Re: Power Supply Centuriontech or Exxos

Another question, if I replace the PSU’s, then will all of this new clean power harm the still original motherboard capacitors? No. But if your ST hasn't been used for many years you should inspect it thoroughly before you power it up. Although I have never seen it myself in an Atari, old electroly...

Re: Power Supply Centuriontech or Exxos

PicoPSU would certainly be less expensive. A PicoPSU and an external brick leaves a lot more room for internal add-ons and also moves the heat source to the outside of the cabinet.

Power Supply Centuriontech or Exxos

Hi Y’all,

I am looking to purchase five new power supplies (520STFM, 1040STE, Mega ST4, Falcon, & Falcon MKX).

Does any one have experience with Centuriontech or Exxos PSU’s?
I would really appreciate your opinions and comparisons.

Thanks,

Re: scsi2sd problem

To What computer is your SCSI2SD attached?
-I’m wondering if the new firmware reset your settings? For example, if the update enabled “Parity,” some Atari’s will not work with parity enabled. It may help to confirm the settings are compatible with your computer.
