    DC/DC Power Supplies

    Does anyone have any experience with DC/DC power supplies?

    I want to remove the PSU from my HTPC and swap to a DC/DC with external brick to go fully silent, would something like this power my Ion 330 with no issues?

    Kustom PCs picoPSU-120 DC/DC 12-25v Red (120 Watt)

    Thanks

    Nah, you'll probably end up getting beat 1-0 off the mighty Sunderland!

    Sorry for taking this OT Chris, this is just the first post I've seen of yours today, and I was dying to rub it in a little! Sorry

    They're usually used in carputers, but with an AC adaptor i can't see why it wouldn't work.

    It provides 120 watts is that enough for you?

    Its for an Ion 330 Atom PC with a 3.5" so even the 90 would be fine I think,

    iXBT Labs - ASUS AT3N7A-I Motherboard - Page 1: Introduction, design, features

    Thats a standard 24pin ATX connector isnt it? So I would need the LinITX.com - 12V 150W PicoPSU-150-XT version or will the 20 pin one work still?
