if you plan a full on P4.

    It's probably an older model. I'd contact the manufacturer to see if they can give you any help.

    Just an email away.

    After spending a few more hours researchinh it, I dont think it will work for a few reasons.

    Like greatwhite said, "not for a full atx p4". It also seems to be lacking the auto start/stop features the new ones seems to have. (No jumpers on board)

    I am planning on either a AMD Athlon 1400. (Full size ATX)

    or I also have the EPIA-M9000 here. (Never used)

    (I am thinking the Full ATX as I plan on going multi screens) and was looking at this..

    http://www.carnetix.com/P2140/CNXP2140.htm

    Or something like this http://www.opussolutions.com/index.php?p=product&id=49

    Anyone have any input on it?
    Should this be enough?

    I seem to recal something about the opus 320w not being available yet.

    Myself, I'd just order a dsatx and be done with it. Some nice features there. Nice small footprint, no issues running most p4's (unless we're talking a really high power draw system) intelligent statup/shutdown and it can interface through a brainstem. Nice.

    Just make sure you deal with the heat issues of a big system properly. And most fans are pretty noisy (that's why people go low power, to avoid extensive cooling schemes). I'm running a dell gx270 (p4 2.26) in the trunk of a chrysler intrepid, and I can hear it working away back there sometimes. Not obtrusive, but noticeable.

    All depends on what you're looking to use it for......

    Cheers

    I know it's on the site, but I recall someone saying it wasn't available for general purchase.

    I could be wrong though

    Maybe it is

    It has some nice features also.
