    PW60 or PW70 psu?

    Im going to get a new psu (12v input) and my local dealer has the PW60 A 100+ and then PW70 A 100+, prices are the same but i have no idea what the differences are between these two!

    For the PW60
    Compact design, less cables. The PW-60A is the only cableless ATX power solution for the VIA platform. Compatible with an entire range of mini-itx motherboards such as VIA EPIA-V, EPIA-5000, EPIA-800, Lucky Star Mini-itx, FIC C3 933 the PW-60A provides a cool, silent power solution for your small mini-itx motherboard. Reduce space. Eliminate 20 unnecessary cables by connecting directly into the ATX connector. Measuring just 170x37mm, the PW-60A was designed from ground up to fit the mini-itx form factor, it even uses the same mounting screws! Snap it in and power up!

    Cool power. The PW-60A provides plenty of power for your CPU and peripherals.

    Silent. The PW-60A is a 100% silent solution. No fans, no noise, just power for your silent PC.

    Comes with 1x 3,5" and 1x 5,25" drive-connector
    and the PW70:
    Compact design, less cables. The PW-70A is the only cableless mini-atx dc to dc power supply for the VIA platform. Compatible with an entire range of mini-itx motherboards such as VIA EPIA-M provides cool, silent power for your small mini-itx board.. Not compatible with the MII10000/MII12000 unless you use the ATX extendercable.

    The MB their designed to connect to, and therefore their shape, is different. It's actually in the descriptions you quoted! (Though when the say "entire range" it's a little deceptive since it won't physically fit on some without an extension cable, even though electrically they're all compatible.)

    yes use pw60a for the epia v series and the pw70a for the m series. the circuits are the exact same, just a different board layout so the psu can snap directly onto the motherboard. great psu's btw...

    ah ok but the description isnt very clear cause it says:

    The PW-70A is the only cableless mini-atx dc to dc power supply for the VIA platform. Compatible with an entire range of mini-itx motherboards such as VIA EPIA-M provides cool

    The PW-60A is the only cableless ATX power solution for the VIA platform. Compatible with an entire range of mini-itx motherboards such as VIA EPIA-V, EPIA-5000, EPIA-800, Lucky Star Mini-itx, FIC C3 933 the PW-60A

    Ive got the V10000 so i should get the PW60 then?

    screw the ITPS.

    heh, that being said. It takes 12v (unregulated) in from your power source then goes out with 12v (regulated). You have to hook the 12v out to the 12v in of your PW60. And there will be splicing to do.

    On the ITPS there is a 12v constant and a 12v when the car is on line. And the ground.

    If you want to use it soley as a regulator you can tie the 12v const + 12v when car is on lines together that way it will never CUT the power to your PSU which you don't want to happen if you plan on using your computer in standby.

    But yeah, I don't use the ITPS because of the dropout voltage and the fact that I don't want a device telling my comp when to turn on and off.

    I was going to get a ITPS cuz of the voltage peaks (my batterij is quite old, and the power consumption isnt excactly small...), but if its only to get the pc on/off then i can think of my own solutions too Ill hook up a multimeter on it too see if the peaks are pretty big, does the PW has avoltage regulator that is a bit strong of is it all fluffy?
