pico power supply - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Here's an idea. Since the Pico PSU has an external brick anyways (that I'm assuming you don't measure as part of the system size) then just use a PSU to power the Pico PSU. What I mean is instead of using a normal 12v power brick, use a normal ATX PSU (get one that is independently regulated) and use it to power the Pico PSU. Even better, get one that is 100% modular. Then, just mod one of the modular cables to power the Pico PSU, and somehow jumper the proper pins on the 24-pin modular connector. I think this would also take care of the "crappy ripple problem" that TheLaw mentioned, because according to jonnyGURU's review of a few Pico PSUs, the ripple seems to have come from the cheap power bricks they bundled with them.
