More about xbox power supply 205w
  1. Have you looked at the power leads for the Xbox 360 PSU and compared it with the power input connectors of your PC?
  2. my pc consumes 190w
  3. In theory if your pc doesn't draw more than 175w or so, then of course you could, a xbox is basically a pc.

    However that doesn't mean it's going to hook up to a ATX motherboard.
  4. How are you going to get power to your PC parts?
  5. I have a fat supply 205w from xbox 360
  6. I stretch the wire
  7. Have you looked inside your PC case yet?
  8. of course
  9. why you ask
  10. You'll need PSU connectors like these to get power to your PC parts.
  11. ok I have it all, I thought that I connect wires directly only missing 3.3 v
  12. Forgive me my English is bad
  13. please just tell me it is possible
  14. How do you go from your XBox 360 power connector



    To the 20/24pin ATX power connector for your motherboard?



    And that's just 1 of the connectors you need for your PC.
  15. My components is:g530 intel hd6570 low profil,wd 320gb,slim dvd,mb msi socet 1155
  16. Socket 1155 motherboard needs 24pin main ATX connector like in the picture above.
    Plus a 4 or 8 pin +12V CPU aux power connector.

    HDD needs SATA power connector with 5V and 3.3V.
    DVD needs SATA power connector with 5V and 3.3V.
  17. I understand what you say, with 12v'll divorce at each point on pc
    and so for everything else
  18. I can't see how you can jury rig your Xbox 360 to power your PC.

    Looks like you need a Plan B. A PC type PSU.

    How are you going to step down +12V to 3.3V?
  20. now I add a picture
  21. stupid but if I can super


  22. You're also going to have to wire the ground (com = common ground)

    And I'm pretty sure you need 3.3V for the RAM which is stepped down to 1.5V by your motherboard.

    with invertor
  24. so what do you think
  25. I have -12v, 5v, +12 to xbox cable,only I do not have 3,3v
  26. Inverter wont work. They change DC power to AC power.

    You'd need to rig up some resistors to change voltage.
    For 5V to 3.3V using 10K and a 20K resistor
    
    +5v -R1(10K)-+-R2(20K)---GND
                 |
                 ~3.3v
    
  27. sorry my mistake, just that I thought
  28. Right now I think you lack the knowledge and skill to carry off a really pretty advanced project like that. At least not without hurting or damaging your expensive PC parts trying to save a bit of cash.

    200 EUR
  32. You have an idea - you don't yet have a plan on how to make the idea work.

    I can't say it will work till you show a plan to make it happen.
  33. Thank you so much
  34. anyway thanks for the advice
  35. Here is a plan to use a PC power supply to run an XBox 360. That is a much easier project.

    ATX power supply for an Xbox360 plan
  36. when I have plan then I call
  37. Let me fix that bad link
  38. Not sure why youd even want to attempt this. Just buy a damn ATX PSU.
  39. I have a small pc case home made and no space for atx power.
  40. You could use a made for PC DC power supply.
    You might be able to find similar parts right for your area.

    PicoPSU DC/DC

    192w AC-DC Power Adapter, 12v 16A
    http://www.mini-box.com/12v-16A-AC-DC-Power-Adapter
  41. Would be helpful to everyone who is taking their time to help you to list your specs. You may be able to get away with a small form factor PSU, I use an 85w that has a power brick and I can mount anywhere in a custom case or the PicoPSU, which I have one as well and they work quite well.
