You are going to spend $300 on a board and want to save money on a power supply? By the time you buy all the components and burn stuff, you will already have spent a sizable chunk of money that could've gone towards the power supply.Originally Posted by michaelhaynes11
Also, how confident are you with electronics? You asking for recomendations on the regulator makes me wonder if you would really would want to risk $300 board.
Number one advise, buy a power supply. If you still want to make one, choose something that is not a linear regulator, since it won't power your computer during cranking and dissipates quite a bit of heat. Good luck searching.
