    Opus 150 PS available for Shuttle XPC

    Just thought some of you with a Shuttle XPC might want to know that OPUS SFX-1215 150 watt PS with a Shuttle XPC bracket is now available. Just ordered the first one from Kris today and will receive it tomorrow Friday Dec 5th 2003.
    Can't wait to get it in and not have to play with having to go through the procedure to turn it on and off all the time with an inverter.

    I visited kris yesterday and bought a 150watt power supply and the bracket for the shuttle. It's awsome! The bracket fits perfectly in the shuttle with the power supply.

    I think some of the newer XPC's use 250watt versus 200watt.
    Whether the size is different I don't know...

    My SN41G2 uses a 170-watt PS so there was a difference of 20 watts.

    I emailed Kris about this yesterday - will post the reply as soon I get it, as I want to power my SN41G2 with the 150W (I thought the SN41G2 had a 200W PSU?).
    My feeling is that unless your running a fully loaded system, it won't be a problem.
    What I don't know is how optimistic the rateing is on the XPC supply is vs how conservative the Opus one is.
    BTW Kris sent me some pics of the shuttle supply/bracket - anyone interested in seeing them? (PM me with your email, but it'll be Monday before I can send them).

    Car pc project on-going (XPC + Lilliput + 802.11b + GPS (CF) + D-Link FM + anything else I can think of) in a 94' LSE Range Rover.

    He doesn't mention he is using an external video card instead of the built in one.

    His hard disk RPM isn't mentioned either, but that wouldn't bother me.

    That being the case, he should be more than fine.

    As he said, it's not loaded full tilt...
