I am completely restructuring my Q60 and Q40 with new case, HD etc. I am pretty sure I can use an ATX power supply instead of the original AT being the voltage equivalent (5 & 12 Volt). Am I right?
I know that I have to short-circuit pin 4&5 on the motherboard main cable to get power on the IDE Molex connector, but at the end I need only Ide Molex.
See the diagram below, showing the ATX Power Supply connections:
Most ATX power supplies have suitable disk drive and hard drive power connectors, which will also power the Q40/60.
To switch on an ATX power supply, pin 14: /PS_ON should be connected to GND and switch off disconnect from GND.
I used short pin 14 and 15 to power the ATX power on.
But a push to make switch could be fitted to power the supply on. Or a simple flip-flop circuit could used to connect the ATX switch.
I have a Q40 and Q60 in Black Shuttle cases just need the switch to complete the installation.
