ok more detail. (mabey more than you want)
i remember finding out who made the SD11G5's external AC/DC adapter back before it was even released. i forget exactly how, i think it had somthin to do with the model number or serial number or somthin. i posted a thread about it but no one seemed interested in an external 220w AC/DC adapter that was completely passive. (I HAVE NO IDEA WHY!?!?) specially considering most people on this forum will tell you that 300watts is more than enough for MOST systems.
heres the manufacturers website for it:
http://www.delta.com.tw/product/ps/adap ... d=2&ptid=3
now delta doesnt sell to end users. they sell to company's that use their products with their retail products that they sell to us. so you wont find any delta badged versions around unless someone got their hands on a sample directly from delta somehow. i called them, they wouldnt give me a sample for review or let me buy one either.
at that point i sorta gave up, specially after the thread had little to no interest. at the time i wasnt really all that serious about using it either, but i later changed my mind when i learned more about mini-itx systems.
so a couple of months ago i'm researching information about a micro-atx system im building when i stumble across a mini-itx site. they had some internal 12v DC/DC ATX psu's that ran completely passive up to 200watts. but they needed an external 12v AC/DC adapter to make them work. and i soon found out that the largest passive one anyone could find was around 120watts. then i remembered about the SD11G5's 220watt psu adapter, and started digging.
i soon found out that shuttle wasnt the only one using this adapter. dell, and i think gateway were also. others may as well but i didnt dig that deep. i found them by plugging in the model number of the delta unit, and then partials of the delta model number.
i think i actually found delta's 180w version first.
GATEWAY Profile 5 AC Power Adapter 6500735 ADP 180AB
dug a little more and ultimatly found out dell uses the 220w version.
DELL SX270 AC ADAPTER DA 1 Y2515 ADP 220W
you can get a 12v 200w dc/dc atx psu from www.mini-box.com
