Merge is next on the slate for development. Currently saving money so I can place an order as soon as they're ready for production.
Wow! The CNC work is fantastic. Also, SFF ATX always grabs my attention
Very impressive case ! SOme of your builds on OCN are in my favourites for soem time now
I'm also working with the Dynamo combo, driven by a 400W Meanwell PSU, to further downsize my Adibou build.
Would you mind measure the total height between the motherboard PCB and the top edge of the Dynamo Mini plugged into the 24-pin MB connector ?
Is it able to merge different watt supplies?
Such as a 160W and a 300W?
Man this case...is pretty. Out of curiosity, how much more volume would be added if an SFX PSU were to be fitted to the right of the MOBO - overlapping the MOBO up until the RAM modules? I'm just curious
I do love the idea of "re-purposing" ATX boards. I want to build around an old mATX board and thought along similar lines..."they're just more readily available compared to ITX boards" - more importantly, I have a spare.
Yes. The plan is for it to merge any two power supplies of the same output voltage. This means you can mix and match the HDPlex 80W, 160W, 300W and 400W AC-DC units as well as multiple external bricks or any reasonable combination of the two.
Nice to see this layout works as well as it does. This is very similar to the config I've had in mind for eventual production.
Great, is the merger intelligent? Such that it can distribute the load according to the individual PSUs watt rating (so procentage of each PSUs max output)?
Or is the load shared equally between the two? Which, when using a 160w + 300w, means one only can have a 320w combined load as the 160W unit will be at its max?
The plan is for it to be intelligent so that each unit is loaded at a relatively equal percentage of its capacity.
Nah you were right. I meant if an SFX psu was going to be used. ~10L for an ATX mobo is pretty damned good. I was primarily curious. It's a great direction. Most people now use an ATX mobo for its features EXCEPT the extra physical pcie slots So this is perfect!
I'd be happy to purchase another one of this case of it gets reproduce. Let me know.
That is great to hear
Can you disclose rough dimensions of the merger?
