I am aware of this but I asked around regarding this problem and I got the following reply "The GPU has a standby controlled from the PCIE key."
So it should not matter than?!
I had the same issue with one of my setups and the fans of the graphics card kept spinning at full speed when the PC was switched off. The GPU will actually not be active but it can cause weird behavior like that. Just try it out.
I am in the middle of soldering. Just hoping not to wreck anything Maybe tonight I have a try, if I get everything completed today. If the fan is spinning all the time, I can turn off the switch on my extension lead. I guess its learning by doing time!
That's the spirit. ?
If you don't mix up + and - or voltages everything should be fine. Usually I'm always checking everything twice before powering it up.
Good luck and let us know how it worked out.
Now, everything is powering up normally... got CPU and GPU fans spinning normally but I do get following message on my screen:
"please power down and connect the pcie power cables for this graphics card"
I dont understand why this is happening. Do I have to solder the pin 5 of 6 which is "sense" to somewhere? I just left it out for now. By the way, the message above is getting put out by the GPU, so it is getting power for sure and it pushes out a signal too... System power draw is around 50w which is fine for GPU + CPU etc.
Success! All running fine... played some games for test and no more power reset. Even the fan of my GTX 1650s is not running and stops when I do shut down the PC. It is not drawing extra power since the system power draw in off mode is 2-3w (just like before).
My soldering jobs are really not good but the electrical tape and heat shrink is conceal it nicely.
Thank you soooo much for your quick answers!
RPS-400 and 500 have the following connector for PS-ON and 5Vsb:
Any clue where to order this TKP DH2L-2X2 male housing and the female TKP terminals that go with it?
Maybe there are other keywords to search for equivalent?
No luck so far with 'TKP' on Mouser, Digi-Key, Ali or ebay.
Fits Meanwell RPS-300-12, RPS-400-12
- 4X screw terminal, 4 pin Hirose
I am now looking at the available connectors for the AC part, the smallest the best.
There is of course the C14
The Shurter C6 was also brought up in this thread I believe
And in the M2426 I also see:
What is this 4 pin Hirose you are refering to? Another option for an AC connector?
