    Is it Necessary to have a Power Regulator Connected to the PSU?

    Greetings,

    I am in the process of building a CarPC on my 05 Corolla. I am planning to use an M1-ATX PSU to power the Via Epia m10000. Do I need to connect the PSU to a power regulator? Why would I need a power regulator? Thank you in advance for your responses.

    Although the M1 is a power regulator, you ought to understand the importance of incorporating one in your system. Click on the link in my signature to the FAQ Emporium. In there you will find a link to an explanation of power supplies and regulators.
