    is there anything available bigger than the Opus 150w?

    I'm scared of getting a powersupply that does not provide enough power. I want to run atleast a 200w DC-DC ... but don't know if they exist. I checked the store, but the 150 is the biggest

    thanks for any suggestions

    did you search the forum or google?

    this is not int he newbie section so i am allowed to say the above comment!

    here are some tips: (and i can't beleive i am doing this)

    Sproggy Mk4.5 - 250W DIY PSU. cost approx 100 in kit form

    Keypower - standard ATX style so no advanced startup/shutdown - i think

    You sure the 150W won't do? You could always use something else to run additional devices.

    It is the bigest, some folks run 2 DC-DC PS (searching would have told you this) Some use inverters. Good luck and read more.

    thanks for the tips. so the real answer is "no" ... there is nothing bigger than the opus 150w. I want something that controls startup and shutdown.

    Thanks for the tip about running additional devices off another power source, that's a very good idea.

    and what the **** is wrong with all of you? quit acting like such information nazi's. yes I searched, and yes I googled. I also searched on ebay. thanks, but I'm not a newbie.

    WTF??????? BEFOrE YOU CALL EVERYONE NAZIS READ THE DAMN ANSWERS THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO YOU...

    The sproggy i listed in reply 1 has the shutdown and startup features!

    The only problem is you have to build it but it is cheaper and more powerful than the Opus!

    Sometimes i wonder why i bother.....i really do!

    lol did I hit a nerve? I didn't mean to **** you off. I was just giving my opinion. it seems like in any forum nowadays, the only response people get to questions are


    or

    or some smartass response

    it just got to me. I didn't mean to offend. i apologize. I thought it was a meaningful question, because I can almost swear I've seen a 200w opus.... but I guess my memory is going...


    oh, and you have one funny *** avatar

    there was talk of an opus 220W but it hasn't materialized yet.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    How sure are you that the Opus won't supply enough power? What are you system specs?
