Question about Zippy 400W EPS POWER SUPPLY (HG26400P) Power Supply

1 Answer

Minium load & EPS standard

Can anyone tell me if the Zippy HG2-6400P meet the EPS 12V standard? What does the minium load and minium current mean? Can not I just use one type of voltage, such as use +12V only, while keep other voltage (+5V,+3.3V) with none load?

You just need to make sure the power supply matches your motherboard is by Wattage, so that is all you have to be concerned about when buying a power supply..400Watts, 500Watts...The +12V, +5V, +3.3V is the power that your motherboard needs for itself and the hardware hooked up to it. Like the CD ROM has a plug to the power supply and it may use 12V. The motherboard also has a power connector and it may use +5V, etc. All you need to do is get the right wattage match for the motherboard, then use the correct wires to plug in the motherboard, CD-ROM, HardDrive, etc. The adapters are keyed so you should not have any problem figuring out which goes where, however, I would recommend writing it down if you can.
If you have any questions let me know.

How to make a pc power unit work without a motherboard?

There are two pins on the atx connector you need to bridge. You can wire a switch to the pins too if you want so you can toggle on and off. Otherwise, there is a guy on eBay (seller id: antronst) that sells a connector with the pins already bridged with a on/off switch and a resistor wired in to provide some stability for five or six dollars.
Here is a diagram. Make sure it is a standard atx power supply. Some old Dells had goofy wiring.

Getting slight current in the case and its components

Sounds defective. If it's new or under warranty, have it replaced. If not buy a replacement.

These things are rarely user serviceable so unless you can find a worn wire or another reason for your short, there isn't much you can do.

Dell ATX(12v) power supply

The fact that it is made by Dell is irrelivent.

ATX is a standard and so are 20 and 24 pin motheroboard connectors.

You should find what you need by searching for: power supply unit on Wikipedia and Google.

Good luck!

I need to replace an A-Top ATC-250u. 115/230V - 7/4A 60/50MHz. I have found some to buy online but most of them have 3.5/5.5A or similar. Can I buy one that has a hight Amp rating on it and be safe? Say...

The ATC-250U power supply is a 250W supply based on the combined wattage rating of each output adding up to 250W... so increasing one output current means another has to be reduced to remain a250W supply... newer computer power supplies are 400W, 600W and even 850W. The newer supplies regulate using the 3.3V supply as a sense. The ATC supply has no 3.3V. It uses the 5V supply for regulation which means the current must be a minimum or 3A, but is rated to a 25A maximum (125W). The 12V is rated up to 10A (120W) and the other 2 outputs make up the other 5W.

Wouldn't like to try but the cables are the same and using the connectors in the correct formation you should be able to but risky.

How to install it.. It just won't fit

PSU | Standard ATX PSII

That is what is listed on NCIXUSA.Com. If this PSU you are talking about is a "Standard ATX PSII" PSU, then it will mount the same way many other mower supplies mount. If not, it should still fit, but its not supported. You should always do research before your purchase, and Im sure Thermaltake could have provided the answer and still can tell you how to mount it.
