    Morex 5677 Mini-ITX Case in store - what PSU is included?

    I've been looking at the Morex 5677 Mini-ITX case that includes a PSU from the store here (http://store.mp3car.com/Morex_5677_M..._p/enc-022.htm). Unless I'm missing something, the specs for the power supply aren't shown. I'm trying to figure out if this will work with the setup I'm planning. Does anyone know what PSU comes with it or what the output is?

    Apparently on the page you pointed out, the words " M2-ATX" happen to be a blind/invisible link.

    Perhaps someone running the store can fix it with a highlight?


    Anyway, here's where the link points to. Specs for the power supply:

    Oh. Thank you. I was wondering about that but I thought that couldn't be it because it says:

    Assembled Photo Below is an example of a unit built with the following Parts which are not included for this price: M2-ATX (...)

    so that does include the power supply ? Cos that alone is 75.00 ? So 10.00 extra for the case ?

    So... I guess I was right to be suspicious. My big box of parts arrived yesterday. I ordered the case with PSU. And the PSU is most certainly NOT the M2-ATX. Just a heads-up to anyone else ordering this. The included PSU comes with a big AC adapter and does not have provisions for ignition on/off switching.

    The Morex cases typically come with a 12V @ 5A (60 Watt) power brick and a PS board that uses that REGULATED 12V to run from. You can't feed your car's 12V into it, as that is UNregulated.

    Exactly - the M2-ATX does not come with the Morex 5677. The photo was provided to show people how they could use the case.

    I hope that this was not a big surprise - if it was and the case is new, you can return it and we will refund you and not charge the 15% restocking fee. Just email the store and quote me. Clearly we need a better description regarding the PSU that does come with the box, thanks for pointing it out.

    Also - we will be offering the Morex 5677 w/o PSU at a reduced price once we get them in stock again in a few weeks.

    Thanks for offering to accept it back, but it's only $10 more so I don't think it would be worth it to ship it back from Canada. I already built my PC in it anyway. I'll just save up some more $ and buy the M2-ATX when I can.

    I certainly do agree that there needs to be some clarification - it's better now, when I first saw it and started this thread, the "power supply specifications" section wasn't even there, which is why I was confused. But it certainly needs to be made clear that the included PSU is not intended/suitable for car use.

    One good thing I now know from this is that I can run my entire setup on 60W, though.
