Have you got any pictures of where you have placed/mounted the AC-DC? If not, if you can describe where you have mounted it that’ll be great too?
That's what i mean lol, using it instead of the DELL power brick but my concren was the cable length hence why i mentioned about if it was possible to attach nearer to the case
Possibly, was thinking of using Velcro or double sided tape to attach the HD PlEX AC-DC if the cable was not long enough to lay flat, the cable will be sticking out of the case I know and probably won’t look pretty but it’s the only option I can think of at the moment. Any ideas?would you be interested in a 500W external brick, where its cable length was adjustable ?

I officially hate imperial screws. This 6-32 panel screws to be precise. They never, I repeat, never, goes in right the first time. You kinda felt it after the first couple turns then yeah, uh huh, need to resit that again... every effing time. Then you'd have this sinking feeling that you'd ruined your threads - and the silent acknowledgement of the depressing fact that these flat low profile head screws cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.
Seems awfully quiet here these days. ????
Almost 2 years since I had my classic.
My hdplex 160W brick was busted, larry gave me a new one (shhh.. it's actually a 200W unit in old 160W enclosure) for very cheap - great guy, always. Installed it couple days ago with no issues.
Now that I have an extra 40W headroom... thinking of an upgrade to 1650 lp lol. Not that I need it...
Yes it's internal. I've no idea what exactly caused it. Granted I've been running it with 180W load when gaming no problem, idle at 50, regular use at 80-120W.May I know what caused your HDPLEX 160W brick busted? Is this the internal HDPLEX AC-DC unit btw?
If you just have stripped screws, I reckon using these:yeah, that ended up being the fate of my s4m-c... It's still sitting there, sad, because I don't have enough unstripped screws left to get the side to stay on. Though I wouldn't really have a use for it these days regardless as I'm off in matx land now.

One day after I fiddled with something inside thw I plugged it in and it just went 'pop'. Some troubleshootings later I opened up the brick and the center of the board was toasted black. Some IC was the center of it.
I ran my pc with a big, random 200W brick from local hardware store jerry rigged outside the case for about 2 months until replacement from larry arrived.
Thanks. Just wondering if it's caused by temperature.
I'm interested to try HDPLEX AC-DC.. but per my understanding, these units don't have a fan on their own, right?
Thus, I have my concerns using them in non-aircon place in tropical country.
Not on the 200W, but there is a 40 mm fan on the 400W.
Mine was thermal double taped to the bezel, at load it is warm but not as hot as the 24 pin plugin dynamo. I measured 60 centigrade on it.
I'm moving back to my tropical home country next week actually, will be bringing the classic so I'll def tell if I bust another one!
