Hi,
and thank you for your continuous job!

i would like to know where to connect the SYNC cable from the Dynamo 200W mini to the HDplex 400W.

Thanks a lot!

Sync function isn't on the HDPlex 400W, you need a Dynamo 360 for that.

Ok, another small problem: Neither the 360 or the new 200w mini came with the 6pin to 4pin sync cable.
How can I do one by myself starting from one of the 2 6pin to 6pin cable included, and replace one connector with a 4pin?

Is there any guide?

Thank you so much!

Contact me via email and I will forward this to the warehouse so you get one ASAP. Sorry for the oversight. Cheers.

Is it possible to power the GPU with the Dynamo Mini instead of the 360 with this combo? The GPU I'm going to be using does not need the other optional PCIe cable.

Yep. There is a 4 pin to 8 pin PCIe cable from the Mini to the GPU. Just make sure your total power budget is withing spec and everything should be fine.

Three questions:

  1. What's the total 5v power output capable on the SATA power cable? - Basically asking how many 2.5" HDDs (all 5V) and 3.5" HDDS (split 5v and 12v) it can power
  2. Can you get 4-pin molex cable instead of SATA power cable out of that port?
  3. You mention it's recommended to use EPS connector on Mini, but there is a port on the Dynamo 360. With a motherboard that just needs 4- or 8-pin EPS input for power (see this example, page 35), could one use Dynamo 360 without Mini and just power board with EPS from the 360?

I'm sorry if this is listed somewhere, but i searched extensively here and on the sfflab site. Do you have a schematics drawing of the Dynamo 360? Exact dimensions, which plugs input or output, and at what voltages. Exact pinouts of all connectors would be nice as well. As well as exact position and size of any/all mounting holes.

Thanks,
Sean Crees

Thank You! I never actually opened that link cause i just assumed it was the STEP file that i can't open in sketchup.

I don't suppose there's a smaller Dynamo available somehow? I don't need 360 watts. 200 watts would be perfect. Also i only need a 19v to 12v conversion, 1 plug in and 1 plug out.

Does @Kmpkt make something like this? Or does he do custom work like gunique? I wonder if gunique could make something like this if not...

I just posted a link to step down converters in your other thread. May be what you're looking for. Out of curiosity what power supply are you stepping down from?
