1. The addition wire is JST EH type conector, should you want to make your own. It is 12V 12V GND GND 5V, I forget the order but the pinout should look like that. You can probably decipher from the SATA connector.

2. Yes any 12V line works. The line to the GPU connector is very minimal because it is on the PSU side. If you can make a clean double crimp, then yes that will work. That double wire one you propose is current crimped to the M2427.
Perfect, thanks for all! :thumb:

The M2427 is definitely a game-changer for SFF! I did notice one issue, though, and I'm wondering if others can reproduce?

1. Set "Restore on AC/Power Loss: Power On" (or equivalent) in the BIOS.
2. Shutdown your computer

Expected: System powers off
Actual: System powers down, then immediately starts to boot.

When "Restore on AC/Power Loss" is set to "Power Off", or if it is set to "Power On" and the stock cable is used, then the "Expected" behavior is observed. I set "Restore on AC/Power Loss: Power On" so that the computer will boot after AC power is restored after a power outage.

If you set it to "power off" does it operate correctly?

Does it make any difference if step 2 is "Remove AC power cable"? I wouldn't be surprised if it's doing something clever to avoid powering on after an explicit shutdown.

1. Is the default setting "power off?"

2. Does this happened from a booted OS? A BIOS shutdown looks very similar to a power loss and the unit probably adds some time difference due to the logic. Set to AC-Loss to "Power On."

A. Windows shutdown from OS-> System shuts down and stays "Off"
B. Windows hiccup power loss from OS (flip the breaker quickly)-> System turns back on after power loss

Do the above states function correctly?

I tested the following scenarios just now:

stock PSU cable, "Restore on AC/Power Loss: Power On"

1. Shutdown from OS
Expected: Power off
Actual: Power off

2. Quickly flip surge suppressor on/off switch
Expected: Power on
Actual: Power on

m2427, "Restore on AC/Power Loss: Power On"

3. Shutdown from OS
Expected: Power off
Actual: Restarts

4. Quickly flip surge suppressor on/off switch
Expected: Power on
Actual: Power on

stock PSU cable, "Restore on AC/Power Loss: Power Off"

5. Shutdown from OS
Expected: Power off
Actual: Power off

6. Quickly flip surge suppressor on/off switch
Expected: Power off
Actual: Power off

m2427, "Restore on AC/Power Loss: Power Off"

7. Shutdown from OS
Expected: Power off
Actual: Power off

8. Quickly flip surge suppressor on/off switch
Expected: Power off
Actual: Power off

All scenarios work as expected except for scenario (3)

Thank you for taking the time to research this and report the findings.

I'll have to research this and hopefully address in REV2.

Otherwise, is it working as expected? If you do need that feature, give me a PM and we'll work from there.

My pleasure. I can live without it for now. I'd like to purchase a REV2 if one becomes available, though! Thanks!

And another victim of the customs. Got charged 21€ (Netherlands), of which 13€ administrative fees...
But at least I got it in my hands 👍

From the link above, it seems that in NL customs is making a difference whether the sender is a company (e.g. internet purchases) or if it's a private person (e.g. by a family member or friend).
I read it quickly but it seems that:
- Package from a company will be taxed accordingly to its indicated value
- Package from a friend will not be taxed if under €45

Did you get your M2427 from the J-Hack company or from your friend Thehack? :p

Could be worth a try. But the packet states the real name of TheHack and underneath the company "J-Hack". So I'm not too hopeful.

Hello. Please see below for the wiring guide. You can use any of the matching colors for the pinout, but this is the baseline guide.

Big thanks to @paulesko for confirming the sense wires for me.

I´ve just done this. A bit different because I don´t want to have the cable joined to the gpu plug, but will work anyway I hope


As long as customs goes I´ve paid almost 25 euros for the M2427 and 35 for the Ncase. It doesn´t make sense... but it´s the way it is.

Yes. That will work if you can double crimp! Let me know how it runs ;)

Wanted to order Plat for my SF750, but apparently it can't be delivered to Thailand. Any chance it will available for shipping here?
