As long as your power supply has enough watts you should be completely fine. The board at "max" uses 65 watts (although I haven't had it go above 50 or so). I'm not sure what your peripherals draw, but a few amps at most for each is probably overdoing it, so 3*(12*2)+65=137. Then you have to include fans, I always include a buffer as well, so something like the 160 watt power supply above would work.
Although I doubt you would ever use all 160 watts. The motherboard idles low most of the time, the blu-ray idles near 0.5 amps, and this is more than likely similar with your sata and ssd as well. If you search Google you can find a lot of tables for the DH61AG showing the average power draw of it and other devices attached to it.
I bet most could get away with a 100 watt power supply (that's what I'm using with sata hard drive, dvd drive, wifi, LVDS, and a few USB slots). You could probably get away with a slightly smaller power supply than that, but I wouldn't go too much lower. It seems that most laptop power supplies (like the one I'm using) range around 3-6 amps, 3 amps sounds a bit low to me (57 watts), I'd stick with at least 4 amps (76 watts).
Thank you both for your answers.
But still, I don't see it.
the 19V DC looks fine to me too.. 160 Watt is more than enough
but, It has only one connector!? that goes obviously in the mini-itx board..
So what do I put in the power-inputs on my SSD, HD or blu-ray?? And where does this power come from?
A normal Powersupply has xx-connectors for all the SSD/HD/ DVD/Blu-ray, additional Airblowers..? of which you can tap-off. And special ones for the regular ATX-MB, CPU's...
This powersupply(19V DC) has only 1 connector?
Hi Nikias - The tech spec for the board sets out the power requirements. You only need the one power supply. Here is the link. http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20068/eng/DH61AG_TechProdSpec04.pdf . If you have not done so already, you should review the articles on the product support page which can be found here http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/dsktpboards/db-dh61ag?wapkw=(dh61ag) . If you get through all this reading, here is one more with some illustrations.http://cache-www.intel.com/cd/00/00/47/97/479749_479749.pdf. Good luck. Peter
(yes) I saw the techspec before..
and I saw a SATA-power connector on the MB. (letter L)
So, I would need a cable like this?
To power my hdd2'5, SSD and blu-ray?(2 such cables actually)
And take the power from the MB-sata-power connector instead of the powersupply?
(I'm just not familiar with such practice..)
If this is the way to do it, then my question is answered.
I have no hands-on experience with this board Nikias, have only read about it. By the way - before you buy any cables, check this link. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/desktops/desktop-board-dh61ag-whats-in-the-box.html?wapkw=(Intel+Desktop+Board+DH61AG) . Regards. Peter
That should be it.
Such a cable is included..
Thanks for the help!
With little attention, why?
I'll use a regular display or tv, so I won't be needing the internal lvds connector i guess..?
But I'll have another look at it.
