I use some regular HP laptop power adapters that work great. But the power adapters only supports 45W-65W as I remember. I have a i3 8100t that has TDP 35W and the 45W-65W power adapters are good for me. Yes, the H310T/CSM mother boars itself has a 12V/19V power connector but I never use it to power up my board. If you need a 90W adapter, I got one from Amazon and now I use it for my Lenovo T450s and HP EliteBook 740 G2. By the way, I only paid $10 to get the HP 65W Power adapter from eBay.

sorry @tyeh I forgot to tell you that I bought an Asus H110T/CSM mobo, just like the one that you had. It's arriving soon.

Oh, I do have an Asus H110t/CSM running Windows 10 now (but move to Asus H310T/CSM for 2280 M.2 SSD support). It seems the 2-pin power input does support DC 12V (Please check the h110T/CSM manual) but I don't know where you can get the adapter to cover the 4-pin ATX CPU from PSU to the two-pin DC Power input on H110T/CSM. At the same time, I also don't know the current supported from the 4-pin ATX CPU power by your PSU. The whole motherboard needs at least 20W plus 65W and that means the 4-pin ATX CPU power have to provide at least 7A.

I just saw this and not sure they will work for you. But it seems they can be connected to 4-pin ATX CPU power from PSU and provide 2-pin DC power to the H110T/CSM motherboard. You should check the output voltage and their positive/negitave ends using a meter before plugging in.

Good luck and be careful ... don't burn the motherboard with its components.

Well @tyeh sorry for the late answer, I was on holiday for a few days and reaching the web wasn't always easy... Thanks again a lot for you useful help! I will definitely use a meter in order not to fry the new motherboard.
Il come back to you as soon as the board arrives.

see you
