Gateway 610...one big can of worms
Finally talked to the customer today and they decided to go the economic route and have me put together a custom external PSU for their Gateway 610 ALL-IN-ONE pc. I'm actually going to enjoy this little project and going to try to make it look as clean as possible. I'll post some pics tomorrow and keep you guys updated. I'm going to use a spare PSU we had around the shop that's rated at 170W and is super quiet. I've actually had it powering the Gateway for about 1 1/2 weeks now and ran multiple apps, videos, and internet radio on full blast and it's not even luke warm and still quiet as a mouse. I'm actually surprised that this generic PSU is this quiet. Of course it doesn't have a heavy load since the Gateway cannot really be upgraded anymore than it is. I went today and bought some heat shrink tubing and some plastic wire clips in order to try and keep the wires in order. Hope the final product is as good as I picture it.
