Here it is! I install the Fuel ATX adapter (thanks kuba), an ATX PSU, and a Dallas chip, as well as connecting to the L1.

I don't know, a lot of people really like when I lift things :) . I have plans for lifting a deskside, should I obtain one, using a car jack and wooden frame. If I get a rack system, I'll probably make some excuse about atoms not technically touching nuclei so the Onyx rack is hovering and then cut to an O2 floating around on one of those leafblower hovercrafts.

Awesome video, thanks for the review of my adapter.

Couple points:

1) My last name is Tyszko - the easiest way to pronounce it would be "tee sshh co" or "tissue co" ;)

2) The adapters do not come in anti-static bags, there is virtually nothing on the board that could break due to static electricity

3) The design is deliberate so that the boards fit snugly, with no space between the main and 12V boards. I don't think there's any risk of shorting, but if it's a concern to anyone - tape will do. But be careful - the traces are exposed for a reason - to dissipate the heat...

4) The smaller 12V piese has only 6 pins to the board - that's simply because there are no board-mounted 8-pin plugs available on the market, the only ones are for actual crimped wire. Some of the original SGI PSU's actually only used 6 pins not 8 anyway.


Cheers
