    Turns out my ISP has blocked all .tk due to the RIAA and Spam complaints.
    I hope he is well after the disaster.
    I would still like to buy a machine from him.

    some more questions

    1. i'm assuming the led next to the standby is the standby indicator :P, what is the other led (next to the 47uh inductor)?

    2. atx-1 plugs into the motherboard's power pins?

    3. where are the 5v, 3.3v, 5v standby, -5v, -12v outputs?
    edit: found the -5, -12, is the 5v standby the one just labelled "STBY"?

    4. where does the "power on/good" signals come from?
    edit: are they "PG" and "PS_ON"?

    5. where does vcc come from?

    thanks a lot

    You are correct on the first one. The one next to the inductor is the power on indicator (PSU full on).
    2. atx-1 plugs into the motherboard's power pins?
    Plug ATX-1 into the mobo power switch. Then the header from the power button switch plug to ATX-2. Basically you are rerouting the power button switch.
    3. where are the 5v, 3.3v, 5v standby, -5v, -12v outputs?
    edit: found the -5, -12, is the 5v standby the one just labelled "STBY"?
    3.3V is below MAX788 chips (3 holes), and 5V is below MAX787 (9 or 10 holes)
    5V standby is label with STBY.
    4. where does the "power on/good" signals come from?
    edit: are they "PG" and "PS_ON"?
    Power Good (Gray) = PG - below CMOS 4049 chip
    Power ON (Green) = PS_ON - Between 12V relay and Sproggy relay.

    5. where does vcc come from?
    What is Vcc? If you are talking about power in put, +12V In = Battery Red.
    If you talking about ACC. That is going to the car keyswitch (Only on/hot when the key is insert and turn.). Cig lighter is one of them.
    thanks a lot

    thanks again mate


    edit: btw, would you know if the max787 and national lm2678t-5.0 are comparible? (i.e. could i use the national chip instead, i can't get my hands on the max787s)

    Vcc on that diagram is the 5V (Orange).
    If you want to build one base on National LM3678 chip, look for Mastero/Sproggy 4.0 thread. Some people report problem with those chips. That is why later Mastero change the board to use Max chip and called it 4.1 (I think). They are similar but not an identical replacement (7pins V 5 pins).
