    PSU and mini-ATX

    Hi,

    - Does the power supply "PW-70A 12V DC/DC (100 watts)" works in mini-ATX Motherboard ?
    - Does the ITPS works with a mini-ATX motherboard.
    - Can I connect at the same time the TFT and the PC on the same power supply ?

    PS: The mobo is a mini-atx PC-Chips with a Via C3 Samuel 2 CPU, and I have 1HDD, 1 stick of ram, 2 joystick USB and a GPS USB (and a Lilliput with touchsreen)

    Thanks

    Screw that idea, buy a opus. You will say expesive but in the long run it WILL WORK and be safe. That would work with a mini atx but by the looks of it it wont be enough power. Also use the

    I searched, and I asked to the shop where I'll buy.

    I found a 80W PSU with a nice voltage tolerance range (10.8-20V) but I don't know if that's enought for my config, I used all of the calculators, but my procesor didn't appear in anyone... How can I mesure that myself?

    How can I use the ITPS only as a shootdown controler?

    Thanks!

    I have the 80 watt PS that is also a regulator (pw-80) and ordered an ITPS. You can solder two pads together to stop it from being a regulator (it only does 5 amps, 60 watts), but unregulated, it seems to be good for 220 watts.

    I think the max power that CPU uses is 12 watts if it is the 1 gig one.

    I think that even with a full sized 3.5 hard drive, you MIGHT be able to do it. If it is the pw-80 PSU from Mini-box.com, they oddly enough have it rated at 60 watts of power now though, not 80 like it was when I bought it, so I don't know if they just over rated it before, or under rate it now.

    I have a Mini-ITX Via board with the 600mhz processor, a slimline DVD drive, 2.5 laptop drive, and various USB things, and I have no problems with power. Even running a full sized hard drive and dvd drive it worked, but I didn't use it too long to be sure it would be stable.

    I have a Mini ATX board with a celeron processor. the boards power connector is a six pin connector (2 rows of 3) I want to buy an Opus 150w PSU. Does it have an adapter or is there a way to wire it up to work with what I have.

    Thanks
