Since the slowly popularity of the Internet, computer has become people the basis of the study, work and entertainment tool. Especially in the energy tension, under the condition of global warming, the world is watching the green energy-saving, MINI – ITX computer on the market more and more popular, it is not only favored by customers in industry, more and more into the hands of ordinary consumers, almost all of the host computer and chassis and hardware manufacturers are racing to launch their own ITX computers and accessories. May not be a long time, the MINI – ITX computer will replace the existing ordinary desktop. Only from the province electricity into consideration, compared with the ordinary desktops, MINI – ITX computer can save at least 1 KWH each day. A year as it will save a lot of electricity expenses.
ITX power classification
ITX computer determines the don’t need a large volume, low power consumption miniaturization is changed into the developing direction of it. ITX computer motherboard, hard drive, power supply and other hardware that its characteristic is to take up the space is little. ITX power volume is much smaller than the ordinary PC power. From size classification can be divided into the following kinds
DC – DC ATX power supply
Is by the external power adapter 12 V supply voltage can be converted to a built-in DC – DC power ITX version into a + 12 V to 12 V + 5 V + 3.3 V to + 5 VSB ITX computer power supply. Its characteristics of small volume. Heating the main part in the adapter. General power rating for the 60 w, 90 w, 100 w but weakness for small power can meet high configuration ITX computer.
U ITX – 1 power supply
It is a special design of customized for ITX computer ITX power. The size is 150 * 82 * 40 mm. It is made of small 1 u power evolved, in appearance can still see the shadow of the small 1 u, but it solves a series of main engine noise, heat dissipation problems. In ITX is most common in the computer case. Applies to general ITX ITX can also be used in the high configuration computer. Rated power is generally divided into 150 w, 180 w, 200 w, 180 w four specifications.
Shin TFX power
As can be seen from the name on it and traditional TFX power have bound. Yes it can be said to be a TFX power (behind will be introduced to TFX power) on the size of thin ITX computer power supply of a “waist”. Size: 180 * 60 * 48 mm.
Short TFX power
It is a by TFX power development in relatively short ITX computer power size. Size: 130 * 65 * 65 mm) and Shin TFX power they does not see more on ITX case. Mainly because of the introduction of this two specifications of the power of ITX case manufacturer not too much.
Micro power supply
ITX – Micro power general application in the Micro ATX motherboard compatible and ITX motherboard small ITX case. Due to the size slightly bigger. Micro power appearance size for: 125 * 100 * 63.5 MM, so using Micro power source for ITX computer power supply chassis is larger. Accurate said it was just a Micro ATX computer transition to ITX, a power supply.
The MINI TFX power
ITX – TFX power supply with Micro power in compatible with Micro ATX motherboard and ITX motherboard can see it on my little ITX case. TFX power appearance size: 175 * 85 * 65. Use TFX power as ITX PC power supply for electric appliance ITX case also is a Micro ATX computer transition to ITX, a power supply.
ITX – power SFX Micro power supply, TFX power supply same as compatible in Micro ATX motherboard and ITX motherboard can see little ITX case. Size: 145 * 125 * 145. Also belong to a Micro ATX computer transition to ITX, a power supply.
