    Prototype REVOCCASES RCC-BRICKMOD1 / build your own power brick with up to 500W output

    Very nice! What are the exact dimensions of it? I would like to see a 500w version of this packaged with your plug-in pico psu. Rumor has it the new Nvidia rtx 3000 series will need over 300w, so 500w will be good future proofing. Edit: How's the noise of the fan?

    Prototype REVOCCASES RCC-BRICKMOD1 / build your own power brick with up to 500W output

    Looking good! So for getting power from here to the system. I know we can use a pico psu, g-unique, or hdpelx 200w for the motherboard and CPU. But how about a high powered gpu? Are there any decent solutions?

    Prototype REVOCCASES RCC-BRICKMOD1 / build your own power brick with up to 500W output

    I'm surprised by the disinterest in external psu. Personally my dream would be to have a premium passively cooled (I could deal with a fan that turns on and off) metal 500w brick. Then have aviator connectors from the brick to your PC. Then have a aviator connector or something else to molex/atx...

    Power Supply A Guide to 12V PSU

    Thanks. So will using the 500w Meanwell require monster size wire on the dc output? Looks like around 8awg wire will be needed to handle the 500w, 12v, 40 amp output? There are only two terminals on the output... V+ and V-, so it's not even distributed at all.

    Power Supply A Guide to 12V PSU

    Thanks! When an aviation connector has an amp rating listed, do you know if that's total or per pin? Per pin would line up with what you are saying i think.

    Power Supply A Guide to 12V PSU

    Hi guys, I'm pondering using a Meanwell rps-500-12 as an external power supply. I'm thinking it would be cool to use an aviation connector from the Meanwell to the pc case, and from there to a One2 distro 400. I'm struggling to find any connector that is rated for a high current of around 40...

    Splitting 400w DC Input?

    Cool, thanks! i might go down this route. Do you know of any full enclosures, heatsinks, or ones that could be 3d printed for the Meanwell 500w? It seems fairly unsafe and unaesthetic with parts of the board exposed. I have some experience with soldering and electric circuits, so this would be a...

    Splitting 400w DC Input?

    Thank you for the informative reply! Are the meanwell units safe to have outside the case and behind a desk, similar to a power brick?

    The dc-atx, not the ac/dc

    Hah even worse. Im wondering if an hdplex 400w could be jammed above or below the motherboard. Possibly with the backplate removed from the hdplex to be make it thinner.

    Whats the exact clearance above the motherboard to the top of case, ignoring the riser cable? Also, how about below the motherboard? Thanks!

    Splitting 400w DC Input?

    What about splitting to two hdplex 200w? One would be a dummy one that just connects the pcie connector to the GPU and the other powering the Mobo.

    Splitting 400w DC Input?

    Crap you are right! I didn't think of that.

    Splitting 400w DC Input?

    That's what I figured, but I'm surprised I've never seen anyone do it. Seems like a great way to reduce wires and components. It does seem difficult/impossible to find existing molex adapters to achieve this though. Maybe custom cables would have to be made

    Splitting 400w DC Input?

    Hi, Say you have an external 400w ac/dc hdplex providing dc power to your computer. Could you split the 400w dc input, using molex cables, into two 200 watt inputs. I'm wondering if this could be done to have 1 200w dc input directly power a GPU and another power an hdplex 200w direct-plug?
