power solution for dn2800mt

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I am building a small htpc based the board dn2800mt. I am having hard time to decide which power brick to choose.
Spec says that the DC input is from 8v(+/-10%) to 19v(+/-10%) for a max of 8A.

I have this "old" brick laying around : 19.5v and 4.62A

From a math point of view, it should fit, as 19v(+/-10%) is 20.9v, but somehow, I am a bit worried as the brick I have is near the spec limit.
What do you suggest ?
Thanks and regards
Lankou

FWIW, in my testing the onboard GMA3650 is horrible. In Windows, it's just passable but not supported in Linux/OpenELEC. It's not even fast enough to support Aero and is in fact slower in a lot of respects than the previous generation D525.

This review corroborates that: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/atom-cedartrtail.html

I believe too the power connector is not the standard thin mini-ITX 7.4mm * 5.0mm but 2.5mm * 5.5mm. Make sure first the tip will fit.

Thanks for the link. interesting read.

I have the right connector for the power brick, do you think the brick I have (rated 19.5v) will work fine ?

Thanks and regards
