    Intel D201GLY2 with a M1-ATX?

    Help!

    I am using a mini-ITX Via C3 mobo with a M1 ATX PSU

    Now with the new Intel D201GLY2 available for cheap, I am getting tempted to replace the board
    However, the M1 ATX only has a 20 pins power supply cable (and not the 4 pin CPU power cable)

    Can i use the M1 ATX to power the D201GLY2 using a molex to 4 pin converter or something similar?

    any suggestions?

    There are 20-to-24 pin adapters for ATX PSUs available.
    I'd be more concerned about the ability of the M1ATX to provide the power necessary for that board.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    it worked fine with my non-branded 60watt psu that came with my case... i think the m1 will handle it.

    I honestly tought the M1 should have been able to power this board until I came across this:

    NOTE: Do not use M1-ATX as the D201GLY draws V(core) power from the 12V rail, therefore the M1-ATX might not work well despite the fact that it is a 90watt PSU.
    I got it from this website.

    So you probably gonna need a bigger PSU. As DarquePervert said. Many 20 to 24 pin adapters are available to use then.

    EDIT: Wile I was googling, TruckinMP3 seem to have beaten me to it...

    No worries, your info indicating to not use that combination seems more clear.
    I will need to find the 12volt rail specs on my PS to determine if i need to upgrade before my new board goes in.

    The M1-ATX specs says 2A on the 12V rail which equates to a peak available 24W on the 12V rail
    GIven the fact that the entire system draws around 20-30W, shouldn't the M1-ATX 12V rail be able to power the CPU?

    it powers them just fine, I've got an M1-ATX powering mine, most of the other things I'm running are CF Flash adapter + USB 2.5" HDD and cdrom are 5v, so you'll be fine, just solder a 4-pin connector to one of the floppy connectors
