Can you explain this?
>Dell 19.5VDC Laptop Power Adapter
Did you use a DC-DC converter to convert this to +12, +5V for the mobo and hard drives?
The major attraction of this motherboard is the on-board PSU. The input is 19VDC. The common as nails (at least in my world) Dell 19.5VDC laptop power adapter fits the specification and even has the correct connector to mate to the MB.
This means that you don't need a standard PSU or even better you don't need the space for a conventional PSU. You do need to understand your power budget.

Yes, I think personally that you have really found the killer combination for the Cube conversion. A picoPSU and a powerful enough external brick to drive it can eat up a lot of pounds (or dollars). Also being able to not have to have any plug in PSU at all to the motherboard means a whole lot less to worry about.
A simple laptop type external supply for a low power set up means you win all around.

Yeah we where discussing this board but the Power Management kept me from getting it.
If you get it all going awesome!!! Maybe the second Cube mod I do will incorporate that mobo but I have the one already for the mod I am doing now.
Also Gigabyte has a Thin iTX board in the pipes as well.
