    Power Supply Comparison Chart

    Hey guys and gals,

    I'm compiling information for a power supply comparison chart. Which power supplies would you all like to see in it and what parameters would you all like compared?

    Thanks for your input.

    the minibox lineup, dsatx, and the opus lineup-- i think it would be benificial to have the total wattage, and then break it down to the recomended max load on each power rail-- i know there has ben issues in the past with certain dc-dc's not having enough juice on certain rails for certain boards.

    it could be helpful to list if they are controlable, and the interface they use for control(usb/rs232), or how they are adjustable (like the m2 uses jumpers to set the shutdown time...)

    it would also be nice to list those that have the 4 pin pentium connector, so it is easier to know what you would need while ordering(in case you need to order a adapter also)

    Is "peak load" or "regulation percentage" important to everyone?

    Anyone have additional suggestions for other brands or parameters to test?

    It looks long dead....

    If not, I'll add "standby power" - ie, connected and sensing when to turn on to power the PC etc.

    Thanks for that. I'm pretty happy with my M2-ATX and don't plan on changing it soon. Just need to fix up the startup reset issue (with the PC on and car off, if I turn the key to start the car, the PC sometimes resets. probably the loss of power while the engine is being cranked ...)
