Compatible with my motherboard?

Post by » Thu Feb 16, 2006 1:50 pm


Have found this little psu [url] ... cts_id/181[/url] and was wondering if it would fit other non-mini-itx-motherboards? It's is stated that it will run a P4 at 3Ghz when a P4 cable is mounted on.

My motherboard is a Asus P4GPL-X. Im running a Pentium M 1.6Ghz at 2.0Ghz and using approx. 120Watt.

If this PSU wont fit is there any other good low-dimension and high-effecient PSU?

Is it a problem if I use one 3.5V connection a mount 2xHD and 1xDVD on it alone? Will it run?

I assume you realize this supply takes 12VDC as input, and not 120/240VAC?

#1: I know that I will have to buy an adapter that would have a output of 12V 9-12 Amp.

Isn't there anybody else who know or even tried if this adapter will work on other "normal" motherboards?

It will as long as you can physically fit it in.

Ie, check the location and the free space around the power socket on your motherboard.

#4: Regarding the fit-issue I has planed to buy an ATX-extension-cable so I can place the PSU whereever I want.

But I thank you for your contribution to the subject. :-)
