gigabyte brix bxbt-1900 power supply?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am building a mini arcade machine using a gigabyte brix bxbt-1900 and need to power this and a amplifier and fan.

so was thinking of using a small pc power supply and removing all wires except 2 12v wires one for the pc and one for the fan. Then using 2 5v wires to power the monitor and mini amplifier. Will also connect a switch to turn the power supply on or of.

The gigabyte brix bxbt-1900 power supply that comes with it only outputs 2.5 amps and the 12v coming out of a 24pin atx connector has more than 2.5amps so will more amps harm the pc or will it be fine?

It will work fine. The current draw is just how many amps it needs to consume when everything is running at maximum. When it isn't running at maximum it draws less power. If the power supply is 12V 2.5A then it has a maximum output of 2.5 amps which is plenty to run an Intel J1900 (30 watts). I have an 80 watt PicoPSU on my J1900 board and runs fine. If you want to be really safe you could add in a 3 amp fuse between the PSU and the computer.
