Lindbergh and ATX PSU's

Post by SuperPang » April 10th, 2011, 6:36 pm

I'm gonna spend my Grand National winnings on a Lindbergh and VF5 :awe:

Because the Vewlix F comes with the shittiest JVS PSU imaginable, I'll be using an ATX PSU switched to 100V instead. Has anyone else done this?
Will something like this suffice? http://www.maplin.co.uk/400-watt-switch ... pply-37702"

Which connectors will I be using and will it just plug and play? (I know nothing about PSUs as you may have gathered)

Cheers

doesn't it have it's own PSU? I must be missing something.

VF5 in a vewlix is wrong - you need a sit down lindy.

You use CN1 with an ATX PSU (400watt or higher)

I've actually never done this, yet I've told a lot of customers to-do this, as the SUN/NIPPON Lind PSU is more money than a gold bar..

If it was me I wouldn't use a generic PSU if I was given it for free. They will likely be **** components and poor efficiency.

When it comes to building a PC a good PSU is paramount in my experience. I would recommend buying branded rather than buying cheap, finding out it's **** then having to buy better.

Antec, Enermax and Corsair make very good PSUs, Corsair's being top of my list.

I don't see why different principles would apply to a lindy over a standard PC

CN3 and CN1 connectors are linked, so on the Lindbergh PSU both are installed to power the mobo, video, hdd. but considering they are linked connectors a decent 400W will be just as good as the Lind 248W one - all the people I've told have never had a problem.

CN5 is DVD rom power cable - same pinout as GD-ROM drive
CN2 is Midi cable.

Cheers for that.
The 24 pin ATX connector appears to be the same pinout as CN1

The only difference being the -12VDC not being connected.

Simples. The biggest problem will be fitting all this in the Vewlix :D

I just tried with my Lindbergh and a regular ATX PSU only on CN1 and works like a charm.

CN1 & CN3 are for Lindbergh PSU which has these 2 plugs.
If you use a standard ATX PSU, you only have to use CN1 and it works (pins on CN3 are linked to pins on CN1).
