    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.

    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.

    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?

    DAN A4-SFX

    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?

    DAN A4-SFX

    Has anyone used an hdplex 200w dc-atx coupled with a kmkpt Dynamo 360 to save space? Do you think the Dynamo 360 could be squeezed in somewhere like below the GPU or above? I'm thinking of ways to maximize space for a small custom loop.

    Hey, do you guys think this custom loop will fit? I'm pondering the idea of using the hdplex 400w instead of an sfx psu, then putting in a EK-XRES 100 DDC MX reservoir/pump (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-100-ddc-mx-3-1-pwm-incl-pump), and then a 120mm radiator...

    Production The MI-6 Microtower Case: Performance in 6.7L

    So just stumbled upon this case and it honestly looks like my dream case come true. Basically a smaller Dan case A4 for mini itx gpus. Looks like the build quality is very similar as well. Very much looking forward to ordering one these. Anyone upsizing and looking to sell theirs haha :)?
