How do you feel about a bit of rewiring?

Would one of those 5 1/4 bay SLI PSUs do the trick? (I know thermaltake has one that I think is rated for 300W....... ).

You mean this one?
W0130 POWER EXPRESS 250W

It only provides 12v rails... so theres no 5v, 3.3v, etc that a motherboard and processor require....

Been checking around online and i think ive found an amazing option. Id have to thank sswilson for getting me searching on the thermaltake website cause i found this baby online last night that seems more than ideal if i want to remove my stock power supply=
Thermaltake 5.25" Mini ITX Drive Bay 270W Power Supply [A2422] - FrozenCPU.com

It seems that its made for their massive case (that ive always wanted) called the Mozart TX. Its a 5.25' 270watt power supply with active pfc Booyeah! Now i just need to find a canadian retailer that sells it for something reasonable (only found retailer so far that sells it for over 200cad)

Also... lookie lookie what came in the mail yesterday




Mmmmmmm, can wait till my motherboard arrives now, hehe.

Heh.... nice when stuff arrives in the mail... :)

Make sure you do some research on the pin-outs of that PSU... itx is a completely different standard, so there is no guarantee that it's got the same pin-outs as ATX.

Page 7 here http://www.via.com.tw/en/downloads/w...orm_factor.pdf lists the 20 pin O/P if you want to compare it to ATX standard. (Says it's industry standard 20 pin).

The pinouts checkout the same as standard atx, booyeah! :D hehe. I didnt really doubt it tho... cause when you look at the 20 pin connectors and compare which pins are square/which are round they're all the same, hehe.
