    Will this work?

    I just bought a MiniITX PC based on a Epia V motherboard.

    I also bought a PW-120M 12V DC/DC (200 Watt) for powering the motherboard, but will this work? In the documentation it says that it will work for Epia M "and a wide range of Epia" motherboards.

    Does it fit? Electrically it'll work fine, but those snap-on PSUs require particular clearence around the ATX plug.

    That Power supply unit is not a regulator, and it needs a 12v input to operate properly. You would need an ITPS or something as a regultar inline between that PS unit and your car battery. If it is being used indoors with an ac/dc convertor then you are fine.

    It is only electrically that I'm worried

    If it does not fit onto the board because of clearance, I will make a small extentioncord.

    I might have a problem with clearance around the ram-modules.

    I'm at work right now (and had the supply delivered here) and the pc is at home, so I will not be able to check for aother 4 hours

    coach: I already bouth a ITPS to put infront of the powesupply.

    But I guess trying to plug it into the car without the ITPS would be a bad idea?
