    Is M2-ATX capable of powering these devices?

    Here is my WorkLog (new):
    1995 Honda Civic Sedan EX - My First CarPC

    The main question now is regarding the Power Supply.

    I need power for the MoBo (12v), for the HDD (5v), USB Hub (5V) and Screen (12V).

    Do you know how many connectors comes with M2-ATX PSU?

    Do I need any optional parts for M2-ATX or maybe another Power Supply?

    Thanks!!!

    I'm sure the m2 would be adequate. If I remember correctly the M2 comes with 2 molex connectors (hdd, cd-rom) 1 mini molex (is that what they're called?) for a floppy, and of course the 20-pin motherboard power connector. Also has an optional P4 connector you can get.

    Hi!

    But what about the Screen? What connector is used to power the Lilliput?

    Thanks!

    Make your own. Wire the pose connector for the Lilliput screen to a male molex HDD connector.
    Yellow wire is +12v and the black wires are ground. The red wire is +5v and won't do anything.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Hi. So I will get the HDD connector and split it in 2, one will power the 2.5' HDD and the other will go to the Lilliput.

    On the Lilliput side, I will change the connector to become a male HDD connector.

    Is that it?

    Thanks!

    don't the smaller laptop drives require a specific power adapter?

    not to mention an adapter to go from the 2.5" form factor to the 3.5" form factor for the IDE plug?

    That adapter usually has a molex HDD connector for power.

    Yes you are right. I've bought this adapter:

    For around U$15,00 and it converts data and power for the small HDD.
