    Question Help with SFF Compaq Power Supply

    Hi, I have a compaq sff deskpro that I'm going to use for a carputer. Here is a picture of the case http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...ayphotohosting. The model number is DPENS-P300/3.2/W5 US. My problem is that I want to connect my DC-DC power supply to the mobo, and it has a proprietary atx connector. The power connector to the motherboard has 14 pins. I looked on the internet and skimmed the mp3car archive but couldn't come to any conclusion. If anybody has any ideas I'd be very appreciative.

    I found a thread on the internet about a guy who wants to use the 14pin compaq power supply for a standard 20 pin atx mobo. Exact opposite of me. I'm just looking into which pins on the 14 correspond to the pins on the 20. Damn colours.

    So i tried the pin layout as posted by petemal2000:

    pin one is the one on the bottom left.


    1 = 3.3v (says 3.5 on the diagram but should be ok)
    2 = 3.3v sense (probably wont need this)
    3 = Ground
    4 = 5v
    5 = Ground
    6 = 5v
    7 = Ground
    8 = 3.3v
    9 = -12v
    10 = Fans off ( probably wont need this one either)
    11 = PS On ( wont need this)
    12 = 5v aux ( im guessing this is the standby power, just connect it to 5v)
    13 = Power good????
    14 = 12v

    I get the following results:

    1. Power light on motherboard comes on
    2. Pressing power button results in a click over the computer speaker (no power light)
    3. After pressing the power button a few times I could smell something burning from around the computer speaker.

    I could use a little help. Thx

    By the way I am powering this with a Pw-70a.

    Greenglo,

    I have just fit a M1-ATX DC-DC PSU to a Compaq EN SFF. Have a look at the pdf's it shows how i did it. I had to invert the PS-On signal from the MB because Compaq use positive logic to enable the PSU.
