I have a Sawtooth 450 Mhz and am planning to buy a processor upgrade. So in order to prepare for the overheating I have installed a couple of fans and a simple fan controller switch, but there's a problem. I keep getting random kernel panics every 24 hours or so. I was having kernel panics every minute when i had my monitor power routed through my power supply, but that's unplugged from the power supply and just straight to the wall. Now my question is what ATX power supply will work with my Mac?
The Sawtooth power supply supplies 208 watts of power. I recently bought a Dynex (I know that brand is crap, but I was experimenting) 400 W power supply but all it does is flick on for a split second like there's not enough power being supplied.
Now with that Dynex power supply supplying twice the power I found it odd that it was doing this. The only difference that I saw on the Dynex P.S. and the stock Sawtooth P.S. is the power switch that the Dynex brand has.
Please give me insight all-powerful, all-knowing Mac-Modders.
you can use an ATX PSU in a sawtooth. (but not in the gigabit anymore) but you will have to adjust the pinout. some wires are different. i just hope you didnt damage your logicboard with your previeous experiments... have a look here
Nope the mobo is fine. I'm using my Sawtooth right now. I decided to return the Dynex PSU and get an Antec True Power 380W on eBay for $40, not bad. Looked at your link and it was very useful. There's also another one i found just for my Sawtooth
