    Power Supply 240-360mVp-p Ripple and Noise in desired 12v ATX power supply

    This is the power supply in question. As you can see, ripple ranges from 240-320, and ripple noise from 300-360. Before I start, I'm running a Radeon RX 570 (150W) and a 3300X (65W) on a B450I (35W), so the system total clocks in around 260W, giving it decent 300W headroom. As I understand it...

    PSU Puter - ~2L gaming PC build inside an ATX PSU

    Hello everyone, I have just finished my most compact build yet and am convinced there's no better place to get some feedback on it than here. My build fits a gaming PC (7th Gen. Intel + 1050 Ti) inside the husk of a dead, standard ATX PSU (outside volume of just 2.16L). Admittedly I have been...

    Power Supply AC/DC PSU with 600W @ 12V on a ~2x8“ footprint? Help!

    Hi all, I‘m working on the basics of a 12V project - details coming soon- and it needs a LOT of power, around the 550w mark to be precise: I have a 210x54x40mm volume available for the PSU. So far I came up with two possible solutions: 1) Two 2x4” Cosel Cosma GMA 300F with a compact load...

    Possible to switch/upgrade GPU blower fans?

    I picked up an Alienware x51 R2 as a gift this weekend for about $60. Thing wouldn't boot and I knew how to fix the problem. Once I fixed that, added an SSD, upgraded to a Dell 330w, and found a new GPU, I realized that I may have a new problem. Heat. There are a lot of people online with X51s...

    Silverstone Raven RVZ03 and mATX

    Hello everyone ! I have a question for RVZ03 owners. Do you think that with some gentle modding (or butchering :p) you can fit a mATX motherboard (such as in my case (ahah get it ?) an Asus Maximus VIII Gene) ? And furthermore, could you still use the double PCIe slot for a graphic card (i...

    #NotABuildLog - Transplant with some added flair

    Soldering 6-pin power to Zotac 1050 mini?

    So an idea came to mind when I was examining the PCB of a Zotac 1050 Mini. This card has no extra power input, drawing all its power from the mobo. But on the PCB there is a place where a 6-pin connector could easily be soldered. Would the card accept power from a power cable with no further...
