    M2-atx, stupid question, powering externals?

    Ok, I am finally getting into DC-DC power supplies after being a hardcore Inverter user.

    I am looking at the M2-atx, it fits the size, power and cost requirements.

    How do you power your cd-rom, HD etc off of this thing? I see the cable that it comes with, but where is the molex plug on the actual psu?

    I also need to power my lcd, usb hub, and slim dvd-rw.

    I am probably blind, help me out!

    The pics show it has it and it shows where it plugs in. That site also has a link to the manual for it. I'd read it... If you had 'd "M2-ATX" it'd been the first link.

    Yeah, like I didnt look at the pics and read the pdf. I did

    I see the ATX connector, and the p4 style connector

    In the manual I see

    Power Output Connectors
    J2 Optional P4-12V power
    J7 ATX power connector (to motherboard)
    J5 To LED (optional)

    Does it come off of the 12v p4 connector?

    Look at this image from the link posted above:
    http://resources.mini-box.com/online...ges/image2.gif

    The molex connectors (CD, HDD, etc) come straight off the ATX plug. Its hard to see, but the ATX and power connectors are all one big joined bunch of cables.
