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?
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?
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...
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.
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...
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...
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
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?
